"Purr"ient interest

Some people love and some people hate pictures of cats. I suppose if we considered and compared how strongly we feel about cat pictures and how strong different people's feelings are towards por_, I could have titled this image "Cat Por_". LOL.

These two Wegies are siblings, nearly three years old and just beginning to grow a winter coat. I hope I am not expoiting these three year olds too much here. They do get rabbit every day, something not every domestic feline gets...

Grotesque. I mean, they're naked and everything :-)

Actually, I think this is one of your best cat pics yet. I'd be tempted to go for a tighter crop round the cats, leaving the window frame out altogether. Then again, my cats wouldn't be seen dead on the saming climbing frame together. They start getting really miserable when they find the other one's on it...

I love rabbit. Wish I got rabbit every day. So do you actually prepare your own raw cat food?

Thank you Dennis. Yes, I cropped this tighter but did not like the lessened space around the cats. In reality, this is cropped about half way between getting rid of the window frame altogether and the full frame image. I rarely see these two together long enough to get an ymage but I had moved this tree to the sun, so it was all new to them.

Yes, I do feed my animals a raw food diet.

I dont feel passionate about cat pics one way or the other but I do like this one, definitely one of the best cat pics on the site, especially for the full frontal eye balling. Whassup pussycat? Meow eowwwwww eowwwww oooooo.

I like the background! I should. It took me weeks to strip and prepare the wall and 30 hours to hang the wallpaper in the room just a couple of months ago! ;-)

Thanks for the nice words about this image. I may post meore cat pictures too, as a way to avoid controversy. LOL

Dont know what Dennis is rambling on about. Naked? I can only assume he hasnt seen many naked cats (well, actually when thinking of it nor have I. But I have seen dogs in bare flesh. Nasty, nasty!). :-)

The light makes this good (and of course how they are positioned)!

Oh, there are hairless cats...

...and I have really wanted one for some time. Yes, I like these.

I don't usually like cat pictures, but this one is well composed and quite nice.

Excellent picture of cats (again)...everything here is just right...colors, and light especially...

Agree with Denis

Love EVERYTHING about this picture. The overtones and undertones...the stark white...and the beautiful creatures.
