Bouncing light for fill

I have a very black kitty who happens to live at my house. She is quite difficult to photograph inside my home at night without using some kind of flash. Now how many of you have seen the "possessed kitty" look? You know...the green eyes that glow in the dark? You're laughing.

Well this precious kitty of mine finds it very easy to "hide" from my camera.  This is a shot I took tonight while she was playing with my leftover Valentine's day balloon. I swiveled the flash to bounce off of my metal fridge. This gave me a diffused light without blowing her out or "possessing" her eyes. I turned down the output of the flash as well to about -1.5.
