Oh, Minik you are the love of my life, I can't live without you! Let's just scoop up our CatNip toys and hit the road. I can't tell if you are a boy or a girl, but it just doesn't matter, I'm fixed, your fixed....let's scratch these idiot owners and be alone?
Oh Minik.... Will you??

hahahaha, excellent proposal !!!

Hi Linda,
ha ha ha ha ha ! You are too funny today. Only after Dickens marries Minik--- EXCELLENT shot here. Love the lighting and POV, ohhh to be a cat. TFS Julie

Hi Linda,
Funny title :)
Lovely portrait, excellent sharpness and light.
So, what's the name of this beauty-in-love with such wonderful golden eyes?!
PS: I just noticed in Juliet's critique - it's Dickens!

This HAD TO happen one day, Linda!
Moreover, it wouldn't be the first time that TrekLens results in a marriage...
But what will Tekir cat think of this proposal?
TFS & kind regards ;o)

hi linda.
awwwwwwwww. how cute.
fabulous clarity and composition.
perfect focus on the eyes.
if only the pics of minik were this good.

You may love this cat,but i think the love of your life will leave you for the price of a piece of fish!

This is priceless!
The title is very clever and the details, composition and lighting of the capture are superb.
Fine timing!

Boa tarde Linda
Great pose and capture. It looks really great, the note is very cool. A very funny moment...and a good and delicious portrait.
Um abrašo

LOL! The line "I'm fixed, you're fixed" gave me the laugh of the week. Love it! Haha ...

I only know of one person who proposed marriage from lying prone on the floor - he was drunk - but she said 'yes' so hey, I guess it works.

Nice sharp detail and good reflection on the tiles too ... would've loved to see the right paw in the frame as well as the left, but cats are notorious prima donas when it comes to posing!

Great pic ... love it!

Hello,this picture has superb image quality.The cat really seems to communicate.Greetings Otto.

Hello Linda!
What a sweet cat! Minik is a sweety, too!
Lovely eyes!
Excellent light, detail and clarity in your picture!
Best regards!

Hi Linda,
I think this cat would like you passed his declaration of love on Face book or Twitter. All girls have their site there, and they would find it so romantic! I am sure the message will be listen, his eyes are so luminous and intense, his coat so silky and his pose so inviting!
Hope they will be happy and have many, many children! :)

Forget that Minik cat with all it's toys,roses,remote controls,mobile phones,chocolate - what you want is a real cat like ME because I actually catch real mice and small birds and am not all fluffy and precious!!!!!

Nice cat shot Linda - very sharp on the eyes, great light too. Good to get the low POV as most animal shots seem to be taken from standing height - duh..


Ha ha! Love your note! Great shot with this lovely cat in a very appealing pose. Very sharp with wonderful natural light on both the cat and the floor in the foreground. Its eyes are captivating with nice reflected light. Minik would be a very lucky guy (or girl?) to get with this creature.

You get an award for this one Linda! It sure is great to see someone with a sense of humour. I love the light in this, and the eyes say it all! ps I see Minik is reading up possibly the bridal magazine!
Cheers, Dianne

Hi Linda & cute cat,

You made me laugh very much just before leaving my office.
I will tell your proposal to Minik.
But I must say that at the past Minik was a mother cat.
( http://catoftheday.com/archive/2003/May/11.html )
And one of her kitties (Tekir cat) is still with us.
Do you still want to Minik :-)

I must leave-go now. If not, I want to write more-other things.
Have a nice weekend with you & your owner
