This is a portrait of a house cat from one of the Mornington Peninsula Wineries (25 July, 2009) who just sits around all day!

For the record, I’m a dog person and I’m allergic to cats but this cat was so well behaved and just sat so still I couldn’t help my self but photograph it! I love the study of b&w photography so here’s another one!
