Absolutely purrfect!

Eight playful little cuties I found in a street of Lisbon, Portugal.

Note: Many people tell me that, like in some of my other pics,
this image looks like a "pencil drawing". It is a photo, though.
The truth is that I always spend some time to edit my photos
to get a nice balance of details and different gray tones... It's
just more work for better results.

This is beautiful! I love cats so definite fav! This is a great photo and the greyscale adds to it. I really like how all the cats are very similar but have slightly diffrent Markings, especially on their foreheads.. I'm not quite sure what they are all in, but it's a unique place to photograph cats. It's really nice how each of them has a diffrent pose, some are staring right at you some finding somthing more inresting to look at, especially the one who' bending his/her head around. This photo shows many diffrent textures. You have the soft stripyness of the cats fur, and the metal of the cage(?) they are in. Then there is the wood they are relaxing on. Very interesting and beautiful photograph of some very beautiful creatures!

This should be in Photomanipulations. I think you're misleading people even though you do mention that they are edited. I don't think many people realize the extent to which it is edited, though, and it doesn't look like you answer comments to clarify.

I too thought this was a drawing. What an amazing photo I love the markings on their heads.

I've never seen cats with stripes on their fur so precise.

I think the owner should preserve this breed.
