Baby photos.

She was a funny baby and I was a horrible photographer but we were already together and that was the most important.

Usyaka the funny baby, 2008.

    Her paws are huuuuuge! And her eyes are so expressive!

  2. Aww! She does look different! Not at all an awkward child, though – just as elegant as always!

    Oh my goodness! I can never fail to be overcome with little fuzzy feelings of awesomeness when I see your pictures of her.

    Usyaka was tiny little one.

    Questions – cold rrrrussian winters: does that mean the old heating works was used for building structure (walls, etc)? And, how cold was cold? My imagination says very cold.

      Well, that’s a piece of an old central heating there, a Soviet one, I guess. Theoretically it still worked, hot water was running in the tubes, warming up the metal layers which were supposed to warm up the rooms. In practice though they were just slightly warm, some metal constructions from the inside were missing and so Usyaka could fit inside and get as much warmth as possible. It was an old flat, with old types of windows, wooden ones, winds got easily inside. Sometimes we had tiny bits of paper and dust sliding along the floors. I often carried Usyaka in my arms and put lots of pillows and boxes around the flat so she could hide there. Before that winter ended, we moved to another, a much warmer flat.

      That first winter wasn’t that bad. The next one, and the last one for us, was the worst. It was -35C outside. When you go out in temperatures like these you first of all feel that you consist of water, your eyes become like pieces of cold glass and you feel your eyelids sliding along them. Everything you breath out instantly becomes ice on your clothes. Usyaka didn’t feel any of that, we lived in a very warm flat with heated up floors and constant +28C. It was almost comfortable, but extremely dry, because that heating dries up air very much.

      And then it was over. We moved to a place where we moan when it’s just +10C outside and we call it freezing. Usyaka loves that climate so much better and so do we :)

    She looks adorable! So tiny! So innocent, when she was a baby.
    I don’t think you were a bad photographer at that time, you only got better! :)

    • Alexandra says:

      Thank you, Dianda! Well, I was much worse and I wasn’t used to Usyaka at all, I didn’t know her that well. I’m still very happy I took so many photos, they are a treasure to me now :) Just look at her, she’s so adorable I can literally cry looking at these photos now :))

  6. What a CUTIE pie! She really WAS a baby before growing into the self-possessed beauty she is now.

    This cat is so unique looking and the prospectives that the photos are taken from are interesting.
