Cats sure know how to relax, and you sure know how to capture them, Rod. Looks like you got his personality in this portrait. #8721436

We inherited a bunch of cats that were abandoned and my wife just couldn't let them stray.They really do all have strong personalities. #8724281

Terrific capture of this relaxed kitty, Rod. Over the past 15 years, I've taken in 6 neighborhood strays, so I understand why your wife didn't want to let them go. All my kitties are spayed or neutered & vaccinated, and of course they're all spoiled rotten!! #8724725
