Cuddling a Random Red Cat for #Caturday

It's Caturday!!

Let's talk about a random red cat that I met on Wednesday.

At least I think it was on Wednesday night, I could check the EXIF data in the images but I'm too lazy.

I was on my way back from one of my frequent evening strolls. The sun had just set and the pavement was still warm from a hot summer's day.

I came across this beauty, dazing away, enjoying the warmth radiating from this old stonewall surrounding the city's park.

She was doing the usual cat things, grooming herself, looking all pretty, minding her own business.

But the clickety-clack of my old 5D's shutter did get her attention soon enough.

Time for some cuddles! I'll stop for any random cat that I meet, even when I'm in a hurry.

Since I don't have a feline flatmate myself, I've got to get those soothing purrs whenever I can get them!

And oh she was a particularly cuddly one! I got to spend a good 10 minutes exchanging affections with her before she started to get a bit nervous.

You can sense when a cat starts getting a bit agitated... maybe prolonged cuddling with a stranger in public did make her feel a bit uncomfortable after all.

And you really shouldn't carry on cuddling until a cat has actually had enough, it'll leave both of you feeling uneasy afterwards. So, I decided it would be time to head on home, but before I left, she did give me one of those cat-stares:

You could say it was a great evening. Because it's always a great evening when you get to cuddle with a random red cat!

 


 

After parting ways with this cutie, I figured this would be a-class material to post today on #caturday. I took a peek at the caturday discord earlier today to see what's up there and was shocked to see the server pretty much dead and it's post-promotion shut-down after a bombardment of non-cat-related-nonsense.

I did bump into @samstonehill there, though, I think he owns that server and he agreed something had to be done about it being in such a sorry state. So, fellow caturdaynians, join that caturday discord, share your love for cats with other cat lovers and let's bring the place back to life again.

 


Thank you for viewing my @snaepshots!

I'm a proper cat-whisperer ;) I can get most kitties that aren't too shy to be approached to begin with to let me get a quick cuddle :P

Ahhhhh i wish i had a red head at home now we had one when i grew up and the seen different i cant explain ! I Will go to see the discord now with the link

I have some trouble piecing together your first sentence there... "the seen different"... I'm not sure what you mean...

It was worth a peek. Love it.

Totally cuddlable! Is that a word?

If that's not a word, yet... then it's about time we add it to the dictionary!

Seems so sweet! Very cuddly, and calm!

Nothing nicer than making new friends on a nice walk! I don't own a cat either and never had a pet cat as a child :( looking at your pictures makes me feel like I am missing out on something. Thanks for sharing tonight at #PYPT <3

having a cat-friend is really awesome... but you can always make friends with one in your neighbourhood, too.

/ᐠ.ᴗ.ᐟ\

yay... @steemkitten came :D no need to be jealous, you'll get your cuddles, too!

=⊝ᆽ⊝=

How pretty the cat and the shots you made... I love all living beings but cats are of my preferred due to their independence and loyalty quite peculiar. They give back love without doubts but depending on the individual, there are so many different personalities inside cat’s world...
I have a growing colony in my chalet which starts worring me a bit as they are not totally domesticated I can not control females, I don’t know what to do already.
Will be posting some shots when possible as well as stepping by on the caturday discord.

You said it man... cat's are awesome. I heard that cats have been living alongside humans for as long as or even longer than dogs. But unlike dogs cats have always just done their own thing, they've not let themselves become fully domesticated like the doggos did... more power to the kittehs!

Now that sounds like something I really want to see more about!

hehehehe what a sweet little ginger!!! :)

i loved how she let you have your own little photoshoot and even let you come in for a cuddle :)

enjoyed hearing you on #pypt and congratulations on your admin promotion on the caturday discord server hehehehe

What a beautiful kitty! I've always thought the orange tabbys were delightful and she looks so content with you there, giving her a little gentle loving! Thanks for introducing your new friend to PYPT! 😊
