Wow!

I know that is an insufficient critique for a fabulouscpicture, but this is a wake up surprise and makes me blink and be so thankful that we abolished our initial rule, “don’t post cat-pictures” when OPF began, 12 years ago! Then I had been turned off by the Dpreview.com community practice of using cats whiskers as the premium test of the prowess of premium lenses that give “bragging rights”!

This picture shows how the cat, in human life, can be so integrated and part of the family experience to share in happiness, bonding, haughtiness and withdrawal!

Good thing you've changed your rules, Asher! There are never too many cat pictures, says Manu, co-star of this picture. Thanks for the kind words.

Antonio and Charlotte, thank you so much for your comments! Yes, Laura and Manu are quite inseparable. Too inseparable at times, if you ask the cat!
