Thanks so much everyone! These cats actually look pretty happy and content, I am happy to report. Some of them are quite old now. But it was a challenging place to shoot! #9806976

Love this...the colors are marvelous on this big guy, Rona - crisp, clear (great side light!) and the same could be said for that wonderful fur detail you managed so expertly to capture! Perfect placement of the eyes in between the diamond pattern, too...yep, I could see, all in all, how capturing them would be a challenge - you did a beautiful job! #9807880
