I thought of the expressive way animals handle waiting, and decided to go to the Sunday adoption day at PetSmart. The lighting was flat everywhere, but I still tried shots of bored dogs, anxious puppies and frightened cats. The best of the lot was this kitten, who was showing just the right mix of boredom and annoyance at having to sit around in a cage all day.
Hand held, because there wasn't room for a tripod, and no flash because the animals were stressed enough without me flashing at them.

Or not. Nice expression on the cat - your title becomes believable. Good exposure - hard on very white fur.

Don't like the frame. Not letting that influence my grading of the image.
Good exposure for all whites!
