I guess if you can squeeze yourself into a planter box, and it’s cozy…why not?!! Even the little guy up top was getting settled in for a nice rest on a warm and comfortable afternoon.
Not much to expound on here, just another one of those lucky finds as I was out and about, making my way around the village. Either these cats were so accustomed to tourists, or they simply didn’t care, but even my movements at close range didn’t cause them to flinch. What a life!

I just came across your interesting gallery because this wonderful image caught my attention! Your POV on this idyllic scenery works excellently. I read your humorous note with great pleasure. Cats are fascinating creatures and you captured two of them very nicely!

Hello Jason ,
This line of jars on the stoned wall along the white stair was an excellent subject . With the little cat in the first one , it becomes an amazing capture .

Lors de notre dernier voyage en Italie, ma conjointe s'est fait un thème avec les chats omniprésents dans les paysages urbains. J'aime beaucoup ce cadrage vertical qui donne une belle répétition des pots. On dirait même que le chat sourit.

Now there is the cat that got the cream, the look of contentment on his face is really cool, which is surprising because if I was jammed into a plastic planter like this, I dont think I would share this expression. Very nice find to spot this guy relazing in the sun, and even better still that you got such a nice backdrop for it too with the nice marble staircase and the rising line of plant pots.
Perhaps the pot is filled with catnip, and this guy is just blissed out?
All the best

First of all my congratulations on your 200th post here. Another milestone on the long way of photography.
I like this amazing capture of the cat. My cat also loves to sleep in some boxes, holes and different unusual places. Funny scene indeed.

Well, from all of Portofino's amazing archi. details, you managed to find a one cat shy from the thousands of tourists squeeze there daily.
Nice taken from the POV, as the plant-pots beautifully decorating the stairs up.
Details are immaculate on the image.

First the orange planter box catch my from the thumbnail, I was thinking how nice they are alingn, then the title 'cat nap'?! I was thinking where is the cat than I saw not one but two guarding both ends:)

I like you continuation of the series.And in my opinion this one is even more captivating.The cat dozing in the flowerpot-simple,but so sweet and lovely.As I see stroll along the streets of Italian towns brings not only architectural highlights,but also some interesting scenes from the daily life of its "inhabitants":)
Brilliant shot Jason showing us a little bit different aspect of Portofino and its attractions.
Looks like you have today your round "anniversary"-200th shot.
My Best Congratulations to You!
I think I need to get down to work:)
Wish You all the best

Jason, cats are ridiculous subjects! This is a great shot; the planters form a nice line up the frame, which looks great in the vertical format, and the cats at both ends form bookmarks on the scene. Very pleasant image. Thanks.

nice the view of this charmy snapshot with the cat to be in the pot.I like the well chosen POV with the pots and the stairs to created depth and perspective in the image.I like the light and the colour management as the clarity of the image.

Also a picture that steals your heart.
It's cute, it's funny and it's timeless.
Picture has also a lots of depth and
great composition and light management.

i'm more of a dog person, but who could resist this pair of snoozers?! :)
the bottom one looks quite smug and pleased with himself. i guess i would be, too, if i could squeeze into a flower pot and soak up the sun :)
fun capture, jason ~ not the usual portofino shot for a change. and a sweet sense of humor to boot!

uno scatto bello e simpatico, mi piace il semicerchio creato dai vasi e dalla scala ed è simpatica l'inclusione del gatto, sembra avere anche un sorriso furbo e accattivante.

Hello dear friend
what a beautiful shot indeed
I liked the symmetry and the placement of
those pots but the greatest beauty is
the cat sitting with great pleasure
very humorous photo
have a nice time

Gidday dearest ADB
Hahaha the row of pots are beautiful, wonderful colours and great graphism. And they guide the eyes down the stairs to the kitty sitting back basking in the sun. Now that's the life. They talk about a dog's life, but this cat's life ain't bad wither. Excellent light, sharpness and perspective.
Thanks for sharing, have a great day

What a simple and pretty scene, a line of plant boxes the first and last of which are occupied by kitties. A lovely treat for cat lovers like me.
