    When I saw the crossed paws I grabbed the nearest camera, which happened to be the E-PL1 with the Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 lens on it.

    I shoot in both raw and jpeg and this is a slight crop and sized down image taken in my laundry room with the blinds shut - bright light coming through them.

    The very slight squint in the eyes makes it purrfect!

    Thank you, Narnian

    Louie is a master of looking the other way, so he wants me to know that he's doing me a favor by looking at me.

    Thank you, Colin.

    Louie has been "under the weather" for a long time (cardiomyopathy and asthma) so I'm grateful for any picture that makes him look good, since he's lost quite a bit of weight.

    Hi Isabel, Just got back from from Hong Kong with the grand kids and brought back a bad cough. I hope it does not end up with a chest infection like I had last Oct. 15 C is just too cold for this old man!
    Great shots of the cat - the eyes are superbly captured.

    Thank you, Ric....

    Grandkids and illness just seem to go together. They pick things up from school.

    I managed to return from the visit with our twin grand toddlers unscathed, but my husband got a cold, just a couple of weeks after he had finished with one.

    Hope yours clears up quickly.
