That's a very lifelike cat - nice picture!

On a different note: austerity was the reason for the word silhouette coming to be used the way it is... can't think there must be a karmic connection to the previous posts on your blog.... very sobering!

Very clever. At first I thought you caught a cat about to attack! Wonderful theme shot. I forgot. Again. About theme day. Mea culpa!

Perfect photo as we get closer to Halloween, which I know, is an American holiday, but I see shades of it around Europe :-).

I have learned from this - the value of keeping it simple...! Makes for a perfect theme day photograph.

Looks like a real bewitching cat. Very neat. I, of course, forgot about theme day. MB

The classic 'Cat on a Hot Tin Roof' came to mind JM, brilliant shot for the theme.
