Visit From a Kitty

visit from a kitty

First i have ever seen.
Chased and caught one of my chipmunks, but as cats do it wanted to play with it. When it released it and it ran, the cat chased it, but it was then I rapped on the glass door , distracting it and the chippy got away. It saw my cat in the door glass and came to investigate, which is when i took the pictures. The door glass made for low quality pictures, but you get the idea.

This cat was lightning fast in reaction to my rapping on the glass, but never lost its composure. The impression was of supreme self confidence and afraid of nothing. It moved off with deliberation without the usual meandering of most domestic cats.

Saw one of those about two weeks ago, it was huge. Definitely had an air of confidence, I yelled at it and it just kept strolling without so much as a look. I'm guessing a feral cat for many generations.
