Slinky Malinki April 2, 2018

2018_04_02_10_05_56.pdf000Years ago in Dublin we had a black cat that we named Slinky Malinki.  Here he is atop a fence and scratching and digging his claws in, just like our current cat Katerina.  Tops of fences are excellent surveillance posts.  That aside, I liked the morning shadow of the cat on the wall behind.  Memories.
