Cheeky Balcony Garden Visitor

He is quiet and small, he is black
From his ears to the tip of his tail;
He can creep through the tiniest crack
He can walk on the narrowest rail.
He can pick any card from a pack,
He is equally cunning with dice;
He is always deceiving you into believing
That he's only hunting for mice.

Ok so this isn't actually Mr Mistoffelees, it is a neighbours cat who visits us from time to time. He is impossibly hard to photograph, hence the paltry offering on this post. He is a treasure and loves the balcony garden except last night managed to give totally awesome housemate and I a fright. Never let a black cat cross your path? Right well, what about when said cat has sneaked into your apartment at some point through the opened bedroom door, crept around to the living room, and wandered past unannounced. It made us jump out of our seats in fright! Then he got pats abd cuddles and was sent on his way.

Always welcome to visit neighbour cat, we don't mind, though next time ring the doorbell, or at least pose for some better portraits.

What a sweetie pie your visitor is! He's the twin for one of my kitties, who happens to be the sweetest of my bunch.

Hi Michelle, dopeelganger kitties, I like it. Barney is really sweet, but whoa did he give us a fright that night!!!

LOL! My aunt's cats will jump in other people's cars if they leave the window open. And my mom's cat has been known to let herself into the neighbor's house through their kitty door and help herself to their cat's food.
