7.65 - That's some coat she's got there. Love the clarity in the eyes. My main nit-pick is that the 'fore claw' is oof - which made me look closer at the rear and, ha - she's got that trophy well hooked. Very nice portrait.

What a stunning animal! Fur is so distinct, and he looks like he's posing. If he is, let me know how to make my cats pose!

Cats are hard! Your capture and presentation here are exceptional. What's your secret for getting cats to hold still, or at least look like they are?

He looks so proud! Very nice cat portrait - good use of light, nice backdrop which gives a base but blends nicely, and a really good pose.

He lay there, on his throne (cats don't sit, it is beneath them), and proudly displayed his latest kill. For him, it was a conquest, a trophy that cemented his name and legacy among all the Kings of old. For him, it was a testament to his cunning and strength and prowess. To him, it proved the status of his rulership and set him up for a regency unmatched.

To his subjects, however, secretly snickering behind his back, it was just the latest practical joke that their poor clueless "king" had succumed to. The bumbling fool! They spoke in whispers, Can't even tell a toy mouse from the real thing.

Thus the kingdom went on, with the puppet on the throne lost in self-congratulations while the real masters ran things from the shadows, as ever it had been.
