This is my dear chubbycat Strider. His favorite place for a snooze is in front of my computer screen with his head resting on the cabinet door. He was snoring so loudly that he didn’t hear the camera LOL!!!
(Strider was a feral kitten rescued from a local shelter in 2004.)

Being in my 60’s, I am a latecomer to photography. Yet I have found great satisfaction and pleasure in creating digital art from my photographs. Taking pictures was a hobby until surgery in 2001 left me disabled and gave me the opportunity to learn about digital art and photographic software. I’ve been selling my work online and through local galleries since 2009.

    I just adore this capture, what a charming guy he looks with plenty of character I bet!

  • Thank you! :))))) Yes, he is quite a character! A momma’s boy – so unlike any cat I’ve ever had. He follows me around the house and apparently whines and mopes for me when I’m gone! He also gets into the garbage, begs for table scraps, hides his toys under the carpet, and nuzzles my neck (while drooling)!!
