A shot of my 2 cats, Max and Lily, doing what they do best. Not really much I can say about them other than like most cats, they sleep 18-20 hours per day. Lily, the cat in the front, loves to just lie there on her back and enjoy the sun streaming in from outside. Max doesn't like anyone getting near his belly, so he tends to lie on his side. Although not always the best of friends, while sleeping Max tolerates Lily as much as he can. She is only 6 years old, while he is 14 so he prefers to just be alone while she likes to play. Cropped and adjusted levels.

Oooohhhh, this makes me feel like putting on some nice and warm pyjamas and cuddle up too! You have some pretty cats, and they seem to have a lovely life! You might want to try to take a picture of Lily alone - her expression is fantastic.

Quels beaux monous....jolie pose pour la photographe...

I am not by any means imaginable a cat fan. This photo is possibly my favorite cat photo I have ever seen. They are positioned perfectly and are quite cute. The sharpness is crea nad there is so much detail. The light is great and the furniture even seems to match the cats fur.
The translucence in lily's ears is just gret. Her face appears very human as she sleeps.

whoa they both are really cute.... and they both have a different style :-))))

Paula, this is awesome... I really like the different hues of beige, topped off by the sun through Lily's ears... and her expression is really priceless. This is worth more than 2 points really...

He oui, toujours un bonheur de saisir des moments aussi beaux, c'est aussi une position qu'adore ma chatte noire.

Your cats look adorable! Especially Lily. This is one of the nicest cat photos I've ever seen. Very nice composition too. Thanks for sharing..

Magnifique photo !
Les tons sont très délicats et la lumière très bien ajustée. On se croierait au paradis ... !

I never did comment on this one - and its one of my favorites! The rolls of fur and fat on the front cat is so funny. They look so peaceful. The photo has good depth and great light - the natural light makes them glow! Wonderful capture!

You have exquisite cats Paula - I loved the languid feel of the snap. Since I am getting to know more of cat's nature - I think the picture is depicting well the lazy feline nature. Good colours - good composition and yes again a beautiful pair of cats :-))

Nice capture of these cats. I like seeing that they like strange position to sleep. I always find that there definition of comfort is far from we will define it. Your cats are really beautiful.
