Shadow Shot Sunday


Thomas likes to hide amongst the shadows and blend in with the porch railing for optimal hunting at the bird bath in the flower bed. We're pretty sure most of the birds know he's there and torment him on purpose, as his attempt-to-catch ratio isn't too high. He's not deterred though, and spends quite some time hunkered down in the sun half snoozing, half watching.

  2. Funny, I was just thinking the same thing as Sweet Repose! Thomas does indeed look like he's retired!! Terrific shadow shot of the gentleman! Hope you had a lovely Christmas and here's wishing you and yours a very Happy New Year! Enjoy!

  3. Beautiful shot! My cat loves to sit in the sunshine too and the birds aren't afraid of him either. The birds do flee from me even though I feed them.

  4. The kitty looks winsome as it enjoys the sun. The pupils closed and the eyelids offer protection. Not blinded by the light but luxuriating in the heat, the cat ear is apparent on the shadow. What a fine looking feline!

  7. I don't have a lot in common with cats, but agree with Repose and Sylvia. I'd say he's retired - like me!

    Cheers!

  8. Cute Thomas! Try as he does to blend in, he kind of is fairly obvious. Funny that the birds torment him. I'm sure he secretly enjoys the attention :)

  15. Nice pattern of sunlight and shadow, and an adorably sleepy-looking cat.

  16. Methinks Thomas is too well fed to bother chasing mere birds. I don't think I've seen a more contented cat!
