He has so obviously found the perfect spot -- just the right size and shape and in the sun, too. I assume he prefers a firm mattress :) Lovely capture, Katarina.

Cats absolutely love the perfect shape and size nest for sunbathing and sleeping, as witnessed here.

The textures, lighting, composition, tonality, DOF is wonderfully captured by your lens, Katrina. Good eyes and POV, as always. I suspect another win is on the horizon! Congratulations on your BP POTD!
