    This is our newest addition to the family. Joey, is a Flame Point Siamese and just so full of personality. I wish would have had more time to set and shoot this but the day was ending and a 365 shot had to be made.

    Your title made me think of animal rescue. Heh.

    Very nice photos. I love white-on-white. It always seems so clean and fresh.

    The third photo is my favorite though. I love the symmetry of the cat's eyes, as well as the placement o its paw on the string. The focus is spot on as well; crisp.

    The second one has a really nice composition to it as well, but it does seem to be a little out-of focus. It looks like the cat moved during a long shutter speed and caused motion blur, maybe?

    Thanks for the comments... The second one has been softened in pp... I was going for an "fluffy soft" look.

    Very nice. I agree with Texas' comments, and will add that I'd prefer to see them opened up slightly as in both #2 and 3, the RH edge is cropping bits (ear tip, paw). You have however nailed the exposure which is tough to do. Good job.

    Guess I should have put the disclaimer "NO Kittens were hurt during the making of this shot".

    Half of me expected a cat on fire and the other half a cut on fire through pp.

    I'm glad neither were the case :)

    I think that is an adorable shot, but if you are going for the soft look sharpen a base layer than add a duplicated layer in overlay with a very minimal gaussian blur. That makes for a sharp photo with a subtle glow to it :)

    I have a flame point siamese also :)

    I would have loved in the second if the cat was in more focus than the ball of yarn
    but they are all great! I also LOVE white on white.
