    LOL, a shot of a cat was one of my first captures the very first time I held an SLR.
    I think it went something like horse, tree, barn, Cat, flower. All the major stuff was covered in my first 25 mins.

    mine were of flowers. If they're not of cats, they're of flowers.

    Cats,dogs, prized flower blooms from the back yard, a soda can closeup, a TV remote, a lens cap, a camera and or lens box sitting on a table, one's computer keyboard--ALL are well-respected, highly sought after subject matter for one's, "I just got my first d-slr!" post. The key is to take the photo soon after receiving the camera, and then uploading and posting it AS SOON AS POSSIBLE! And, extra bonus points for straight-out-of-camera size, something in the 4,358-pixel size on the long axis. Oh, and NO POST work on it either--that's triple bonus points!

    You know I can think of far worse things to be taking pictures of than cats. Cats can be walking art, IMHO. Still I know what you mean. It seems nearly everyone who gets a new camera always takes pics of one of three things first their pet, their kid or some flower nearby. I probably won't have mine till December, if then, but I promise I'll do my best to find a first subject that's a pleasant surprise.

    ;P
