Kitty Corner

At the country store near where I live, there is a lovely colony of kitties.

Although these kitties are feral, and they will never be lap kitties, they really are beautiful, and they afforded me the time recently to photograph them.

Real Friends

The Chaperone

I thought I would take a short walk by myself – only, kitty Milo must have thought I needed a chaperone
