How do you get a cat to yawn? No, seriously, how do you get a cat to yawn? I haven't any idea, myself. I think the best you can do is to be ready with the camera, and if her highness deigns to give you a shot of those sharp feline canines, you shoot quickly and hope you're in focus. This image isn't quite perfect, but it captures a spontaneous moment that I couldn't duplicate if I sat with my camera all day hoping for it. I love the angle, looking right into the mouth of the beast... it's like being Daniel in the lion's den, and getting away with all your limbs intact.
