My four favorites ended up 25th, 54th, 64th and 116th! I thought this might be yours. There's that glimpse of a mystery.

Voted earlier coming back to comment.

The B&W tones are great. The juxtaposition of the two elements here makes an interesting visual commentary on life. The man in the backdrop has come down the stairs and has the has his hand to his head. That emotive gesture could be a sign of despair or an expression of tiredness (wiping the brow after being winded). Nonetheless he has undergone a 'decline' - climbing down the stairs. The cat on the other hand is in a relaxed state but also is in a decline. The cat's position lying on the car is facing on the decline. Perhaps the 'life' of the cat is on the decline as well with advanced years.

And how the cat stays there is a marvel of modern physics. Perfectly balanced photograph, between the ease of the cat and the unease of the human. Even the bits of light are perfectly balanced.

I'm torn between wanting to watch kitty slide of the roof, and figuring out why that man is holding his head....

The cat really is going to slide off but that sad human in the BG makes this image (thanks the title) even more intriguing and beguiling. Jagar-like PP too.

This really tells a story, a sad one at that.
