I wasn't going to upload any thing else until after the weekend, but after a long day of working outside in the yard, thought it might be nice to kick back and work on the computer.

We now have 4 cats that have made this the place for "dining" out! If this current trend continues I think I will have to get a discount card for the local feed store.

We have named this one Scrapper because he showed up with nicks and cuts all over his face.

I have probably broken some "rules" with this composition, but I like it.

"Y'all" have a really good weekend. All C&C most welcome.

A nicely coloured cat. You have captured his expression beautifully, and the border looks fine to me. It doesn't take my attention from the subject, so it can't be too bad.

I love everything about this - the angle, crop, composition, the emphasis on those green eyes. Keep breaking the rules, that's what they are there for.
There are cat-people and non-cat-people, and cats can tell them apart. Bear in mind that Scrapper probably has a few other well-trained households, you may get a discount card from your pet-food store, but loyalty cards don't work the same with cats!
