Tis one is a finalist for Cutie of the Year! Superb image. Well done on all the awards yesterday Lillian, all richly deserved. If you get many more you will have to move to a bigger place to make room for the huge trophy cabinet!

A rather smaller wild cat today Lillian, a real raft of awards yesterday, well done. This wee puusy is by no means in the shade from his larger cousin, the ears are marvellous.

What a gorgeous Animal Lillian, and so very well captured. You should compile a Photo Book for the Whf, and maybe even produce Post Cards from your wonderful pictures.

Despite being considerably smaller than yesterday's 'cousin', this is no less impressive, Lillian. An innocence to his features that the lion could never have.
