Yet another Siamese cat
I thought I had another, far cuter shot, but I was so shocked I got close enough to take it that I muffed it. Such is life!
Most evenings, I hear a "Miao miao maio miao miao" floating up from the soi, over and over again; an old lady imitating and/or calling her cat: แมว (maaeo) means "cat" in Thai, conveniently enough.
On the night I got back from my tooth extraction, I was walking out to buy more gauze when I passed her looking under the cars and calling, and for no reason at all looked left, and there the or at least a cat was placidly sitting on a doorstep, looking like butter wouldn't melt in its mouth. So I silently pointed -- my jaw being clenched to hold the gauze in place -- and she was happy, and I was happy. The cat, I presume, was if not happy at least soon fed. That cat was grey, of course, since it was night time, so I can't be sure that cat was this cat, even if both cats did share strategies for concealment and the frustration of humans.
There are never enough cute pictures of cats!
