Laura E. Swan level-classic 8/27/2009 12:36:55 AM

Well, she's looking pretty darned mellow. She must have already had her cake and ice cream, too! Now she is just CHILLIN'!


Great Job, Chris!

Douglas Perry level-classic 8/28/2009 3:38:58 AM

Had to wake her up to party? #7894902

Chris Ebben level-classic 8/28/2009 3:54:07 AM

It was very easy to wake her, we just walked past with the parcel of prawns. She has has a lovely couple of days. You have no idea how much she knows & how much she helped Tony after his accident, I sometimes don't think he would have made it with out her constant care & watching him. She was the one who got him out of bed everyday & walking around. I better shut-up now....... #7894923

Tammy Scott level-classic 8/29/2009 4:43:23 AM

Chris Ebben level-classic 9/2/2009 11:37:49 PM

Thanks a lot Darlene & yes, she can certainly tell you what she wants, especially prawns. She sits beside the kettle & waits & if you give her the wrong thing, she just looks the other way & waits. #7911171

Kody is beautiful Chris - you are both very deserving of this Editor's Pic #8008623

Chris Ebben 10/5/2009 4:06:02 AM

Well thanks a lot for your thoughts on this one. I can't begin to tell you how pleased I am that this one got a EP. Kody is having so much fun helping clear up after the surprise wedding. Actually, she was on quality control before it started.... some-one has to test the prawns. #8009123

Graham Robards level-classic 12/18/2009 8:27:16 PM

LOL some-one had to test the prawns. I think it is great and I hope Kody had a lovely birthday! ~Pat #8231980

Thanks a lot Pat. Would you believe it, she's at it again, testing for Xmas. #8232083

Thanks a lot, I can't begin to tell you how happy I was this one got a EP. I told her about it & I'm sure she's pleased too. #8265153

Patrick Rouzes level-classic 5/4/2012 8:25:44 AM

Sounds like this beautiful cat has a wonderful life, Chris! Love the eyes, pose, clarity & comp! VEry well done! #10122430

Chris Ebben level-classic 5/4/2012 3:25:21 PM

Thanks so much Patrick. At present we are spending a week away in the caravan with her, taking her for walks & giving her treats, prawns. Kody will be 19 this August. #10123075

Wm Nosal 5/5/2012 2:06:42 PM

Great Shot, Chris!
and A Belated HAPPY BIRTHDAY Kody! #10125105

Mary K. Robison 5/6/2012 12:31:44 AM

Almost 19??
Chris, I'm coming over to your house with Riley, age 11, who needs to learn first-hand the secret of aging well, and for so long. Kody looks SO good in this capture!
Kody deserves every prawn (and Whiting fillet) she gets for taking such good care of Tony after his accident.
And "they" (all the dog people) say cats are too aloof and lacking in affection...Hah! #10125648

Chris Ebben 5/6/2012 3:44:16 AM

Thank you both so much, form both Kody & I. If I could only show you how much Kody looks after Tony when he isn't well, she doesn't lack affection. You should have seen her protecting him when the ambos came to take him to hospital. #10125697

Stefania Barbier level-classic 5/7/2012 3:51:17 AM

BEAUTIFUL! #10127206

Patrick Rouzes level-classic 6/5/2012 6:26:49 PM

WOW, Chris, love the eyes, tones, detail, clarity & pose! Exceptionally captured , my friend!
Happy Birthday, Kody!

Going to your house for my birthday!

Chris Ebben level-classic 6/6/2012 3:30:02 AM

Thank you both for the lovely comments. It won't be all that long to her next birthday, 11 weeks, have to make sure there is plenty of prawns & fresh fish. #10170173

Connie J. Bagot 8/27/2012 6:19:33 AM

She is very beautiful, especially her eyes, and I love the way you caught her looking at you----so VERY "cat." #10292221
