Kevin!

By Lynx08  
Apparently cats don't like their tummy tickled but our Kevin doesn't seem to know that!
This was taken last week on a hot day when he was happy to just lie around relatively still for a few shots. I tried to get better light on his eye after the comments on my last cat pic. I think this one is slightly better.

Hi Leslie
Thanks for your mod, I had thought bout the tight crop and tried it but wasn't sure it was better but I didn't crop in the top to get his leg out, it looks good the way you've cropped it. I'm not sure about the glamour filter I think it causes his chin to look overexposed, I have lighten the original a little but not so much as to loose the definition on his chin.
Good input, thanks.

I think the long haired varieties like their tummys tickled, ours certainly does! Smile

nicely captured..not sure about the bg, find it slightly distracting

have had a go at a mod...a little soft blur and graduated tint

Not sure whether he is 'enjoying' it or just tolerating it. Smile

In a confrontation a cat will often lay on its back offering its vulnerable belly as a sign of submission to another more aggressive cat - it avoids an unnecessary fight.

Should the other cat take advantage of the exposed belly - a cowardly act - then all hell is likely to break loose.

For us our moggy's exposed tum is probably a sign of trust and friendship.

For my three cats touching tabby Boo's tum would get me a surprised indignant look, touching torty Tuffy's tum a little nip of the teeth on the fingers (skin not even dented) and ginger Twinkie - well, I never dared!

Enjoyed the picture! Smile
