This very cute looking alley cat in Bahrain’s Muharraq neighbourhood came out of ‘hiding’ when it heard yet another man with a camera had come calling. This particular area on the island is a well-known ‘haunt’ for photographers eager to capture the country’s ‘original’ heritage of old houses, ancient mosques and museums and the ever so friendly people.
As I stood pondering whether to enter the ‘fencing’ surrounding one of the sites being restored, out sprung this feline. It initially looked at me from behind an opening and then showed itself as if posing for a photograph.
And, as if that wasn’t enough, it came out even more boldly, and confidently, perhaps knowing it was presenting an interesting, and ‘photogenic’ sight! The only problem was that it stood still for as long as I was clicking.
Perhaps it still has a long way to go before becoming a fashion model!
