Nowadays, Phoebe, aged 18, is a very committed sleepy head during the day. At night she prowls around and on a bad night seeks attention and meows loudly every hour or so. Not a good look but she is an old lady.
I was just photographing her sleepy head look when she decided to give this enormous yawn. Her teeth have a big build up of tartar but she is too old to submit her to a general anaesthetic. I have seen lions doing an identical yawn-it's a cat thing.
The sleepy head look photo is below.
I used the X Vario for this shot as the electronic viewfinder swivels up 90% so you can look down into it which is useful for these closeups.
