The "Cat Fud" Far Side cartoon is one of my favourites and one I could pay a tribute to relatively easily since I have a washing machine and a cat. The dog is missing but I think the joke works without it visible.

My cat is an experienced model by now and very curious so just opening up the washing machine was enough to get her interested.

Post processing: Adjusted curves and levels, cloned out minor distraction, cropped, resized, added text and saved for web. Some spot editing to bring out the scribbles and the cat.

Lol! This would have been cool as a Triptych, this first, then one with it in the dryer with the lit closed and then taking a stuffed toy-cat and had the last shot with the dryer going full speed :)

All it lacks is the dog behind the washer! Very well done (and my favorite Far Side to boot!).

It made a lot more sense when I realised that the dog was trying to spell "food".

the joke doesn't really work without the dog
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/15/2006 12:05:23 AM
Would have been better maybe if you had gotten a shot of the cat jumping in? But regardless, this is quite good!
