I never saw a pug-nose cat before. I met this one in an alley-way in Strathcona yesterday evening.
A baleful glare. Maybe it's the yellow eyes (click on the photo to get the full effect) or the scars on the face. (Is that a recent wound on his nose?) He looks like a scrapper. But he gave no sign of being annoyed by my photography, and sat there calmly while I experimented with flash/no flash and distant shots/close-ups. The light was fading, so I needed the flash, but it did strange things with his eyes:
One yellow eye, one green eye.
We will be house-sitting in Strathcona for the next two weeks. Blogging may be sporadic at first; my daughter's computer keeps adding uncalled-for formatting to this post. (It just needs to learn the rules: I am the boss, not it. I'll be giving it a good lecture tomorrow.)
Now, I'll hit "Publish" and see what happens. Wish me luck!
