Thanks, Pam. This is my daughter's 5 month old cat. He finally sat still long enough to grab this shot! The color was helped by the very late sunlight coming through the storm door. He was about 3 feet from the door. #674811

Thank you so much, Steven, Alan and Leanne!! When your subject cooperates with you, you can get a good shot!! He was also sleepy! BTW, this shot was not cropped at all in PS. This is the full frame as shot with the camera. #675632

Thanks for commenting, Judy. You made me smile! I agree Draven is a beautiful cat. My husband's nickname for him is, "Psycho Cat"! He can get a little wild, but he's still a kitten. #676705
