So -- this was NOT the idea for the challenge. This was the idea for the challenge:

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/100000-104999/103142/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1088498.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/100000-104999/103142/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1088498.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Three blind mice, cutting off the tail. That's a knife back through there with the tail (my husband couldn't figure it out.)

There wasn't supposed to be a cat in the shot. I even locked up Moriarty before I started working on the shot, because I knew he'd be a problem.

But Cinders hardly ever causes problems during photo shoots. I thought I was safe. But when I started shooting, she started deciding she wanted the mice. Their tails were interesting!

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/100000-104999/103142/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1088497.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/100000-104999/103142/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1088497.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

(I liked this shot a lot, but the dof was a problem, and I thought it was more about the cat than the mice.)

Cinders was decidedly silly:

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/100000-104999/103142/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1088514.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/100000-104999/103142/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1088514.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

It still is kind of sad that no matter how hard I try, the shots that I imagine are never as interesting as the shots that the cats create. They're just better at design than I am. Hopefully they won't start taking pictures, too. They'll probably be better at that, as well. :)

Thanks for the comments!!

Love it! Cute idea and great execution. The mice even have reflections! My favorite in this challenge.

Brilliant! How on earth did you get the cat to cooperate?

Well played. That cat is going to be in for a surprise when it bites down :)

What a creative idea. I like the light on the wall, and everything is nice and sharp. But I found the reflection on the floor a bit distracting. Voted 7.

In my top three - absolutely love it, the creative idea, the personality of the radish mice and most of all the cat in that great setting!
