A church watch-cat

.

Guardian of the threshold?
A cat sits atop the gate next to a church in old Jaffa.


Immanuel Church was built in 1904 in Jaffa's American/German Colony. 
Its history is so interesting, and unique. 


The Protestant church holds services on Saturday in Hebrew and English.
On Sundays only in English. 


Linking this post to Camera-Critters and inSPIREd Sunday memes.

UPDATE: Just learned that today is Cat Day (well, in America at least).  Happy Cat Day!
