Comments for Neighbor Cats
Caligula turned twelve in September. She's getting to be an old cat and she's never been a very social cat. She prefers the company of humans to felines.
Our next door neighbors have a pair of cats who came to visit yesterday. I heard of them first from Caligula's frantic growling and hissing at the glass door to our balcony. At first I didn't know where these two beautiful cats had come from and I certainly didn't want to spook them because the balcony is three stories off the ground. They would have a long fall if they jumped.
The cats explored the entire balcony from end to end over the course of an hour or so. All that time Caligula watched and growled at the door. I managed to get a few photographs of the cats and Caligula.
By noon the cats had walked back along the narrow ridge between our balcony and our neighbor's balcony. I watched them walk as if that inch wide ridge were a proper walkway. They made it look so easy. Caligula though stayed on guard for another few hours just in case they came back.
