A wise choice for a photo essay. I hope there are more :nod:. You're capturing that odd bond between humans and cats - at least the domestic variety.

Mark Twain is a seemingly never ending source of wisdom  and insight. But in this particular case, I cannot fully agree with him, since the specific characteristics of a cat demands a world where it can roam undisturbed by immediate competition. If that competition exists, that natural predator turns natural killer, and mercilessly so. If we humans would try to adapt to the minds of cats (or would be able to breed with them), we would be well-served if there would be only one man to be found every one hundred miles. Less than one hundred miles, we would find ourselves busy with incessant killing. Ok, we do that anyway, from time to time, but not as a full-time occupation. :D

I've never been one to be told what to do and when to do it or how to do it. In that sense, I'm probably kind of close to a cats mind. But I also never meant to see my fellow human beings as pure competition, to be eradicated if circumstances demand. No, I value friendship and loyalty, even if tested. Maybe that's why I get along with dogs quite well most of the time. Because once they trust you, they will be with you, no questions asked. :-)

But putting Samuel Langhorne Clemens aside for a moment, then it has to be said that you've done a splendid job with portraying these poor little wretches of your huge and forever advancing city. :-)

Man, I really hate to disagree with Mark Twain, even if it is partially only. But this time I had to. :D

I've learned, from a very early age, never to get involved in an argument between one or more intellectuals. ;)
So I'm gonna sit this one out. :D

Too bad ... so I couldn't bait you? Which can only mean that my reasoning is so weak, it does not allow for intellectual engagement. :D

Your reasoning? And weak? Oh, hell no! 
It's just that I tend to admire my intellectual superiors from a respectable distance -- say about twenty arm's length, so that I don't end up being completely obliterated by their sheer awesomeness. :D

It's a great series - your photography is wonderful and some of the cats are stunningly beautiful.

On the one hand you have photos of urban animals. On the other hand (you might not be aware of this) you are high-lighting society's lack of responsibility towards animals, which is strongly emphasised by the dying cat. I'm a supporter of desexing and people taking responsibility (it's our duty) and I can't help but feel sad when I see those cats.

I was horrified by the photo of the dying cat. I'm glad that you were there to care for it in its last few minutes of life. I'm saddened that you couldn't do more for it.

A moving Feature.
