Ah, but Max brings in Beanie Babies.
Talia, in this picture, is looking for a live mouse. On the duvet. On top of me. She'd come in doing her prey growl - the one that's muffled because it has to go round the body of whatever it is she's got in her mouth.
I was woken out of a doze by this, and called for bellinghwoman
to kindly please come remove the mouse. Talia dropped mouse on duvet, bellinghwoman
caught it (this takes practice, but we've had plenty of practice), and I grabbed the camera from beside the bed and shot this picture down the bed.
(I'd just bought the camera in question from knell
, and was reading the manual in bed. And was referring to the camera itself while doing so. Which is why I had a Nikon D70 on the bedside table.)
