If Galena, my female blue lynx Birman isn't fluffy in both mind and body then I don't know who is! She was a trooper and put up with me taking probably around 300+ shots to get this. She must weigh a half-pound more than before from all the treats I gave her!

Camera on tripod, used onboard flash which resulted in some redeye issues...how the hell do you deal with redeye in animals?! - and used remote trigger. Ambient light from my windows provided the backlight. Got some weird lightcasts on the wall behind her presumably from the flash bouncing off the glass coffeetable she's standing on.

Lighting on the left is nice, especially in the way it defines the individual cat hairs. Face isn't especially well lit and is slightly out of focus.
