A Photo a Day of Christchurch New Zealand

I’m being adopted by a cat

About a year ago this cat turned up on my doorstep crying and pleading for food. Now I know feeding someone else’s cat is just asking for trouble, but the cries were so pitiful and then I looked about 20 feet down the driveway and saw another tabby watching on. I suspect one of my neighbours went on holiday and left them to be fed by someone else – who did a pretty poor job at it. So I gave in, hoping that once the neighbours returned the cats would soon forget all about me. And they did. But then …


the neighbours took possession of a very cute puppy, who is now a very large dog.. and my wee furline friend is trying very hard to adopt me, and maybe also the folks in unit 2…. (yes I know you’ve been sharing the love Ms KittyKat).

So, is the dog eating the food? Or has the cat cottoned on, and realised I’m a big softie? Either way,what’s a can of tuna now and then between friends, and look at the shot I got as thanks! It only took 30 blurred shots of this cat’s behind, tail and back of the head, but it was worth it – proving that patience is everything in photography.
