Object of My Affection: My Feline Baby Named Momo


Everyone loves to take photos of their darling and photogenic pet, and I am no exception. I also feel lucky that I now don't have to chase my Siamese cat around with my camera so much -- he seems to have grown accustomed to me taking photos of him every so often!

While this is certainly not the first time I’ve written about my Siamese cat and shared my film photos of him, I hope you’ll let me reaffirm my love for this feline baby who has been with me for seven years — and thus, has become one of my favorite subjects to photograph.

My first film photos of Momo, taken using my Holga 120 CFN. You can see from the position of his ears that he’s not entirely happy about me pointing a strange object at him.

I remember writing about how, in the beginning, I would need to chase Momo around if I want to take a photo of him — he seemed to have the attention span of a restless child. Through the years, I guess he grew accustomed to me pointing a camera at him, although I still need to be quick and stealthy every now and then.

Now, I realize that I haven’t told much about him, actually, other than he's as lazy as any cat can be. He was just a tiny two month-old kitten when he was given to me for my birthday. He was my first cat, yet we bonded rather quickly. I bought a wicker pet bed for him, but within a week, he refused to sleep on it. He would instead meow for me to pick him up and place him beside me on my bed. He always had a space on my bed ever since.

Fast-forward to the present, he remains a baby — a mama’s boy — even at seven years-old and 10 pounds fat. He waits for me (impatiently) to get home, “talks” to me when he needs something (especially attention), and follows me around like a shadow. I give him all the love that he wants and needs, and I guess, in return, he poses for me (when he’s in the mood) and lets me take as many photos of him as I want.
