Orange Meows

While sweeping tree seeds and other small debris off of the driveway yesterday afternoon I heard a familiar meow behind me. I glanced backwards and down then noticed Orange the cat.

He meowed and trilled as he rubbed his body against my right shin. As I massaged the space between Orange’s ears, I asked him why he was visiting in the afternoon. He could only trill in response.

He made his way to the center of the front yard and playfully attacked a “helicopter seed” that had fallen from the neighbor’s maple tree.

I took advantage of his distracted mood to quickly fetch some treats. I also grabbed an old point-and-shoot camera because I didn’t have any presentable pictures of my four-legged friend. (Early morning is not conducive to feline photography without the aid of flash.)

Orange noticed my return and began showing off in the yard. Soon, he began stalking me again. So I clicked the camera shutter to capture his seriously funny antics.

Here are two quick snapshots of the kitty who usually visits me first thing in the dark of very early morning. Orange’s daytime appearance was quite a happy treat.
Now you know who I’m writing about whenever I mention the orange feline visitor who brings precious moments of joy.

Ciao (Meow)

The Blue Jay of Happiness quotes 20th century horror writer, H.P. Lovecraft. “Cats are the runes of beauty, invincibility, wonder, pride, freedom, coldness, self-sufficiency, and dainty individuality–the qualities of sensitive, enlightened, mentally developed, pagan, cynical, poetic, philosophic, dispassionate, reserved, independent, Nietzschean, unbroken, civilised, master-class men.”
