On one of my walks, I came up a group of kitties on a roof. I couldn’t decide if they were avoiding something or just hanging out together. They look too relaxed to be frightened or bothered. Perhaps this is the feline equivalent of gossiping over the fence.
I find cats to be so engaging and endearing. They have standoffish ways and I don’t like their sharp teeth and claws but still, I love seeing them.
Over the last six months, a neighbor’s cat befriended us. She would look for us as we took our periodic walks and herd us over to her favorite territory. We’ve spent a whole lot of time sitting on the cold winter sidewalk petting, hanging out together and listening to her purr.
She (with her family) moved last month and although I do not miss the fur on my hands & face and in my nose, I do miss those pointy ears and her thumping tail.
