On the evening of June 7th, on his bike ride home from work, Daddy Kiril decided to take a bit of a different path home.
With his camera in tow he hoped to see a couple of cats.
What he saw was a fascinating contrast that touches upon the stray cat crisis in Houston, that Elvira has reported on, yet also shows how difficult it can be to judge if cats you see outside are truly homeless and feral.
The residential part of Bellaire, the city in the middle of Houston, that is between the transit center and the Wal-mart where daddy works, is full of fancy, expensive homes and the front yards that come with them and these 3 cats were relaxing in the yard of one of them (notice the slightly open garage door?)
Meanwhile, a few blocks away, at two different locations...
As daddy was about to leave the neighborhood and soon cross Bellaire Blvd. he saw these cats, in a yard, under interesting conditions:
A cat in the walkway, one under the car, and one, in the driveway, between two cars...
It wasn't until daddy started to leave, after taking the 4th photo, that he saw reason for taking one more...
To daddy, and Elvira and I, it appeared that these kitties lived at this house, just as the first 3 cats appeared to live at that house but, short of knocking on doors and asking questions, there is no way to know for sure.
Also, daddy didn't want to disrupt the kitties by asking them, hee, hee!
