He is beautiful Frank. Well taken, well processed, with good portrait framing. I love that you've included the bottom of the paw on the right side, which somehow makes him seem more vulnerable and more like the kitty who lives in your house. But the real power here is the expression in those eyes, a wistful resignation to his circumstances. It reminds me of pictures of people kept behind fences, a deep sorrow that accompanies a loss of freedom.

Everything Minnie said Frank !!! Absolutely adorable ... as long as he's on one side and I'm on the other. His expression has a lot to say in this image. The eyes ... can't say enough about them.
