Very cute kitty captured in a most original way, That design on the blanket rocks! The contrast is awsome. Let the kitty sleep...Do NOT DISTURB the kitty

Thanks everyone - glad you like it! And I appreciate your taking the time to say so. :-))) I actually took quite a few shots, from various angles (the cat being very cooperative, and not moving a muscle the whole time). This was the one I thought worked the best.

Already HAVE it, Patrick! Took this pic with my new 10D, which I ADORE. (I still use my Coolpix for macros though, until I can afford a macro lens for the Canon). Thanks for your thoughts, Patrick. ;-)

Mary-Ella,
Congratulations for a well deserved win. I'm impressed that your cat stayed in place -- they usually sense the presence of a camera and scram!
God Bless,
Greg
