It's the cat we adopted on Christmas. It came to our house beaten up and bleeding. It was half the weight it should have been and was really a sad sight. She had almost no trust for people but she's doing much better now and doesn't bite or attack nearly as often.

Man, you healed a messed up cat and gained her trust, that's awesome!

You can do the same with yourself and your relationships with people. It may not seem easy at first, but communicating calmly and clearly will help you a great deal, even with the ladies. Good luck, brother.

If you have any questions for me that aren't supposed to end up under everyone's eyes, send me a PM.

Love this one as well. I like that the area around the kitty is similar, yet he/she still stands out. Excellent focus and composition!

This is beautiful. I love the shallow DOF and the natural setting. Very nice!

Great cat photo, I love the natural setting very unique for this challenge. You mentioned that she bites and scratches, I adopted a kitty with the same problem and found that "time outs" in the bathroom did the trick, he wanted to be with me more than he wanted to misbehave. I just thought I would mention it to you. PM me if you want more info.

great looking kitty, whites are little hot, but I like the shallow DOF.

wonderful DOF and sense of place, composition a little tight on the left, very strong entry.

Real nice colors. I also like the capture and pose, something different than a head on shot

I like the composition. Shallow depth of field on back of cat I fould a little distracting.

Very nice, it seems like the front legs should be in focus, though.

Absolutely perfect pose, colors, focus, composition. This may not win because it doesn't have that slap you in the face impact that works well here, but this is technically and artistically the best shot I have seen so far in this challenge.
