I don't know which of my bizillion cats to photograph. My cats can be quite boring - eat, sleep, crap horrible cat bombs, sleep some more. Sometime in there they get in some vandalism involving either the garbage cans or breaking into cabinets.
I got a great idea! Use a trail cam like hunters use for tracking deer. It is motion activated so you don't need to be there 24/7.
Oh, wait, just realized the error of this plan - might only get 1 or 2 pictures in that time period for the especially sleepy kitty...
But mine is pretty active, might just get photographic evidence of her actually scratching the chair. When I come home from work, see fresh claw marks and ask 'who's been scratching my chair?!' - all I get is that perfectly innocent 'who me??'.

I remember that some sciencey types did an actual study on this a few years back. Turns out that cats do NOT spend the majority of their time sleeping. They spend the majority of their time looking out the window. Who knew?

I'm in, for the waking hours. Maybe I'll do two. Becky because she is 13 years old and still looks like a kitten (though she doesn't play like one any more) and Rachael, because she's the youngest and most active.

One inspiration for this Cat-Lapse Photography project was the strap-on collar cams that captured cats on the prowl and during nocturnal hunts. Much more interesting footage than what our hard-won photos will reveal.
