Max was our ‘charismatic’ cat we adopted from the Humane Society…You never knew where he would turn up – in an open drawer, a cupboard, on top of a roof, etc.- but his most unusual habit was leaping on to the shower rod from the vanity & he accomplished this feat often & with great skill (never landing in the tub! – and thank goodness for that – I was in it the first time it happened! :)) I eventually made sure my camera was present whenever I saw him sitting on the vanity focusing intently on the shower rod, mentally preparing for ‘the leap’. The jump was the more difficult shot of the series & the proof of his actual leap from the vanity is shown in images below. This ‘peekaboo’ shot was a bonus and totally unexpected – he even posed & gave me time to focus & get it right! :)) …the camera being a totally manual SLR at the time
