The cats are demanding equal time, so here's Higgins, our Minister of Comfort.

While stumbling to the bathroom in the wee hours one morning, I glanced in our still-lit living room and saw our cat Higgins sprawled on the couch; his pure pleasure was just about palpable. I finished my business as quickly as I could, all the while wondering if he'd still be in such a position once I retrieved my camera and came back in the room. He was, and I was happy.

I thought he looked so comfortable, and his coat contrasted wildly with the more subdued colors of the fabric.

Oh Kimberley, this is really adorable, you have captured him just perfect, you can see that he comes from a peaceful home just by the way he's sprawled out on the couch.
The contrasting colours are excellent, well done and great work.

How can one prevent from smiling when seeing such a scene ?...
We should inspire from cats when we have to relax, they do know how to do !

Very good pic, although I think you could have framed it a bit larger.

Ohhhhhhh, so cute :) The background is really good for that photo, and although that cat is centered, it's so great.

excellent shot, and what a great title! I have a cat that looks a lot like yours. In addition to being an expert at napping, he is the Minister of Ticking my Wife Off, as he is constantly in trouble with her.

It is ohter picture too cute!! The lazy B/W cat is very good in this color sofa!
