This is a rather silly photo of my cat. I called it "Cat in Headlights" because in America we have an expression called "Deer in Headlights", which occurs at night when you are driving and you cross a deer in the road, often they are so frighted they freeze. Plus the cat's eyes in my shot look bizarre to me sort of like an animals eyes reflecting in headlights.

The cat became very posessive of this disc and wouldn't give it back, so I took some shots of him. Also I liked the contrast of the red and the blue. The blue blankets he is laying on are little blankets I "borrowed without returning" from an airplane.

An interesting note; inside his ear on the left of the frame you can see a bit of his "tatoo". Yes in France, pets have tatoos in their ears. I think they are put there by vets after getting their vaccinations, plus it eleviates the problem of having to get tags for pets' collars.

He looks very surprised ! He like music ? Good shot.

A very interesting snapsnot Michele, he seems as you say very posessive over his CD, I like the suprised look on his face, also the reflection of the red on his coat.
Very interesting about the tatoo, thanks for sharing.
Good work.

Quite an unusual pet snapshot. I like it. Espcially that contrast between the red of the CD, the blue of the background and the grey of the cat's fur.

I love cats.
