The Black and White Cat

This morning between showers I walked to the mailbox and down to the creek. As I expected the creek was full and muddy. As I walked away from the bank I saw a cat sipping water from the fallen leaves. I see this cat often. He’s a pretty black and white cat with fluffy fur. He lives in the complex because he’s well cared for and friendly. I think he goes out for a stroll when he chooses. He walked over to me , stopped and sat there looking up at me. I talked to him and got out my cell phone to snap a picture. I thought he’d run away before I could get him in focus but to my surprise, he stayed there watching me, so I snapped a couple of pictures as he sat and posed for me then he turned and walked away.

@RubyHawk ........Our cats don't venture out too far. One of them got poisoned by the guy just over the fence. Some people. This cat you post about looked like a healthy and happy cat. That's good he feels so at ease around your complex.

@celticeagle He does look healthy and well fed. You can see by looking at him that he's well cared for. I’m sorry your cat was poisoned.

@RubyHawk - I am very careful with cats I do not know. A neighbor, who moved some years ago, had a black female cat. She was pretty, she came to rub against your legs and seemed to want cuddles. As you touched her, she scratched or bit your hand.

@LadyDuck Not all cats are friendly, the same as other animals they can scratch and bite. That’s why i would never reach out to pet a cat or dog.

@RubyHawk Cats with white on them always seem to manage to keep themselves really clean and a bright white.

That's a beautiful cat. It happen to me with a dog that I met while camping. The dog followed me wherever I went and stay at the door of the camping tent while I was away. One day on a stroll to the nearest store. I got my camera out and told him with words to stay sat in one place. The dog just stared at me with a calm face and I took the picture. Cats are some of the most intelligent creatures. I used to own one cat and became mesmerized by him

Animals are more intelligent than we give them credit for. When I lived in a house people dropped off cats at my house. They stayed outdoors and climbed on the roof and everywhere. We fed them and otherwise they took care of themselves.

@RubyHawk What a blessing for all those cats. They had food and time to do what they like to do.

@quantum2020 They did exactly as they pleased. They didn’t bother anybody or cause any damage. They did their own thing.

He is gorgeous! I can't get a picture of my cat sitting up; he lays down on his back when i bring out the camera. Also, mine wouldn't come up to you like that. He has no problem with me. He loves me to pet him, but if another human enters the house, he is under our bed or down to the basement. He will hide until they leave. Occasionally, he will come out for my sister. She was here Monday, and he went under our bed the whole time she was here.

@RubyHawk He is afraid of or hates all humans but me. We get along incredibly, and he has no problems when it is just the two of us. When somebody comes for a visit, he gets all upset.
