    Persistence pays. Congrats on a fine photo and a 4th place finish in a competitive field.

    ysal: Thanks. I wondered who it was that gave me a number 1. I saw her asleep on the bed and set up the tripod. All morning I sneaked in and out of the bedroom snapping each time and finally got this one . She is 16 this year so it will be a lovely memory of her for me.

Thank you to all who made such encouraging comments

    I feel like I could reach in and stroke the fur. Very inviting scene.

    That is one very contented cat! Lovely portrait, with great detail and exposure. I can almost feel the warmth of the sun.

    Ambaker: You were following the discussion in the forum at the beginning when Steve explained what was OK. I quote

"On the other hand the gerund form of a verb ending in "-ing" can serve the function of a noun by giving a name to an action, e.g., bathing. That would be acceptable for the challenge. "

    I think this is the perfect interpretation of the challenge, great shot too.

    I like the subject, lighting and low key effect. A favorite.

    It is shots like this that really makes me think the quality in these Challenges is really improving. Super control of light and shadow here. It would be so easy to lose details in the darkness and blow the highlights but you've nailed the exposure. Also fine presentation -- despite the eyes being closing and the almost dead centre placement of the eyes in the frame this one works (showing you can break all the rules and get a good result). (My no. 4 but I'd be surprised if you end up anywhere other than in the top 5 - really a nice shot.)

the creamy blanket have given a lovely fill light bringing out the best features of the cat
