It is due to the unruly dog state of being that I asked the cats to help me out this week for our theme of "leading lines." Someday we will get to the groomer again.
Whenever I set up a photo session, or later in post processing, I am always analyzing where my eye goes first in terms of viewing the photo.
It's still a cute photo, and really shows the personality of our cat, Matty, but let's look at other examples.
The following photos were taken around 7:00 - 7:30 p.m. (sunset time) near my studio. Our cat, Barney, was keen to help out with this week's experiment, and unlike his usual self, most cooperative. Barney is the cat that arrived here one spring day and never left. We were his choice. He is a bit ruff and tumble, so I can understand why he might have been "put out" of the house, but we are pretty easy going about ruff and tumble cats, and Barney has decided he likes being a house cat. I do have him trained to stop what he is doing if he hears his name in a certain tone of voice, which is helpful to the overall peace among our cats in house.
Here's another one, different location. I let Barney pick the locale, and he decided a drink was in order for the evening, so he pawed himself up to the bar.
I think I will make a hanging canvas of this image for my pet wall in our family room.

Believe it or not, we have a snow storm headed our way for Friday night into Saturday morning. Oh joy!
