The Shy Little Kitty
Because my knee is still giving me trouble I had driven to the park instead of walking. I took the way home past my mailbox with the intent of picking up my mail. As I parked, I saw a kitty perched between the slats of this broken fence. It would have made an ideal shot, but as I expected, the cat went back behind the fence when I opened the car door.
Since I know that although kitties are shy, they are also curious. I was relying on that when I looked through the slats at an angle. It's not exactly the picture I was hoping for, but I'm happy with it. I'm glad the cat stayed close to the fence instead of running out of sight to hide.
He is looking intently at a hornworm on that borage plant in front of him. If you enlarge the photo by clicking, maybe you will see it, too. He loves to patrol my garden, but, unfortunately, he also tries to do other business where he shouldn't, so I don't encourage him to linger anymore.
Do you have neighbor cats who visit you?
