For this week's Camera Critters our cat Bean is the unfortunate star.
A little background is required: we had sold our home in Chicago, and after all the packing was done and the truck had already left for St. Paul, the prospective owner decided he couldn't wait until we left to begin renovating. His impatience left Bean with a sort of kitty PTSD to this day.
While we were away for the day, he decided to remove all of the carpet and linoleum on both floors of the house. [Our neighbors said it was like a scene from 'The Money Pit' when all of the workers converge on the old house.] The loud and tumultuous process apparently was done in a very short time, while our poor dog and cat were likely scurrying to get out of the way, hiding and otherwise being scared out of their wits.
Fast forward nearly two years later: whenever Bean hears loud engines, doors slamming or machines droning she runs for cover. This photo shows her in the least pathetic of her hiding places...even a little comical because although she wears a menacing scowl, she thought she was safely hidden. Actually she was really in plain sight on top of our chest-on-chest. Poor kitty.
