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.
