You can tell a lot about a cat's mood by the way he carries his tail.

Thanks for all of the kind words of congrats for the Spotlight shot on Thursday!

*Going on a trip for a few days. Will not have much computer access. Catch up when I get back.

A fine picture of this cat with the tell-tale tail! :-) I'll have to notice this feature about the cats I encounter in the future. I missed your spotlight shot so went back and enjoyed it now. Congratulations.
