Selfie of a cat


Well! -- this was the first time I ever took a selfie of a CAT!

But there is a good reason why I couldn't get up and stand in front of the cat and take a normal shot.

Yesterday my Shishi Zioni group went to three places in the Ramat Negev region to hear about three different types of communities.  (More about that in coming posts.)
Most of the folks sat down on chairs on one side to hear Itai, a member of Shizaf, talk to us.

I sat on a row of stacked stones on another side.
A cat came from behind to check out the several people on the stones.
I said "Psst psst" to invite her him over.
She He accepted and came for a good snuggle, then settled down right next to me!
The lady on the other side of the cat was not at all happy about our new neighbor.
But I happily laid my hand on the warm, fluffy, clean, purring kitty and tried to concentrate on the lecture and not attract attention.
I just had to,  however, take one discreet selfie of this sweet animal!
Wish I could have taken her him home. 
UPDATE: I am now reading the garinsheizaf Facebook page of the community and learn that the cat is a male named Bentzi and he is their only cat.

  1. Well kitty seems to have enjoyed your company too!

  2. I would have done the same thing...good for you...:)JP

  3. She's sweet, and looks very well loved. Tabbies are always the friendliest cats.

  4. You are the Right Sort!

    Lovey friend :-)

  5. The world is divided into
    a. those who loves cats
    b. those who love dogs
    c. those who do not want to be bothered by either.

    I am guessing the unhappy lady on the other side of the cat did not belong to the first group :)

  6. That's a beautiful cat. He wanted to be part of the group! :-)

  7. Nice pictures, my favorite is obviously the cat!

  8. Kitty! He looks very calm and contented :) I just spent an hour trying to fix the garage up more for the stray cats that live in the yard so they won't get so wet when it rains.

  9. this photo of the cat. :)
