    The grey or "tabby" one is 5 yrs old, 15 lbs., the black is 4 yrs. old, 13 lbs. Yet, they are very bouncy.

    The black is Scottish fold breed, so he can sit up like human.

    Both have very oily and smooth hair. Both seems to very understand human languages; and they talk for their wants :) They have different characters and they are very very smart. Yeah, they are so cute.

    According to my brother, during hot summer days, the black one chooses to sleep on its back as shown in the picture. So funny and so smart.

    There's about four or five more species that visit every now and then :cool:. Reminds me of when I was about five years old and the ducks marched to our frontdoor for food instead of me going to the water about 10 meters away :D.

    "Little" is relative ;). It was shot with Konica Minolta Z10 through the double glazed door (3.2MP, 8x optical zoom, ISO400(max!)). It's not even mine, just borrowed indefinitely since my Minolta F200 refuses to work anymore. I only did the auto tone, contrast & color thing in photoshop.
    Think I'll go for something pocketable like Canon S90 next time or one of the latest Sony I saw recently (can get some discount on it then as well :)).

    That looks interesting as well now that you mention it. Roughly the same size, a little bigger/fatter and 20g heavier.

    The Sony HX5 (and TX7)
