Here is a nice kitty that my human met in the streets of Washington, DC, in the Eastern Market district. The district is rather residential, with houses with nice gardens.
My human reports:
The kitty was sitting on the sidewalk, just looking around. She had a collar and seemed to be familiar with the practice of monitoring what was going on in the street. I thought I would try to pet her, of course, when I saw a man walking a dog on his way to the cat. The dog started barking at the kitty that quickly got behind the bars of a garden, and hissed at the dog from behind the bars, where the dog couldn’t reach her.
When the dog was gone, the kitty responded to my calling her. She came out of the garden, and since I squatted down to be able to pet her, she jumped on my lap, settled down, and started to purr.
I won’t comment on that. I could do that too human, if you were here with me.
I had to leave for I was awaited, but this kitty seemed to know that a kitty’s purring would be much appreciated!
We’re very good at at, aren’t we? Now come back home, human.
