Photographer's Statement:

I was sitting inside when my little sister yelled, “The cats are in our front yard again!” So I rushed outside to try to get a good picture for my photography class. The cat on the ground ran off but this one stayed in the tree long enough for me to get a nice shot. Even in the middle of winter this tree is healthy enough to provide a nice resting place for this adorable Maine Coone.
