Tommy and the Tractor
Tommy and the Tractor

Meet Tommy, my brother's cat and no, the tractor was not running when I snapped this shot - If it was, Tommy would be nothing more than a fast moving streak of spiked-out cat fur heading for the safety of the house pet door. Smart kitty...and a real ham for the camera. :)

Have a great Tuesday!

Wow, Val! Sensational setting and your lighting is even more so. This seems like it ought to be a book jacket cover. Immensely appealing.

How is it that all the animals you capture look like they can't wait to have their picture taken? I spy something, aim the camera, and they're gone before I can click the shutter!! :) Fantastic capture of Tommy AND the tractor, Val!!

We had 3 kitties, Val, and only one of them was like Tommy. Wanting to hang out with us and watch us do things. His name was "Lucky" and he was black and white. The smartest cat I ever saw. He loved to hang out with me as I'd garden. Digging holes along side his "mommy" who was digging holes, too! Lol...Often times he was such a brat trying to distract me from my yard work to vie for my attention. That is until he saw the lawn mower coming out of the garage! Hahahahaha! (BOLT!)

This photo of Tommy on the tractor brings back great memories and is so pretty, colorful and sweet.

I hope we see more of him soon!

-LOTW :D

Tommy is a perfect poser Val!! Lovely shot. The tractor looks familiar, we have the same one and soon we need to change the cutting blades over to the snow plow. I needed that reminder. ;)

What a cute little poser, Val! Amazing details in this image, and I especially like the position of his tail, following the bend on the tractor.
