  • Support per nominator. Excellent quality, DOF and composition. --WingtipvorteX PTT 21:27, 22 August 2012 (UTC)
  • Weak Support per Matthewedwards. EV could be better if the image showed what makes this cat different. --WingtipvorteX PTT 15:29, 24 August 2012 (UTC)
  • Neutral I'm sitting on the fence for now. How much EV is there in just the face? To me it looks like many other domesticated cats but from its name I have to assume it isn't. In fact, upon reading the article, we learn that it's bulkier than a house cat but their weights are similar, and that it's fur and size are it's distinguishing traits. Unfortunately we don't get to see these things. So if other commenters aren't concerned I'll strike my neutral. Matthewedwards (talk · contribs) 03:53, 23 August 2012 (UTC)
  • Change to oppose per reduced level of EV. It may be the best portrait on the web, but it's not the best that can be done. It simply may not have been done yet. Matthewedwards (talk · contribs) 04:11, 29 August 2012 (UTC)
  • Weak oppose The photo of entire cat would have higher EV. Brandmeistertalk 11:29, 23 August 2012 (UTC)

  • Support. Nice picture. Well done! TBrandley 01:46, 31 August 2012 (UTC)
  • Support Very good picture. Probably could be delisted and replaced by a good quality image of the whole cat later. Spongie555 (talk) 03:26, 31 August 2012 (UTC)
