Camera Critters #33
Camera Critters time again, thanks to Misty Dawn.
I know that many of you love your cats very much. I do not have a cat. I have had them in the past, or rather, my children have had them. I am a dog person myself.I really prefer this kind of cat.
But thanks to neighbors, there are always cats around my house. For instance....
This one doesn't bother me much, and is the prettiest one of the bunch.
I say "bunch" because my next door neighbor has five, and most of them are allowed to roam the neighborhood. They only go home to eat.
This one spends most of his time on my porch. When he's on the railing, I don't mind. I hate it when he lies just outside of my door for me to trip over him.
This is the really mean one. His name is Buddy. He challenges other cats and gets into fights.
I couldn't find the picture I took of the white one, who lies directly under my hummingbird feeder every chance he gets. Here's another, not from next door. My daughter took this one. It's possible that I printed this near Halloween?
Those that live next door spend most of their time digging up my garden, tracking muddy paw prints all over my car, killing birds in my yard, or howling under my windows. As I said, I'm a dog person.
I really don't mind cats, and I think they are beautiful animals, so graceful. And of course kittens are adorable. But I do not understand why, if you have a pet, you wouldn't want to keep it at home, safe and protected, unless you happen to live on a farm and let them roam the acreage. When we had cats, they were always indoor cats.
