      Thank you, Kate! I have to confess, I worked a while before I got the right exposure and composition, all the time harassing my poor cats. But I’m pleased with this one. Thank you for your comment!

  2. Oh, I love him too! He’s so sweet. I had a kitty named Leo once, but he ran away. Your Leo sure is beautiful!

      He is a gorgeous boy, Amy. And he’s also very funny! Tonkinese have amazing humor sense! Sorry your Leo ran away. My boys don’t have that option because they’re not allowed outside. But they don’t seem to mind.

      He would let you hug him, too, Weebs! He purrs all the time. A veritable kitty slut! And I haven’t talked about it in a while, but remember me talking about cooking for them and making a chicken stew for their meals? Leo has lost 4 pounds in about eight months. He’s now very slim and sleek. And he has a waist!

    Ha! When I saw this photo challenge earlier today, I wondered what you would do with it. This is quite a stunner – I love how the colors seem to meld together in a lovely balance. And then there are those eyes!! Gorgeous cat.

      Thank you, Mary. The boys were fairly patient with me this morning as I worked on this shot. I wanted to get the red rug in the background and just the right light and we tried several angles. After a while they got bored looking up, but Leo and I finally got it together! I was really happy with the color balance, too. A fun project! As always, I so appreciate your support, Mary.

      Thank you, Jennifer! It’s not necessarily an angle that I would shoot, but the challenge was fun to attempt. And Leo came through for me! He is pretty easy on the eyes!

  25. You’ve taken some great shots of your kitties, Cathy. Now I know what a cat looks like when he’s saying, “Cheeeeeeeeeese, hurry up, take the shot, I can only hold this cute and curious expression for so long!” I hope Leo got more chicken stew for being such a great model.

  28. Cathy what a lovely cat Leo is and you have capture his essence beautifully. He has lovely green eyes and his fur is the color of sand, I love cats. He is still quite young is he?

      Thank you, Athena! He is lovely – although fixated right now on a new food that we introduced and he begs for it all the time. But he’s a really sweet boy. He’s eight years old. This particular breed (Tonkinese) is very healthy and they retain a youthful aura for many years. They often live well into their late teens and for that, I’m grateful…
