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
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
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.
