I always think kitties looks cuter when their pupils are larger. Slit pupils are a "meh" to me, but when they look at me with those big, round, black eyes, they are completely irresistable! :heart

Anyone has the same feeling? :p







(Tried to get a decent shot with Metoo, but seems she was not in the mood...:eek:nekitty)

Umm yeah ... Sienna's pupils dilate when she's about to "get" me. It's really funny .. you can always tell when the attack is coming. Her favorite game is harrassing and stalking ME. She has started coming up to me and sitting expectantly when I'm on the couch. I'm then required to hide my hand under an afghan (or my skirt tail) so she can rear up and dig for it. She looks hilarious when she grabs the blanket in her teeth and pulls back shaking her head like a dog!

Normally she looks like an owl with her big glowing eyes and small pupils and dark face with its tiny nose (she's a traditional doll-faced persian).

YES!!!! Archie does this when he wants dinner. I think he knows he has me in his paw like that! Too cute :D
One of the routine in my home is after her late night meal, Meatball will always hop on my pillow waiting for me to come to bed. I will spend 10 minutes looking into her big, round, black eyes and telling her how lovely she is (she usually waggle her tail after each sentence). Then I will send her out of my bedroom so that she can have fun with Metoo and I can have some good sleep :D

My Metoo's "black eye moment" is at early morning. When I wake up, open my bedroom door, she is always sitting right in front of the door. I will pick her up and lay back onto my bed, with Metoo lying on my chest. We will then look into each others black eyes with me softly petting her and she purring. It's our quiet, tranquilizing 10 minutes "ritual" before I rise and shine :luv

Joy's eyes only get like that when it get's dark. Otherwise I have those clear blue eyes staring at me!
Yeah, it's always when the room is dark, making it so hard to photograph! I never get a good quality photo of those black eyes :dis The pictures in my first post was taken with camera set at "night mode". It's sort of clear, but the color tone is so off...

Black eyes make me think "angry, ready to attack, back away" ... never really liked them for that reason, only been leery of them. I know they can get big like that in low light situations, but that's pretty rare - lights are either on or off in this house.

I see nothing much wrong with the photos, they make the beautiful cats look, soft, warm and friendly.

Io's only get like that when she's up to something.

Or during *that*, and I'll look over and she's at the foot of the bed, tail lashing and the biggest eyes I've ever seen.

I like warm-toned photos in general, too. Looks very cozy and have a sense of time :) But for my Meatball, I much prefer natural light condition. In warm light she looks more like a brown tabby, rather than the golden tabby she truly is :wink:

Bizarre bit of historical information - part of the reasons why both cats and goats were looked on as potentially "devilish" was the shape of their pupils.

That is so funny! Our little Angel does the same thing. She loves going for activity under a blanket. She strikes like a snake and then sometimes she will jump back all crazy and circle around, etc... Sometimes she will do a pounce from a ways back.
