Been working with my show catz a lot. I think we're all getting a lot better but I still feel like somethings kinda off? I guess some advice/critiques would be nice.
^^^ I took a LOT of pix of Bumble. The last one has the best legs but no matter what I do I just can't get the tail curve right! Calico eyes also kinda confuse me bc some judges I've seen don't care about them and other judges prefer straighter eye lids and being able to be as much as the eye as possible.
^^^ I think both these poses are pretty good but the tail balls are slightly different and idk if that really matters. Also if you look real closely she has a single black pixel on the top of her head and idk if that's normal or not.
^^^ the first one has a better tail and front legs, but the first one has better back legs and eyes. Plus more confusing calico eyes :/
The last pic of Bumble is definitely the best. He has a Calico tail, and this is what they look like at their best, when posing as a Calico. Their tail does not curve as much as other tails, and it’s normal. I replied about Calico (body parts) posing in a couple other threads below yours, if you want to take a look Bumble has a BIS-worthy pose.
Second cat has Calico legs, which almost always show a few pixels either left or right of the legs, depending on the angle of the cat when posing. It’s normal and should not be penalized in shows. I agree that the last tail ball could be a tad more to the right, which could be achieved at the expense of the leg alignment by angling the cat slightly away from the camera when posing. Good poses, though.
About the last cat, the first pose is definitely the best (ignoring the eyelids). The tail is perfect, and legs alignment is very good, too. Don’t pay any attention to the back legs — as long as the front legs are aligned, the back legs will be at their best (no way to change how they look separately from the front legs).

You're welcome We have a guide for catz posing pinned in the Show Arena, with examples of acceptable "imperfections" for certain breedz or body parts. I'll link it here if you want to look into it further: Catz Posing & Judging Guide

Thor: Oh no I have 44 profile notifications now-- I found a method to my showing madness but it makes notifications like crazy! I wonder if there's a way to turn off certain ones in settings haha

Arie: Thor, it should be possible to disable notifications per (sub)board! I know I've done it before.

Alex@Marvel: So I decided after (I don't even know how many) years of Gotham being my prefix, it's now Marvel. ^^ I felt like it was time for a rebranding.

Gray Dragoness: I really wish eyelids were based on the main coat color... or just all black, either would work for me

Alex@Marvel: I don't forsee me ever going away from my Sammies, Thor, but I am still searching for the right cat breed so technically yes?
