Fitting Perfectly. Our 8 kilo (17lb) tomcat Bram always found a space to take a nap.

Not the greatest person for capturing humor, but here are three shots from my iPhone 7 to keep the posts coming.

Great images everyone. Hard time picking between Bart's smiley face, Titia's cat, and Jacquot's cellphone user. All hilarious. After many viewings and much thought the award goes to Jacquot. His image was funny on many different levels. A superb point & shoot moment.

Congratulations Jacquot! Looking forward to competition #125. Thanks everyone for some funny moments.
