wise old cat

By Bogwoppett
I'm putting up this picture in a very tentative manner, wondering if I'm about to be savaged by the local wildlife!!!
Interested in your comments, but please be gentle!!
Friend's cat, called Montague Pythagoras, or Monty for short. Getting old now, but a wonderful, wilful character as ready to purr and curl up in your lap or slash you with claws, depending on what takes his fancy!!

Super shot, super cat, love his name.
I have a female (cat) who fits your description of Monty - kittenish one minute, grumpy old queen the next. God, she makes me laugh. Wouldn't swap her for the world.

Super capture, have 4 cats myself and one reminds me greatly of this pic. Same kind of arogance and self importance....don't you just love 'em!
Great capture of cat personality Steve

I wonder, Mr. Bogwoppett, if your friend is a writer of books? Cats are often the "familiar's" of writers and it would fit nicely with his manner and bearing, not to mention his name. At our home we have 9 much beloved, cats and we often "commune" with them. JCA
