The Prawn Protests Against Photos

Remember how much Bronzy loves being belly-up?

That's what earned her the nickname Bron the Prawn.
Because she sleeps on her back while curled up like a prawn.

I love seeing her all prawnish.
It's cute.
But it also makes 2 things very difficult to do.

The 1st is carrying her comfortably.
It always feels awkward.
Because the moment you lift her,
she curls up.

And this leads to the 2nd thing.
Being photographed with Bronzy in my arms is impossible.
Well, okay... It's not impossible.
But it does take a long time and hundreds of attempts
to uncurl her and get that one decent shot.

Here's a compressed version of what photo-taking is like
for my little furry prawn:

Mommy, do I have to be carried for this?

No, no! I have to stay curled. Don't force me to straighten up.

Okay, I think I've fractured my lumbar.

Too much face scrunching. You've spoilt it!

*600 photos later*

This is good enough, Mommy.

Bronzy, those are some really good pictures of you even though you objected every inch of the way. You are just as cute as you can be. Take care.

How could anyone not want a prawn of their own after seeing you! Ohhhh, you can curl over here anytime you want, Bronzy. I could make a little bed of rice, and .... wait, that's a different kind of prawn; I got off track, sorry. Bronzy, King of Prawness, the newest territory ruled by cats and hidden away in a secret location.
I think I've had too much nip today.

Bronzy, you have to understand that, even under ordinary circumstances, humans are smitten with cute creatures like you. Curl up like a prawn and they go all gaga!
