This is Snowy!

Shot with a white wall as a background with Sigma 500 DG flash mounted on the camera bounced backwards and 45 degrees up. she got bored soon so I was lucky.

Snowy is a rescued cat that became a member of the family 2 years ago on 28 of Feb 2011. We were told that she should be one year old that time. She had a severe condition with her ovaries full of liquid. She was desexed then taken care and passed to a foster mom before ending up with us. Many thanks to the foster mom. I heard she's missing her. I guess she was abused as she still shows some signs of fear and she does not usually sit to be pet. She seems to be happy now and she is half outdoors half indoors cat.

Here she is couple of days after she joined our family

Excellent focus and well composed; One of the best entries, while the light on the cat is great, still the background is a bit too dark
