Meet one of the neibourhood cats: most of my neighbours have had cats, but I honestly don't think they were good owners because they didn't really care for their pets. I even know of some that didn't allow their cats to stay indoor.
So the poor sweet things spent their days in and out of gardens and across streets, resulting in all of them being eventually hit by a car and dying.

This smart lady, who's well cared for and whose name I don't know, is the only one that has never crossed the street.
She's well fed, very intelligent, rather confident and affectionate, as I find her in my garden quite often.

In the revamp I switched to a square cropping and enhanced the warm tones of the picture.

The first word that came to my mind when I saw this picture was, "WOW! That's a GORGEOUS cat!" :aww: This picture is so finely tuned and the epitome of a purr-fect cat. The focus draws attention to your lovely subject, and the cat's pose show's a bit of it's personality! :) The green plant in the background adds that perfect touch of a different color that's needed there in that space (since you didn't fill the whole picture with the cat) and the colors are beautiful! :D

So, that's pretty much all I have to say. I'm just filling up the extra words now :XD:

Nice photo! Beautiful cat!:D She really reminds me of a homeless cat that lives in town (Aalesund) that I call Sofie. It is such a shame that so many people don't take care of their cats. I have even had people get angry with me for feeding cats without homes, (seriously some have said it is against the law, (which it isn't). It's hard to understand people sometimes... I feel so sorry for all the cats that are homeless, lacking food and shelter. (Sofie at least has some company by her pack.) Happy to know that this cat has a good home! :D

I have a cat that come through our yard a lot. She is affectionate and smart. She looks both ways before she crosses a street, and she has been around our house for at least 12 years. She has to be a good hunter! Nobody in our neighborhood owns her
