Patricia Marroquin February 16, 2004

The clarity of your images is just incredible, Jean! The kitty's head is so clear I feel like I can reach out and touch him/her. Great photograph! #97881

Jean Papo February 16, 2004

Hello, Patricia, fellow night owl, my friend! Thank you. I was toying whether to put up this pic, or the one I'm uploading now. If you get these discussion threads, you be the judge. #380112

Carolyn M. Fletcher level-deluxe February 16, 2004

I agree with all the above. Excellent shot!!! #380226

Patricia A. Kuniega February 16, 2004

Oh this is a hoot! Knowing what you do to take their photos, this is typical cat style. So much more fun under the backdrop! lol Thanks for a needed laugh on Monday morning Jean!! #380230

AND YOU EXPECTED A CAT TO COOPERATE?????????????????? HOW CUTE!!!!!!!! #380514

Murry Grigsby February 16, 2004

Is this darn thing a blanket, trampoline or what? A backdrop? You gotta be kidding!! Cute shot Jean!! #380595

Stephen Zacker February 16, 2004

Leanne M.E. Boyd February 16, 2004

They are both so cute. I can't decide - I love the look on his face! #380878

Susan T. Parady February 16, 2004

Jean, both of these are great. I love them both. I think you should enter the second shot into the contest too. Both shots are really quite different when you take into consideration the cat's expression. (Just my two cents). I really love the bent ears.

Patricia Marroquin February 16, 2004

Jean, I agree. You've got to enter Mutiny too. It's precious! What an expression! :-) #381185

Kathy Hussey February 16, 2004

no help from your subject? I think he/she did you a favor : ) Beautiful shots, both of them... #381702

Mary K. Robison February 18, 2004

Both photos are great, Jean. (The first one appeals most to me because today I'm in the mood for vulnerable vs annoyed.)
I agree with Pat's original comment ~ your clarity sets the standard for all of us! Always outstanding! #385577
