He is mr. Goodwill - all kindness and soft heart.
12 years ago I found him sick and almost dead, in a block of flats' basement, crying for mummy. As she was not around, I took the role..;-) Since then he is an equal member of the family.
Never bothers anybody if feels people are busy with their so very important human problems.
Stays quietly in his place untill they find more time and attention for him. Never loses his time hanging around and doing nothing - meanwhile keeps his appearance perfectly groomed, clean and tidy.
Sometimes even finds the dog to be a suitable partner to play with and practise some fitness for maintaining his body in good shape...well, to some certain extention of course... Because dogs are so noisy and naughty - just like little children. And he is matured and wise since he remembers himself... That is why his look is so soft, full of understanding and wisdom.
Meet him - the name is Rizhko! :-)

A well framed shot, Maria. The colours are excellent. You captured an interesting expression on Mr. Goodwill. Well done.

So you do have a cat too. Very cutr eportrait. Love it.
We won't see you anymore on TE??

Rizhko is a lovely cat, and your portrait does him justice. The frame is very effective, too. Great job!

Oh lovely capture of that beautiful cat - Mr. goodwill - I like his story and the nature you describe.

I can't help thinking of my best cat ever - Mr. Philip -
We where living in a city and near a road with heavy traffic which killed our first two cats - but not Philip - he learned to wait for the green light - no kidding.
But the sad thing was - two years after we moved on the countryside he got killed by a car.

Oh forgot the real story - He had the nature you describe - But once we should take care of a little kitten for some days - he's good will surely came on a test - be course that little fellow wasn’t aware of "polite behaviour" and Philip wasn’t used to naughty kittens - funny to watch then :-)

this is very well done. very smooth, it's good you didnt sharpen it too much. i like it.

The cropping is good which brings us to see his lovely eyes. Nice angle too. Well done.

Lovely Rizhko! Good closeup.

Thsi must be one of the priities potraits of a cat that i have seen. You captured Rizhko in a really lovely way. i like your close crop and the soft colours.

He does look like quite a character, Maria. I like the tight cropping around his sensibly tilted head, and the colors on his fur. Lovely note as well ;-)

What's nice here is that your very human desciption is well in accordance with Rizhko quiet and appeasing look. Your very good framing helps certainly to concentrate on his peaceful eyes. Very good portrait and nice story.

very good indeed.Beautifull crop,and clear image.Congratulations on this great photo and on your cat.I also Love them.

Lovely cat and very clear picture

You said it very well "full of understanding and wisdom". He realy looks it!

10/10 for face and his name, and for the color and angle.

LOL...Maria, you confused me! There is a person here on TL with username "Goodwill".

Beautiful capture of the cat...detail and sharp! TFS, Vandana

Such a beautiful cat. He truly does seem wise and kind. A wonderful capture. Well done.
