  1. It looks kind of like a cat--when I saw it's ear in the larger image that's what came to mind.

  2. CAT!!! They love sofas and pillows.

    You have a Thank You on the way, and a bookmark to boot.

  3. a cat, really? seemed really big to me.

    Thanks Mr. C!

  4. Whatever it is, I hope it's not a bear!

  5. Definitely a cat lying on top of some sort of white, fluffy object...
    Letting your cat sleep on something that doesn't match its color is a big no-no, so that would mean the person who took the picture has either never had a cat before, or is afraid of it...which would be explained by it's size...and so the rambling ends...
