This was written last October. More recently I saw a mostly black version of a Calico cat near one the buildings here – I wish I had had my camera with me.
What prompted this post was my sighting of another cat with similar markings. This was a visiting cat that I had heard about but had not actually seen. I spotted the wandering Calico cat from my 3rd floor window as I raised the blinds this morning. She was walking through the shrubs on a path to one of the other buildings here at Ida Culver Broadview. There is a cat named Oliver who belongs to one of the residents. Oliver encourages other outside non-resident cats to visit. I will name the one I saw this morning Katerina 2 – and think happy thoughts of the real Katerina.
