Around the ‘hood

In the courtyard, we had Tyrannasaurous Rex standing guard…img_4913_1_1.JPGimg_4917_1_1.JPG

This was the rest of his entourage– a grandfather was washing up all the toys and spread them out to dry.

A stray cat that was peacefully napping until I intruded for her close-up.  Note that she’s chosen one of the ubiquitous scooters that line the sidewalks.

I discovered her on a long walk after our New Year’s hot pot gorge.  We were heavy with noodles and all the goodies you can stuff in a hot pot, yet quested onwards for the famous tea shop.  It was a lazy afternoon, most stores shuttered, and slightly warm.  This cat looked so cosy and comfortable in her sunny spot.  I’ve seen dogs on scooters before, tails curled securely behind them as their owners drive them about.  I’ve seen an entirely family of four on a scooter, which made my teeth clench in anxiety for them.  I’ve also seen a baby worn on a sling being chauffeured about on one, which also made me anxious for them.  But I hadn’t seen a cat nap luxuriously on one until New Year’s.
