#fessermakesfaces

Thursday, March 31, 2016


Something that has been missing from the blog for a while is pet photos. I used to post them constantly. While there is still a fair share of them on my instagram account, most of them never make their way to the blog. I recently created a hashtag for Professor Stingray because I tend to post a certain kind of photo of him quite often. It's #fessermakesfaces, and it's full of the ridiculous faces he makes. Most are post yawn, or mid chirp but some are just plain silly faces I happen to catch with the camera. He's the most expressive little critter I've ever met. At the risk of sounding like a total cat lady (which I am, it's literally tattooed on my knuckles) he's the funniest "person" I know. Not a day goes by that this little dude doesn't make me laugh.

In the nearly six years this little rascal has been in my life not too much other than his fur color has changed with him. He's always been this rambunctious little cat that's just full of personality. While browsing for old photos of him, I found the diptych below from 2010. Apparently I've always thought his yawn face was hilarious.

Even though it's easy enough to browse his hashtag over on instagram I thought this little dude needed his own blog post. These photos crack me up, I hope they brighten your day as well.

from 2010. Those tiny teeth!!!

PS. If you need more cuteness in your life, here's the very first time I posted about him - "a new addition" I can't even handle the cuteness!

  3. I love cats and I know their behaviour well. But the moments you took photos of his face, makes him look like he's mostly smiling or laughing :-D

    1. Yeah, I had no idea either! I probably wouldn't even believe it if I didn't have so many photos of him throughout his life. It seems like he's still getting darker too!

  12. The cutest! My favorite 'faces' that Steel makes are those in which he's upside down cause his big ol' great dane lips just hang all floopy!!!

  13. Aww, I love these (and have always really enjoyed your pet photos)! Cats have so much personality, don't they? They really are like little furry people. I think those who have never been around cats tend to think of them as very aloof and devoid of personality, but my cat's a total clown! I adore the hashtag, too!

    1. Exactly, and I can understand it to an extent. My cats aren't too big on company. When people are over, they hide but when it's just me and Jeff or my family they're just little balls of personality! I wish everyone could get to see what I see in my cats (and then everyone would want cats and there would be no more in shelters! woooo! :P )
