Hi Mujtaba,
Funny and cute! Hehehehe, nice quarters the cat found, maybe she can read? And a good capture of course, great composition, texture and colours... Well seen!
Pablo -

Hello Mujtaba,
I recognise the cats now buy them a nice couch or anything for them they won't use it, but leave an empty box or bag on the floor anfd they will play with it and sleep in them. Well seen

Hi Mujtaba,
Funny capture with nice colours and detail.

Hi Mujtaba,
lovely, I like your shot together with the wonderful story, you put a smile on my face, thank you very much.
My cat also enjoys to lie in carons. Cat's are the same all over the world, I think.
Thank you very much, bye bye

I want to mention the quality of your image.

Haha... the text explains it all... what better place to sleep and dream than a carton of milk, Mujtaba ? ;o).
Cats are intelligent creatures. This shot proves it! I love the low PoV you used, and the teriffic sharpness throughout. A beauty. TFS.
I also think Leon cropped it very well. A different approach ;o)

Lol ! What a clever cat :) Did she drank all milk before to sleep ? (I think she's a lady because this is a "3 colors hair".
I do appreciate the workshop too, the crop make this photo better.
Nice shot full of humor :)


Great square captured; round warm living, but sleeping beast in dead material; funny and artistic picture. A scene for a childrens film

Well captured Mujtaba, cats do seem to prefer the more unusual places to sleep. Nice sharp colours and good DOF,

Terrible. Perecte prerecording of this cat in the box. I enjoy this.

Hahaha ! Well seen ! I like it a lot ! Sometimes I think cats do have a very good life :-)

Good work !


Nicely observed Mujtaba.
Leon did a good WS too.
This could be the base for the "drink milk"-poster in the end-of-year-hunt... (Urdu version ;) )

H Mujtaba, what a good shot you captured of this stray cat! And your explicit note helps us understand the special moment: cat sleeping in box of Pure Milk :)

Very well seen. Cheers, Yan

Great image, what a coincidence that he's sleeping in a box with milk written on it, nicely captured..TFS..martha

looks like she drunk all the milk in the carton ...very well seen and captured , maybe I woulsd have cropped different here ..made a ws how I would present this shot ..

pts tmrw

Cats will sleep anywhere and anyhow! I wish I could! Good find Mugash, you caught her well.

Hi Mujtaba

Well seen! Excellent sharpness lighting framing & contrast. I like the subtle colours. Good work!

"pure milk"...... don't surprised me he feel good there!
great shot!
very well done!

ola Mujtaba!!
a foto esta engraçada!!
gosto da expressao do gato.
Bom trabalho!

Great shot. Nice composition, good color, and very sharp detail. Nice timing and eye to get this good shot. TFS

Hi Mujtaba! I guess he wants to be sure he's there when they refill the box! I love this shot too. :)

One teeny tiny thing - I think it would be good to consider cropping right at the top of the box.

Very nice shot! It is really a warm place to sleep! She found a good place.

Merry Christmas Mujtaba!

Hi Mujtaba

It is the most pleasant form for him,
him yes he knows what is for his sleep
Beautiful picture, beautiful pose.


Hi Mugush,

sweet capture. Bellissimo ( is super in Italian lenguage!) see ya

Quite a funny moment Mr. Khan. It looks like he had finished the box of pure milk and already enjoying his siesta. sharp image and good composition.

Thanks for your critique on the aquarium photo. Well seen. this is precious. Cat's seem to crawl into the funniest places to sleep. He looks quite happy and content.

Oh, this is so cute! Very good composition, clarity and colours. I also like Leon's workshop. Well observed, and well done.

What a nice picture of kitti's house. Great composition. Funny note. I like it,

Nice photo. I like the way the cats are. Well done

Hello. Good catch! Cute sleepy guy. It seems happy and relax.
Nice piece of work. Well done! :O)

lovely cat shot
nice capture
lighting ,colours and sharpness are spot on
Nice One
Dave R

PS like it's a milk carton box

Hello Mujtaba,
fantastic shot! What you wrote in the note made me laugh - what an increadible coincidence! Or the cat smelled out the milk there...? :-) The cat itself is in fabulous pose - so relaxed, almost happy (a dream about milky river...?) It looks like homeless vagabond. tfs


Your note is as good as your shot : it look's easy but it is not so easy.
Very nice composition.


Very good indeed. I really liked that.

What a sweet moment you caught. Nicely framed. I suppose that cat really likes milk. Maybe you could crop the right side just a bit more. That little bit of red distracts from the subject a little. Nice work!

oh man! cute cat... dirty, tired and forgotten. sweet photo

Hi Mujtaba, you have here realy a lovely image, this is a great shot. Thanks for share.

Hello Mujtaba!
Nice shot! and cat! Бездомная наверно.

A cat that reads Urdu! How remarkable, but I knew that already. I would have cropped to the top of the carton, but this is minor. I'm going to try a WS to see what this does. I hope you don't mind.

Hi Mujtaba
Very very nice photo. :)) Sleep cat.
Good composition.Well done.


Strong storytelling... Reminds me many homeless cats in Turkey - where I am originally from.

Great catch!

Afternoon kitty-nap :)

very funny!i guess the cat didnt think in the box but it sure did use it.

You really have eyes for details, and see the world with your heart.I love cats, therefore this one goes to my favorites, great capture and funny too!TFS!

I'm a push over for a cat and I hope this one was just making use of a 'good spot' and it wasnt his only home. Titan still sleeps in any box he finds but he spends most of his time using them as a means to sharpen teeth, claws, neck muscles.......messy so and so he is. Lovely shot

Hi Mujtaba,
Well captured image of this puss! He maybe likes milk?? Great composition, sharpness and details are good, nice colours too. HE looks like he has seen a few battles. Well done and TFS Cheers Tina :-)

Hi Mugush,

I really find this a splendour of a photograph!
Me does thinks about of people who to live on the street.
This cat gives the iedee pecked of people or people of the cat???

Hi Mujtaba, really funny picture together with the note :-)
Nice detail and capture!

Hello Mujtaba

This cat really knows what he wants. After drinking all the milk, he went to sleep.
Nice humoristic picture.

Regards, Sylvain

You've gotten a lot of points for this one, so I don't know if you'll even notice another comment, but how funny that this feline chose a milk box to nap in. Who said cats were dummies? lol

poor cat :( i love animals and hate when i have to see homeless animals :( i recently signed a petition for the parliment to vote a law in my country that should protect animals,actualy all my friend and family did :P the kitty is very very nice :) and you captured very well the life that a homeless animal has. congratulayions


Hello Mujtaba - Well observed and nicely framed within the picture. TFS!

I think this little poem fits your image:

Cats sleep anywhere, any table, any chair.
Top of piano, window-ledge, in the middle, on the edge.
Open drawer, empty shoe, anybody's lap will do.
Fitted in a cardboard box, in the cupboard with your frocks.
Anywhere! They don't care! Cats sleep anywhere.
Eleanor Farjeon (1881 - 1965)

Hi Mujtaba !

Khalis Doodh! Yes I get it! Indeed very humorous and well-spotted! Not only on the photo quality front but also the photo-journalist inside you has posted a very impressive shot here! Although I spotted it late but as the saying goes 'der aaye durust aaye' :)

Congrats and thanks for sharing!
Cheers and have fun!

cats are surely the masters of finding comfort.
a box can be a great bedroom from time to time.
the "Pure milk" printing adds a nice touch of humor.
pleasant capture.
