With that intense gaze, this kitty could be the feline version of Steve McCurry’s Afghan girl. In actuality, she was wary of foreign intrusion in the form of a nosy visitor (me). All rightey kitty, the alley is yours.
I was walking along Dunlop Street in Little India when I spotted this kitty cat lazing on a wooden table outside a backpackers’ inn. It gave me a menacing “Whadda hell do you want?!” scowl when I went near…I thought the expression looked kinda cute though, just like a child haha.
“Don’t come any nearer, I’m gonna pounce…” I hesitated for a moment.
After a few minutes of convincing sourpuss I’m a friend not a foe nor food, it was quite happy to be patted all over. It at it self-servicing, pushing its head to me to be scratched! It was a big fluffy softie afterall. So cute! Hope I will bump into the little bag of joy again soon.
