What a beautiful image! Everything about it is so well done. And the kitten is absolutely adorable! #2931482

Thank you Janine, Teresa and Melissa! I appreciate your kind words. You wouldn't believe what my cat brought me for a present this morning...a bird. How sweet that she was able to help control that population of annoying creatures! Nothing worse than hearing constant twittering from these carriers of West Nile and the Bird flu! What a wonderful gift to have a cat...especially one that brings me such wonderful gifts! :) #2933120

Melissa G. Meiselman July 20, 2006

Just happened to open this image once again because I liked it as loved it the first time. I am amazed as I read the comments, about what ensued. Really petty and small minded!!! The first time I have seen this type of thing on BP!!!!

I have three parrots and a cat and they are the best of friends. I also have had dogs and cats, and they lived in harmony. Actually, people are the problem, here, not this wonderful kitten!!!!!!! #3056354

Sam Britt July 26, 2006

Congratulations on your finalist, Jake. It's an adorable kitty portrait. I think cats are the absolute best companions! I own five former homeless kitties that I wouldn't trade for anything. I also help take care of a colony of feral cats. I have a dog too, but the cats are my purr-fect companions.
