I walk next door to the neighbors several times during the week. Most of the time I don’t have my camera with me. MANY times I wish I did. The other day I managed to remember to take it with me and I happened to get a few photos of some of the wildlife that walks their yard every day.
Lolly pop is about five years old. He will not always let you know where he is, but if you see him and talk to him, he will usually look straight at you and listen and watch you. Sometimes he will approach you and sometimes will flop down for a belly rub. Other times he will walk the other way. This day he followed me around a bit.
Snoopy is around six years old and very indifferent to your presence. He usually doesn’t let you know where he is. Other times he will follow you around while you work in the gardens always remaining about five-ten feet away, never looking at you or what you are doing but always gazing into the distance like there is something much more important (very cat style I think).
Blackie is the newest member of their family. He is definitely under a year old. I would estimate he is around 9-11 months old. He is what I call “personality plus.” Always around to see what you are doing and what you are into. He will follow you around for hours and never tire of it, although he is easily distracted by other moving things. He will look up into your eyes and melt you heart and talk to you like he hasn’t seen you in weeks. I can just call him and he will come running to see me. If my cats would allow another cat to be brought into your home I would have brought him home in an instant. That just wouldn’t work, so I am happy to go visit him next door and I know he has a good home there.
Wildlife? Well…not really.
Each cat has their own distinct personality. My neighbors have five cats, all of which were strays that wandered onto their property and into my their hearts.
