Thank you everyone for your kind comments. Curiousity finally made this cat jump up on the posing table so I could take her picture. I spent the previous hour photographing rabbits. She finally had to see what was going on. I was able to get two shots off before she had enough! She sat down looked right at me and said .... here's you chance, don't blow it! LOL

Thank you everyone for your kind words and support. I appreciate you taking the time to comment. For those of you who asked ... I photographed this cat using a strobe/softbox on seamless paper. PS work as follows: saturated the eyes to bring them out, selectively desaturated other areas, played around with levels/curves/dodging to really whiten the background and fade her into it, then applied soft filters.
