Little Chucky is always desperate for a walk – at any time of the day – but we try and limit his ‘excursions’ because a leisurely walk is farthest from his mind. This is what he does and this is what he goes out for – chasing cats! The cats always get away, of course, not only because Chucky is leashed but because they are … Continue reading Hanging on for dear life!
This is one of those lucky cats that got clean away – in fact, it repeatedly gets away. The feline (this particular one among the scores that we have around the compound) makes it a point to come snooping in the garden only when Tyson is indoors nut, of late, it has started venturing out into the open, walking along the wall on to … Continue reading The one that got away
This is what we saw when we opened the front door this morning! Mr. Rabbit had come calling. We have often seen two of these cuddly creatures roaming around in the compound as we step out for a walk but it was a surprise when it came calling. The immediate fear was that Tyson would launch an attack so the priority was not to let … Continue reading Morning Surprise
I guess it’s time for this cat to say goodbye – to this life at least! Barely had I escorted Tyson inside the house than this rather menacing looking creature appeared from behind the wall and sat on the ‘toadstool’ I have set up with a makeshift birdbath, having a rather ‘cool’ drink! Tyson, as expected, went ballistic – thankfully behind closed doors. What I … Continue reading Being foolish?
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 … Continue reading Smitten kitten
As I took a picture of a just dismantled “hut” on the coast this evening, out sprung this ally cat as if from nowhere. And, unlike any other cat, it refused to go away. Rather, it made a scary face, its hair stood on end and it gave me a look as if it was the most ferocious tiger on the planet. The resultant pictures … Continue reading Quite a cat
I went out early this morning to catch the sunrise but this is what I got (above). Though at the coast well before the sun started to come up, it was nowhere to be seen because of the fog and the cloud cover. Instead, I captured this cat (left and below) in a playful mood. I have taken pictures of cats before – hundreds of … Continue reading C for Cat
