April Jarocka said...

What an adorable kitty. Not an easy angle of him either - I had to do a dog once looking down on him and he looked like his legs were 2 inches long and coming out of his chest. It worked out in the end, as has this superb picture. Lovely to hear from you again, sorry I haven't been blogging. Got so much work to do - I have to drag myself to the easel early in the morning instead of catch those extra 10 mins...which is HARD!!!

Dors said...

Thanks so much April. Oh I catch the extra 30 mins. LOL. It is hard to juggle all the things one wants to achieve. We could do with more hours in a day. :D
Good to see you.

Gwen Bell said...

Terrific pose and such a great attitude! Love your high contrast black and white. Really well done, Dors (as usual!).

Dors said...

Thank you so much Gwen. Appreciate your comment so much. :)

Gary Keimig said...

Bob is really a great looking cat. Wonderful job, Doreen.
He reminds me of a cat we had when my girls were young. Had asked for a male and didn't check when "he" came. The girls named him Buster and shortly after we discovered Buster was a Girl. The girls would not be persuaded to change "her" name so we had Buster the female cat. One day a few years later my youngest daughter opened the door to let her out and let it shut faster than the cat. Buster had a shortened tail by a couple of inches and I don't think that cat ever got along with Janet again. Janet could never understand why Buster liked Kim better.

Dors said...

Oh what a story Gary. Poor Buster.

Thanks for your nice comment.

L.Holm said...

He's spectacular, Dors!
Lynn and Gary will be over the moon with him :-D
Superb!!

Dors said...

So glad you like it.
