Sheena was an Abandoned Cat

Sheena is an indoor cat who hasn’t been socialized and cannot survive outside. But her previous owner abandoned her in an alley on the Vancouver Downtown Eastside.

A curious gray tabby checking the world

Many cats, especially when they are scared, like being on people’s shoulders. They feel safe because they are higher and protected by the person.

Actually, I use that position regularly with cats that “refuse to cooperate”. They don’t have the choice, they have to cooperate, they always will check what’s happening around and what’s when I “get” my photos …

Waiting To Go Back Home

cat waiting at the door

This cat wanted to come back into the house but there was nobody. When I passed there, she was already waiting and when I came back about 45 minutes later she was still waiting.

Since the photo was taken just before 6pm, I guess that she must have been waiting for her meal.

One of the problem is that in my neighborhood, there are coyotes …

Drug Addict Hooked on Catnip

Almost all cats can easily get hooked on catnip. Here’s “another one bite the dust!”

Cats can’t help themselves. The vast majority of the cats can’t resist catnip. It’s not just cats but also leopards and cougars. They break the catnip, they eat the catnip, they sniff the catnip and finally roll themselves in the catnip.

Some people claim that the …

Georgie is an old cat and he pretty much live in “his” cube. It’s been a couple of years that he lives in this cube. He only gets out for the “intake of food” and for the outtake. He likes to hide in his cube. He’s not really hiding, since he doesn’t hide his head, but his head stays in the cube.

A Very Uncooperative Cat: Vancouver, BC

Puss-Puss on handler’s shoulder

Puss-Puss is a very uncooperative cat. He doesn’t want to have his photo taken. Never. It’s not that he has a bad day here and there. With Puss-Puss, everyday is a bad day when there’s a camera involved. Normally, I make my “Daffy Duck” imitation. They are always surprised and look to see what’s that sound.

No!… Not Puss-Puss. He was …
