Some feline friends

Some cats in the n’hood like to come out and greet us as we walk by.
This is Mallas, who prances as she walks, waving her tail like a tall flag. Contrary to her name, she does not bring bad luck. She’s a botanist, likes to roll amid grass and flowers.

And this is Gizmo, who leaps tall fences in a single bound as he explores the neighboring yards. He usually gallops to us, then immediately drops into a “shoulder roll”. He enjoys “assisting” people in their yards, and tries to slip inside doors so he can “check out” your house.

There is something about the presence of a cat...that seems to take the bite out of being alone.

What delightful cats! I especially like Gizmo (what a great name) - amazing coloring. I see quite a few cats on my walk to the carpool, including one that's happily leashed up like a dog (on a very long lead).

Gizmo is the most social cat in the n'hood -- quite a character! I'm very fond of him. He lives two doors down from us, so we see him often.
That's interesting about the cat you see that walks happily on a leash!
