    What I like is when people buy expensive pet beds and fancy cushions and the cat either curls up in a box or is splayed out on the floor like road kill. Hint: Cats have built in upholstery. They don't need more padding.

    I have a pic where my cat is spread out on the floor in front of my Z10, front paws and legs fully extended. Too bad I can't share a pic at this time.

    Hello Marshall,

    I have seen your cats in your first post, now they have disappeared, but in the second post are visible.

    Otherwise, thank you for the very nice pics of the cats,
