Everything belongs to Oribel.

 
I know, that has been mentioned before and has been well established. Well, it gets reiterated fairly regularly. The other night Hubband and I were setting up the "photo box" we got a while back. I had been looking at these for awhile and though it was kind of cool. It comes with the collapsible box, two lights, a (marginal) tripod, clips, and a carrying case. Cool, but not worth the prices I kept seeing, but then I noticed that Think Geek had them. We decided to try it for pictures of the socks, and of course we got help. All in all, the help turned out OK, except for the cat hair I had to dump out when she was done.
 

 
When she was bored with hanging out in the box, playing/biting at the Velcro, and trying to steal the socks that were the original photo subject, she decided that her scratching post was trying to run off and needed anchoring. While she was keeping track of her post/perch, she noticed a moving, long orange thing that needed to be attacked. It is often a toss-up as to who comes out the winner when this happens. (Just after this she had a longer run-in with it.)

Don't forget to check out Whiskers on Wednesday!
(Oh, and Think Geek has a ton of other cool stuff, just in case you've never checked them out.)

Speaking of cats and light boxes, I had to run Fluffy out of mine just last night! lol It must be that pristine white surface that just begs for cat hair. lol

Thank you.

See, a cat in a photo box is funny and mildly inconvenient. Can you imagine Sissy? (Well, sure you can...)

Love the photos of Miss Oribel. Hmm, wonder if Lucy would stay out of it. Would it help my photos? g

That is so awesome! I'm surprised she didn't fall off the scratching post! Great video.

At first I thought that light box was one of those mesh/cloth laundry hampers.
