Although I do prefer dogs, I like cats and find them very interesting. They can be affectionate but are also quite independent. They are definitely lower maintenance than dogs but then again we do have two Great Danes so... Anyway, when I was at a friend's place I spotted this majestic fellow sitting on the deck surveying his kingdom. He was gracious enough to let me take his picture and even did some posing. I like how he stands out against the softness of the background.
