    Thanks.

    I like that picture.

    You both posted a bird, I posted a cat... throw them all together and what do we have? Actually, I doubt that Polar would do anything but flop down and watch them walk/fly around him.

    I guess the concept of solitude would vanish if we put them into one scene. Tension might be then a more appropriate term?

    Ah.. A box, a place of fascination and sleep for every cat. Very nice pic, I like how he's so relaxed just ploped just right there.

    This is a nice theme everyone - I'll have to see what I can come up with for this

    heh, yeah. Thanks. If you look close, you can see a sliver of his eyes, which are a very bright blue,

    Blue eyes are an uncommon thing in mature cats, so I was lead to believe...

    I was trying to find a picture with his blue eyes, but I'm struggling to find one. Funny how we sometimes forget to take a picture of the things we see a lot! I'll try to get one tomorrow when there is a good light source.

    Masters of Solitude

    Cats are the true masters of solitude. They seem at times so aloof to their surrounding, especially when trying to find the right blade of grass for a little nibble. This was my sweet cat Kitty Girl, an Apple Head Siamese with sky blue eyes.

    Those blues are quite startling when you first see them. They also seem very intense when they look at you with those. This particular cat had a way staring people down. Cats tend to look away, but this one just challenged everybody.

    Yeah, they are pretty striking. I managed to snap a couple of quick photos a few minutes ago.

    What a coincidence Mine I called like this because it was closest to what the previous owner had called her (really nasty).
