Now that's a relaxed looking cat! Bet you wish you could the close-ups you have managed with your other cats pics Karen :-) (safley naturally). Nice picture and looks nicely un-zoo like too! Good to see a fellow Aussie posting. The title gave you away immediately :-)

Thanks for your kind comments Graham :-) It is nice to find other Aussies! I am itching to get some more lenses to play with, but I am trying to be sensible and learn how to use the camera and take photos first :( I would have loved a good zoom lense for this guy!

LOL - I'm from the U.S. (Ohio) and never heard that slang before...I'm stealing it! :) Too funny.
This is a wonderful photo, Karen. What a relaxed kitty! Great capture! #2085231

Thanks so much Pat and Joy :) I hadnt realised the title would attract so much interest! VBG #2085251

Hi Karen, Australians would be attracted to the title, the phrase "flat out like a lizard drinking" means we are in a hurry, I often use it about myself .

Fantastic capture of the relaxed Cat, Karen! I think you've done a remarkable job with this candid image! Nice work indeed!!! #2104979

Thank you Darryl :) It was one of the first warm days we had for a while so I think he was taking the opportunity to soak up some rays. #2105006
