Post-Processing: Crop - adj contrast - usm       Extra Info: The only view from this room is though the patio doors. So they are my 'window' to the outside world. The cat does not like to stay in the snow for long. If I don't pay attention to his polite knock he will start meowing.

    Jade: The phrase teaching to such eggs comes to mind. You were wise to edit your comment - you live to see another day ;-)

    Jade: I'd figured out what your entries were so my missing the vote wouldn't have been any help to you LOL I can't print Loreen's response :-)

    So this is what he meant when he said he'd put the cat on ice! And here I thought he was a wise guy! (I saw your note about missing the voting - a likely story!!! Someone leaning on you? The Mrs. making you sweat over the cute dame comment? Tell her I know she knows I meant her!)

    Congrats, adorable shot.

    Congratulations - I think Tyler would be suitably impressed.

    Sorry about your cat John. I'm not a cat person but this one has a very special way about him. I'm guessing that would have been the same with yours.

    Congrats Mepo!

I just recently lost a black & white cat that was a master at this, he had more personality than any cat I ever owned. When I saw this made me feel very sad.

    I bet he doesn't like it in the snow for long...his bum must be freezing!!! Nicely caught. I think we can just about stretch to patio doors being windows ;-) . GL.

    Great detail on the cat - I love the expression

    Thank you all for your generous comments. I did try removing the background but it did not look as good (to me).
Happy to have made that well known grouch eagle 1 chuckle :-)
Elyod: I think you read his mind :-)
Phill99: Right on. After an excursion in the snow he wants to stay in, that is until the next day when he seems to forget how cold it is out there (minus 27c).
Tyler was abused and neglected when he was young but found himself a good owner all on his own by turning up day after day to get fed and warm. He now has a devoted owner and we get to babysit him every Christmas. Happy to see so many of you seem to like him as much as we do.

    Like this photo telling a story, nice pose and general composition. Good idea to leave only 2 sides of the window frame in. Background could have been a bit more discrete

    Clever creatures, cats; I get the sense of him saying, "Come on, lets get done on the first take, it's freezing out here!" Nicely focussed, In my TT.

    Hahaha - now this is n "fun" photo. Perfect. I like everything you did with this capture.

    What a cutie. Maybe a bit more cold tone would be better. Anyway, high in my favorites.

    I'm not usually a fan of cute animal pictures, but it's hard not to like this. Composition would be better if he were two inches to the left, but what are you gonna do - he's a cat.

    I like this! Good expression on the cat, and clearly looking through the window/door at where he would like to be. I wish the background could have been a little less busy.

    Very nice that you can see from the leg of the cat that there really is a window (apart from the frame left and under). Real fun.

    Cats are never happy! When they are out they want to be in. When they are in they want to be out. Good photo.

    Nice choice of subject and excellent pose. Just a tad sharper maybe and I'd be tempted to remove all the background clutter, but you've pretty much otherwise got this one nailed.

    Did you wave back? I had a cat that would do exactly that. Nice and sharp everywhere it needs to be, exposure looks good too.

    Excellent photo and so cute! How polite to knock first. Mine just demands straight away.

    It's a nice shot on theme -- just a bit towards underexposed.
