Like kids at Christmas, cats seem to prefer bags and boxes over what's inside. Cut the handles off a bag I had and left it on the floor - one of Thomas' favorite play things. Be kind. Poor Thomas never fares well in challenges...

Heh! Wait 'til Emma finds out that Thomas got a ribbon!

Congratulations, Deb, well shot. I love that expression!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Sorry I've been late in commenting on this...you captured a wonderful expression on Thomas' face! I bet right after the shutter click he turned and pounced the back of the bag. Looks like he's pumped up on catnip. He-he.

Just to let you know, I can relate to the challenge of getting a cat in just that right moment. You've commented on a couple of entries I've entered over the years. Here's a couple -->
