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.
@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.

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.

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.
