A Photo a Day of Christchurch New Zealand

A kitty at my window!

Ever get that feeling someone is watching you? Well I did this morning – and imagine my surprise (and delight) when I spotted the neighbours cat (probably still really a kitten) sitting on our recycle bin and watching me work. She stayed sitting there observing me intently for a good ten minutes! She’s called Matilda and she has been very fascinated with us for a couple of months, but very much from a distance. If we came anywhere near her she would shoot back to the safety of home. But today she finally decided she’d allow me to pat her and then she was off on her way. Clearly she had some pressing business to attend to.
