...as visions of catnip sprinkled sugar plumbs danced in his head...

We just got done assembly a new Cat tower that Santa brought early for our cat Shnuk.  Overall, he has been a pretty good boy and an even better friend this year. Shnuk wishes you all a very merry Christmas.  

Shot this with the Canon G12 with lens zoomed out to 140mm.  Aperture priority mode (AV on the Canon), F4.5, ISO 80, -1 1/3 EV exposure compensation.  Spot Metering.  I set the camera to shoot in a 1:1 aspect ratio (square format) with in-camera B&W mode set.  Camera resting on arm rest of a chair.
