    Cute pic! I like the pose with the paw up and the closed eyes. When I read the title I expected another costume kinda like an old Yul Brynner movie.....he's got the haircut!

    Awesome! Love it. The only nit I would pick would be the cutting off of his right hind paw. Other than that, he looks like the regal beast that he is.

    I hear ya on the crop Iggy - as i was taking the image, I was 'willing' that limb to go inwards - but it wouldn't listen and including the outstretched limb killed the comp. The gesture was interesting enough to me though that I felt the limb should be sacrificed. lol.

    I was picking nits. It totally does not detract from the awesomeness that is Baci.

    I have been wondering how you pronounce his name, Marko.

    Is it "backee", "basee", "bachee", "bachi" ??

    Thanks everyone!

    Baci - the Italian word for kisses or the Yummy chocolate with the same name - Your last 2 interpretations seem good iggy. I might write it out pronounced ba-chi or bahchee depending on how you read these things - lol.

    That looks like one blissed-out cat. "Bast"-king in the sun obviously agrees with him.
