You Capture: Looking In

This little fellow (or gal, I really have no idea as this is not my cat) has recently become a frequent visitor to our backyard. I believe s/he lives in the house just over the fence kitty-corner from us. (pun kinda intended there) I believe s/he is attracted to the plants growing along our "dry creekbed" which, when I looked at the notes I took after Madrone Landscaping finished our backyard a couple years ago, is called Cat Mint.  That's some of it right there at the little kitty's furry feet. Frankly I hate this plant - it grows like crazy and obviously attracts cats which isn't good when one enjoys bird watching. We haven't had any birds at our feeder since these plants arrived. But we have cats! Oh, boy, do we have cats! I ripped a couple of the plants out last fall (they come out real easy!), but we still have three or four left. And the kitties LOVE them. We will often see the plants smushed down where some cat was rubbing it's face or rolling in it. Gah! So annoying!

Anyway ... Here's my submission for You Capture this week of a neighbourhood kitty looking in to my window as I was looking out at her. Or him. Whatever.

Oh, and by the way, this cat totally took off running just after I snapped that shot! I've never seen s/he move that fast before!
