Stretch

This is a stray cat in our complex. I don't know whether it's a male or female, but I call him Oliver. He prefers to respond to "Here Kitty", though. Yes, cats have a mind of their own. He was abandoned by his previous owners and gets fed by a kind lady who actually feeds two strays, but will not allow them in the house.

Despite his hardships, Oliver is incredibly friendly and proves extremely tolerant of my wheelchair, even curling up in the shade it gives, right next to me, providing me with some great photo opportunities. I think he got offended for a while, with the name I gave him, because he literally avoided me all week last week, but forgave me this weekend when I called him "Kitty" again.

What a great shot. I love it, makes the viewer just want to pic it up and take it home ... GORGEOUS!
Once again, the detailing on his fur is soft and clearly visible, a great addition to your growing collection! Elize :o)

Thank you for this comment. I would have taken him home a long time ago, except Pumba hates cats.
