In the shadow of Prometheus

Prometheus found -- by a cat!
Who knows, maybe this cat appreciates art or is interested in Greek mythology . . . or maybe he is just hoping for a bite of liver.

Fittingly, the statue stands in the courtyard of Hebrew University School of Medicine at Hadassah Ein Kerem.
The little cat joins today's animals at Camera-Critters meme.

So sweet!

What an adorable capture! He'd probably like my two black and white cats - Orestes and Electra!

When you said "fittingly" I wondered why since Prometheus gave mortals fire. I checked the link out and saw that sure enough, poor guy had to have his liver eaten as punishment. Yuck! I forgot about that.

After my trip to the Verano cemetery the other day i must come to the conclusion that cats are the keeper of statues. They probably relish the fact that they are not moving, unlike the living.

I would have thought something or someone better than Prometheus could be found!

That cat is well versed in Greek mythology ;)
