We love each other! Before and After

Tredyffrin Easttown Real Estate is more than just about homes for you, you also need to realize your pets also need to be happy and relaxed. Trudy snapped the orginal photo of these two guys yesterday and sent it to me. 

Max and sam original

Lovely as it is, showing a pair of very relaxed cats I realized it needed a little help to use it in a blog post. It is rare to get these two like this, Max, the one at the back is the alpha cat, and he is not as cuddly with Sam, who is in the front, wants him to be. So we end up with squabbling and they sit separately or one goes out.

A little work to the photo, I downloaded it from my email, opened it in Microsoft Picture manager, may be Live Manager, rotated it to begin with, then cropped the top and bottom of the photo, and the Microsoft program has a button that will automatically improve the quality of the photo for you, whilst i don't always like what it does, often it is enough to give a good, decent photo. Sometimes you have to go back and adjust manually brightness, color, etc. Today the automatic adjustment worked fine to give me this photo of Max and Sam relaxing.

Nick and Trudy,

Great title and a wonderful illustration of before and after.  Max and Sam are very sweet and beautiful.  Are they litter mates?  And no doubt, this is one of the most comfortable places in your home.  A

OMG that picture of them is super adorable and you should blow that up!

Ron and Alexandra Seigel no Max came from a shelter first, and is more of a Maine Coon type, we were looking for a similar Maine Coon as he was having a lot of anmxiety issues and losing a lot of hair. However Trudy went to the Vet one day and Sam was sitting there, he had come from a trailer park and is very much a trailer park cat, loves being outside. Max always prefers to come to me, Sam will go to Trudy, but if she is not around he will agree to sit with me if Max is not already on top of me. Sam is younger and seems more active but Max has become more active with Sam around they do fight with each other more than love each other so photos like this are rare.

Kristin Johnston - REALTOR® it is one of those great shots.

Hi Nick... you are very fortunate that I never get up to the Philly area... otherwise, I'd have catnapped those handsome cats right out of your home!

Nina Hollander any time you want Sam you can have him, just kidding. He does bring lots of gifts home for us though.

Oh no, if I get these guys I want the pair of them!

Posted by Nina Hollander, Your Charlotte/Waxhaw/Fort Mill Area Realtor (RE/MAX Executive | Charlotte, NC) about 1 month ago

I warn you both have very sharp claws....it is funny they go to the scratching post almost to let us know they want to go out

Good morning Nick and Trudy. I think this is the best one I have ever seen of a before and after. Well done and I love the cats.

I love cats and you did a great job making them the focal point of your image.

Hi Nick and Trudy- Oh my gosh, that is the cutest picture!   I would be torn between letting them relax and going over to them and wanting to cuddle with them!

How adorable is that.  Those two remind me of my own two fur buddies, who use to sleep together.  Somehow, in the last couple years however, they've been less congenial.

OMG I love these two I have to post two of mine doing that:))ENdre

Nick & Trudy, like Nina, kitties are my favorite, and SUCH a cute photo.   My two kitties on occasion lay together, and is so precious.

Sheila Anderson thank you.

Dick Greenberg thank you, lots of rain due here so I guess we will be curling upwith the cats

Lynnea Miller thank you they rarely curl up together like this.

With Max when he rolls over you do want tobury your face in his fur Kathy Streib 

Myrl Jeffcoat I love that expression less congenial that sums these two up usually.

Nick & Trudy Vandekar, 610-203-4543 Max and Sam look very comfy in your photo.  Good job of Before and After.

It is amazing how using the "rotation" tool can make a lot of difference.  And the sharpening really makes the fur on those kitty pop.

Posted by Myrl Jeffcoat, Greater Sacramento Real Estate Agent (GreatWest Realty) about 1 month ago

Elyse Berman, PA, CRS they do know how to relax

Myrl Jeffcoat thank you, sometimes for different social media you need it one way, some the other.

Photography pets can often be challenging and you are the perfect problem solvers for most anything, anyone, and any situation!!!
