I love this image because it is deceptively simple but says so much about comfort, adaptability, relaxation, and safety; it also works as a ready-made meme with a bit of naivety and unfiltered humor. The color palette and patterns of the tablecloth and the cat's swirling tabby fur are also quite soothing. I immediately smiled when I saw this image and I know from the photographer that Bear here saw the new cast iron skillet sitting on the kitchen table and promptly curled up to take a long nap. She didn't adjust him or alter the scene in any way and like most cats, he acts like he owns the whole house.
