  4. They’re a real enigma cats. Ours used to stare for ages looking up and down at the bottom stair in our Victorian terrace. Gave me the creeps. Great quotations…👍

  7. Wonderful photos and quotes. The mistress of our house is a beautiful little black cat called Bandit. She trained me pretty quickly which means I can have the pleasure of her stretching out across my keyboard or being wakened in the middle of the night when she brings a mouse in to play in the bedroom. To her complete disgust my husband can’t be trained to her way of thinking so she ignores him – or runs away when she sees him.

    1. I think they like to play one off against the other, we had 2 sisters and each chose their own person!

  8. Oh my goodness! My favs— the cat in Cyprus and the last shot. All the pictures are great but the last one is superb! Love it.
    ‘Had me trained in two days’! Classic.
    Zen Masters they are!

  9. A cat person I’m not really. My heart belongs to the Okapi. ( 🙂 ) But cats do make a wonderul subject for the odd photograph. I like all your picture but the last two, of Winnie and Skye, I find more then beautiful.

  13. “Cyprus 2005” is cute; “Winnie, at ours, 2020” is intriguing; but, for me “Troodos Mountains, Cyprus 2012” stands out as a rather fine portrait indeed.
