Another animal photograph from me, so something way outside the comfort zone - I don't know how it will be received but I like it and wanted it in my pf. The above image was taken on Koh Kret, an island in the Chao Praya river around 20 km from Bangkok, in the province of Nonthaburi. Compared to the swirling maelstrom of Bangkok, Koh Kret has the look and feel of a rustic village, with wooden shacks leaning against palm trees and the occasional still-used but dilapidated temple. Even the Police Station is a wooden shack on stilts! Take away the modern signs and the occasional motor cycle and you will find that in some parts of the island a visit to Koh Kret is like stepping back in time.

When I came upon the above scene at first I thought that there was some serious amorous intent, but a closer look revealed that the cat above had sunk its teeth into the scruff of the neck of the other cat and was really applying pressure! The victim twisted and turned and managed to get free, whereupon an almighty battle took place before the assilant above turned tail and fled, with the ginger cat hurtling after it in hot pursuit. It was all over in less than thirty seconds, but it certainly caught the attention of passers-by! There were many cats around Koh Kret, a lot of them living wild and I suspect that these two were doing so as well. Their dispute may well have been territorial.

As for the island itself, Koh Kret was formed around 1722, when a canal was built as a shortcut to bypass a bend in the Om Kret branch of the Chao Phraya river. As the canal was widened several times, the section cut off eventually became a separate island. The island is home to descendants of the Mon tribes who were prevalent in central Thailand from the 6th to the 10th centuries. These charming people have retained their distinct identity with their style of Buddhism and also their pottery. Ko Kret is well known as a centre for the ‘kwan arman’ style of Mon pottery, which is basically baked unglazed red clay decorated with elaborate patterns. Another feature of the island is the amazing array of traditional Thai and Mon confectionary, which is always popular with the many visitors.

This is a great photograph Alan with really good detail. The ginger looks as if she is just waiting for the gap to flee, but the other cat really does look like a meanie. I wonder if the other cat was male?

Excellent capture Alan, so clear and detailed. Not sure they are feral as their coats look in good condition and one is wearing a collar. The ginger one seems to be coming off worse and his face looks a bit battered too. Cat fights are very noisy and aggressive but thankfully only last a short time usually. I liked your interesting description of Koh Kret too.

Great image, Alan - it has a painting-like quality to it, almost like an "old master", if you know what I mean - the sort of thing that would have been popular in Victorian times, perhaps.

Pretty sure this is a mating ritual - the grabbing by the scruff of the neck is standard -

she's doesn't appear in particular pain but she's not having any of it/him -

if they were fighting seriously from what I've observed they would be face to face rearing and slashing ?

Good grab
