What are we looking at? I see a panel on the ground with something blocking the rays.

My cat, laying on her back sunning her self. I had laid the panel down to go get something out of the house. Guess I found the sunniest spot in the yard.

Cat trap. Other effective methods include an empty box, a clean article of clothing, or a cat-sized circle drawn on the ground.

From what I have been reading even the cats tail will knock out 50% of the panel.
