Honestly I was just looking for an excuse to post this pic! :hyper::lol: But....I thought it would make a great thread also. The pic I'm posting is of my late Maine Coon Tama. After he pasted I knew I had 3 rolls of undeveloped 35mm film in a closet. Was just something I kept putting off. 2 rolls were a special film by Signature Color that was actually like a movie film and only they could develop the film. With technology and all they are now out of business. I knew without a doubt that there were pics of Tama on there and was determined to find a way to get them developed no matter the cost. I found a place online called film rescue and though it was a bit pricy I immediately sent them in. As I thought there were loads of pics of Tama in his teenage yrs! Needless to say I was really happy and in brought back a lot of memories!

Obviously in the pic it is a snowy day. May have been his first experience with show. I'm not sure but he was having a ball in it! To me there's nothing better than seeing a cat or any other animal in a full sprint. It just looks so natural! Notice how none of his paws are touching the ground when the pic was taken. A lucky shot but I just went wow when I saw it! Hopefully you'll see the beauty in it that I did. One of the few advantages to letting your cat outdoors is them having the ability to let them have the open space to just run their little hearts out. I keep my cats indoors now unless supervised and on a leash but back when this was taken my mind set was that they should be able to go outdoors and be...a cat. I was lucky that he lived to be almost 16 and no major problems with indoor/outdoor life. In the end it was cancer that got him. I'm dedicating this thread to him.

Hopefully you guys have some great action shots to share on this thread. If so please share them here. A shout out to @basscat. I know you have some! I've already seen a couple! Hope to see you here!

Gypsy is so fast and dislikes having her photo taken so much that most action shots are blurs that I've posted in a 'fails' thread. This picture is the first time she actually walked in her jacket rather than just flopping over. When we first go out now she acts like it is a straight jacket weighing a ton and can't move in it until something catches her eye and then off she goes.:bliss::cool:

This is her $25 Salvation Army scratching post/ loveseat that she graciously allows us to sit upon as we apply tummy rubs and brushies.:rolleyes:
