    Aww, cute kitty. I hear you about the hard to photograph color! I've got a (tortoise shell?- that's what we call 'em) black and brown one. She's so cute but when photographed she ends up looking like a turd with eyes.:(

    A turd! Poor kitty!

    I find I have to tell the cam to over expose a stop or two. But, then again.. thats not always a sure fire way either.... and the darn thing moves to fast unless he is asleep....

    "Midnight" is a beautiful name, all black cats are my all-time favourite colour cats (though we went for a striped one ... what do you call "striped" again? "Tabby"?), and black cats are EXTREMELY difficult to photograph. I did a session for friends with their all black tom-cat and my, it WAS a challenge! Also because that "Paul" would not sit still!!! (But one of my pics "made the press" in the end :biggrin: )

    And your "Midnight" still is very, very young, hm?
    I must never let Sabine see these ... she will wail again and again: "Oh why did we have Mia spayed, I would have LOVED to have kittens at least ONCE!" I must agree that kittens look super-cute! But....

    He is Mine! Get your own!:lol: Unfortunantly, that usually means he is pushing buttons and that cat has done things in 2 seconds that take me all day to fix.

    Green or Brown depending on what he feels like. They seem to change.

    Awww...Sooo tiny!

    I have a black cat too, and I hear what you're saying about difficulties photographing them! The only way I can get decent shots is using natural light...
