Italian cat picture story

I know how people like cats around here so I thought I would post this little picture story about a cat I came across during one of my tours of Italy.



What is that I smell?



Seems to be coming from up here.



Yum, chicken!



She lived in the B&B where I was about to check in. She became my friend for the weekend.

Actually the baiting was not intentional. We finished up lunch and just placed it there till I could find a place to toss it. She came a stalking!

You gotta love a hotel or B&B with their own kitteh!

Does anyone remember the name of the hotel that will "loan" you a cat for your room if wanted? I read about it a while back. If you like having a cat around at home, they let you pick one of their own moochers to be pampered while you stay. Seemed like a good gig for the moggies.

Hate to break it to you, but I think the "she" is actually a "he", based on the colour. But yes, what a nice kitteh. Chicken will always make you friends

We used to have many buff or orange kitties living at our house. Now it seems to be black & white ones or spotted ones that turn up on our doorstep. Lovely photos anyway.

That's what I was thinking. Ginger toms are always, well toms. Female cats with the ginger gene turn all calico.

He /she. I just took a guess. I didn't know about color. And I did not check out the under carriage.
