Friday the Bearded Lady, here...
What? You were expecting Elvira Mistress of Felinity or Sneakers the Texian Tuxedo?
I asked for this assignment because, while they were rescued off the street, too, Daddy Kiril found Elvira on his doorstep and Sneakers out by the mailbox....
Me? He found me poking my head out of some bushes on a busy street while he was out for a walk! I was a true "Street Seen" rescue!
Daddy was worried I might not be up to such a serious task as this celebration, but Sneakers told him to relax, she'd look over my post before giving the green light.
Hmph! I'm proud that she didn't change a thing of what you are about to read!
I hope Mr. Nikita, looking down from Rainbow Bridge, likes my tribute.
Daddy does not drive a car...he walks, bikes, and uses Mass Transit/Commuter Trains, to get around.
He did this in Southern California, where he, Nikita and Elvira first lived, from Santa Barbara in the north, to San Diego in the south, and from San Pedro/Santa Monica/Malibu, in the west, to San Bernardino, Riverside, and Temecula, in the east, even up into the mountains themselves according to Elvira.
He has continued to do so here in Houston, though he's yet to make it to the beach in Kemah or Galvetson and there are no mountains nearby.
On his travels, day, and night, he often sees Feral Cats, and Cats with homes whose Humans let them outdoors.
It occurred to him and Nikita that it would be cool if he took pictures of his Feline encounters and Nikita shared them on the blog that he had only begun the week before.
And so Street Seens was born on January 8, 2010 and featured 3 cats in Long Beach, Ca.
In 2010 there were 37 editions.
In 2011 there were 6 editions.
In 2012 there were 16 editions.
In 2013 there were 17 editions.
In 2014 there were 14 editions.
In 2015 there were 8 editions.
This is the 2nd edition of 2016.
Several hundred cats have made their appearance in the series; young, old, feral, not-so-feral, indoor cats with outdoor passes, feral colonies, and parents with their kids...even with collars daddy could not be sure the feline was not a stray, unless some human told him.
Let me encourage you to check out a few of my favorites in the series...
