Default You've been Sphynx'd

House sitting this week for my brother-in-law and his wife, they have a Sphynx cat which doesn't have good looks high on it's list but it is an amazing cat that loves to cuddle and play.

this is one of the best pet photos i have seen. i really like the style in this shot and i think you captured the little sphynx at a good moment, stepping down to the lower step with her looking back at you.

With a picture that good... I would look for special paper to print it on... make a 5 X 7, mount and put a simle frame on it... and leave it on the table... your brother-in-law and his wife will love you for life... Again, very good shot! Keep an eye on that cat and have your camera around.

All the best.

I agree, weird looking cat, but you've, err, "humanized" him...

Thanks for the comments! I was able to get her to pose for me because she was just so willing and (2), she does what I say and lastly because I kept throwing a little ball up on that step she's on. She couldn't resist running up there to bat ball back down to me.
