This is Poppy.  Poppy came to live with us about a year ago and its been non-stop fun since then.

Photography has some somewhat neglected as it has been insanely busy the last few months.  I am waaaay behind in editing photographs in addition to not having much time to get out with a camera.  But, you have to keep shooting, right?  My goal is to photograph something every day.  The vast majority of those images never make it off the camera and those that do, typically get deleted after they are downloaded.  But, some images surprise you.  They grab your attention for one reason or another and come to mean something to you.  That is how this image came to be… I walked up to the top of the stairs and found Poppy doing what cats do, relaxing in the sun.  She made a happy noise and posed which charmed me enough to capture a very cat-like moment.
