This picture came about in a funny way. This is Bebe, the oldest cat and she was sleeping curled up in my chair. I know that if you get close enough to a sleeping cat, they will sense, through their ears, that something has changed in the acoustics of the room, even without a sound being made and they will wake up. I wanted to see how close I could get. When I was about 8 inches over her ear she still hadn't moved, and I became fascinated with her ear, so I withdrew and got my Nikon with close up lens. She didn't wake up, even when I started taking photos. What you are seeing here is her ear, and part of her face near her eye, covered with a paw. Cats sleep with a paw over their eye a lot. Then one of her rear paws, with claws showing, and to the right, her nearly black tail. I guess I am in my abstract phase. Please click on the photo to see a lot more detail.
