why not to tie 1D X with EF 600 to cat's neck next time?

(Or D7 with EF 300 -- you might get really cool pictures of birds in you neighborhood...)
Brilliant idea ...not at all absurd  ;D

+ 1 for me too, Dear Rienz
No, No, No---"  D7 with EF 300 "---Not for Pussy cat, But for the Big Tiger or the king of the jungle , Lion---We can get only the Run away people and small  animal, when our helper ( Tiger or Lion) are hungry.
Ha, Ha, Ha.
Nice to talk to you again.
Have a great Tuesday.

So, it could be a general recommendation for bird photographers with 7D + EF 300 in tropical countries:

If you walk through the jungle and suddenly see a Tiger (or Lion) with 1D X + EF 600 looking at you, stay still until he/she/it makes a picture, then run as fast as you can... :)
G7 | EOS M | 400D | 6D
EF: 50/1.8 II | 17-40 | 24-105 | 70-300DO / EF-S: 10-22 | 18-55 | 18-55 IS | Sigma 30/1.4 (old one) / EF-M: 11-22 | 18-55 | 22
I also own few Canon flashes, remotes, blends, bags, cases (including waterproof one) and even batteries! :)

Mini-softbox for on camera flash...

Tied with the "tripod" that has flexible legs and can supposedly wrap around a fence post or branch.  (The brand name has something to do with primates.)  Yeah, it might work with a smartphone attached, but not a dSLR of any size or brand.

Both of these things are in my private museum of stupidity--a box in our garage.

keep these they are super awesome for popping on a speedlight to mount on wierd things

I'll add another one - built in lens hoods.  Sure, they sound great until you have to send your lens to Canon to replace a dented one on your 400 f/5.6 for over $400.  Oh yeah, and then do it again a year later. 

For that price, I can get a huge carbon fiber (versus small metal) hood for my 300 f/2.8 IS II from B&H and put it on myself.
EOS 1D X, 5DIII, M + EF 24 f/1.4II, 50 f/1.2, 85 f/1.2II, 300 f/2.8 IS II || 16-35 f/4 IS, 24-70 f/2.8II, 70-200 f/2.8II || TS-E 17 f/4, 24 f/3.5II || M 22 f/2, 18-55 f/3.5-5.6 IS || 1.4x III, 2x III
