Bojan Bencic 7/25/2008 7:51:00 AM

Fantastic shot, Terri. I can only imagine how difficult it was to get them all in the pose at the same time. Great job. #6229258

Donna Bedermann 7/25/2008 8:05:23 AM

Oh my goodness! what a great creative, cute shot! not only are they all sitting, but how did you ever get all of them to look at you? #6229328

Terri Beloit 7/25/2008 8:41:56 AM

Debbra, Gail, Dominick, Mary, Martie, Denise, Caryolyn, Bojan and Donna...thank you all for your very kind comments! This was a challenge, but with two extra sets of hands, to get these little ones all on the bench and a "squeakie" to try and get their interest, we pulled this off. I have several, but this is the best with the most giving me their attention! They were a blast, but a challenge to photograph! #6229469

Kathleen M. Rinker 7/25/2008 8:55:46 AM

Birthe Kirk Gawinski 8/27/2008 12:40:30 AM

congratulations!
this is a wonderful shot - I'm not too fond of cats (I have a cute dog myself ...) - but when they are small, they ARE adorable - and what an achievement to make them all pose like that at the same time - I have a hard time just making little Oskar, the dog sit quiet ;-)

Birthe #6373945

Carlton Ward 8/27/2008 7:46:26 AM

Congrats Terri, It is fun to try to figure out each ones personality from the photo. I see one that is quirky, another one is trouble, then high maintenance, the lover, the goes its own way, etc...
Fun capture - good work Terri,

Toni Riggs 8/27/2008 11:45:10 AM

This is the cutest thing I have seen in a awhile, congrats!!! How did you get them all to sit still? Did you catch them while they were all in deep sleep? That's the only time I can get my cat to do anything... pose him while he's fast asleep and snap the picture quick as he is waking up, lol! #6376728

Cyn D Valentine 8/27/2008 11:50:47 AM

Adorable Terri COngratulations!! #6376747

Janet Detota 8/27/2008 11:56:49 AM

Being one who takes lots of photos of cats, I can attest to how challenging it is sometimes. This is one outstanding capture, and I can't believe it only made it to a finalist!! Guess the judges don't realize how tough pet photography can be. #6376773

ADORABLE! and worth POTD, congrats #6379705

Terri Beloit 8/28/2008 9:12:07 AM

Wow...I'm overwhelmed with everyone's kind words about my kitten photo...and was shocked to see it as the POTD! It's my first, so a real treat for me! You are all very sweet to leave such nice comments...and I really appreciate it!

Ken...no I didn't super glue their butts to the bench, but not a bad idea if I ever get this chance again! We had them up off the ground on the bench used a little squeakie toy (a fish!) to keep their attention (or try!) focused in my direction!

Karol...hmm, not sure which one was the "cat in the hat" as I had a hard time keeping them together, let alone keeping track of who was who!

Carlton...great job in identifying their personalities...and you were probably pretty close with your analysis!

Again...taking the time to leave a comment on my photo...is something I truly appreciate...THANK YOU ALL!!! #6380895

Evy Johansen 8/28/2008 11:12:41 PM

Description

All six little kittens cooperated - for a short time - for this photo! The secret was the bench was off the ground, so they couldn't easily get down!
