My big, silly “cat” , Strider, enjoying the afternoon sun in an empty box. I provided the full view also, so you can get the full effect of His Hugeness LOL!
Strider was a feral kitten rescued by us several years ago (he’s now 9).

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.

    Thats the quintessential cat look in the sun (and slightly smug, too)! I love this, and watch cats and my pooches to become as grounded and in the now as they, with better equanimity. This makes an eloquent statement about our differences!

  • So true. Thanks, Jan!!

    (That’s). See? Would a cat bother to edit a typo?

  • Are you kidding!!! Mine won’t even bother to move from in front of my computer screen!!!!!!
