Nice shot. I do find the shadowy bit to eh left distracting though and it keeps drawing my eye to it.

I love cats too, but I wouldn't let them into the bed [emoji33]

Thanks ...you say that is if I have a choice - you sure you've got a Cat ? :D

Thanks Snerks - didn't see any real point in PP'ing to that extent - especially given it's shot under the covers so I thought it wouldn't look right exposure adjusted to minimise those shadows. :)

I first looked at this on my phone and for some reason the internet was a bit slow, so it opened the picture from the top half. I saw ears and a pillow and thought there's a cute kitten face below, under a blanket. But no, there's a kitty who looks like she's drunk, found out sleeping in someone else's bed, with someone else's.. uh oh.. I could forgive that, but a flash, Jim? :( You need to start taking your pictures of the kitties with natural light at the daytime :) Gorgeous animal she is though! Very regal :)

Thanks M - unfortunately under the covers I didn't have the option of not using Flash - and I'd love to shoot my Moggies more in Natural Light - I'll tell them that you said they should pose more and sleep less :D
