I went running last week through an autumn world washed in morning sunlight. There were so many things to see, so much beauty, that after I'd returned home I took my camera and drove around town snapping pictures of everything I'd admired along the way.



There was a tree-lined street where the mayor lives... and apparently the mayor's cat! :)



She was perched in a tree feeling quite put out with me for disturbing her hunting ambush (I like birds, so I was not apologetic).



When it finally dawned on her that I was not leaving, she wiggled down the tree and ran off into the golden universe. It was the first time I'd had a chance to stand and laugh with the mayor's wife, who stood calling out to her kitty as she pranced indignantly into the mouse-filled meadow.

They mean a lot...and I feel not "alone" at all when i know someone- even though they are on the other side of the world:)- understands!!!

How beautiful that cat is! I loved that you dared to interrupt her hunting!

P.S. I just knew that you and Dawn would be soul-sisters. I told her after I visited your blog that you reminded me so much of her that she should come visit you to see if you were kindred spirits. I love you both! :)

Lovely day for a stroll, I love the color of the leaves.
You made me smile, Allison :>)

Such a beautiful photo, the fall colored cat and leaves. I love his expression.

Would you like my cat? Then you can have one of your own peeking out of your trees and stalking birds? He no longer hunts...is simply picturesque!
