One of the many cats on Ellsworth between Dwight and Blake, but not the one I’m looking for. More creeping there in the future.
This is a blog about cats in Berkeley, Calif. and where you can find them.
This cat did not want to be messed with. I came across her on Fulton St near Blake following some old lady into a house with pretty lavender steps, but as soon as I made a move she hurried away and under a car. Apparently she’s a stray who only occasionally comes inside for some food and hates everyone except for this lady who’s been feeding her for the past 5 to 7 years. I tried not to take it personally.
This cat has such a cute face, but is terribly camera shy. This is attempt number two to get some shots of it, and I still barely succeeded. I’m gonna have to do more creeping on Webster west of Telegraph to see if I can get even closer.
The youngest kitty I’ve encountered so far, this tortoise shell baby was also napping on a porch in the sun on Webster street just off Deakin near some flowers it had obviously just taken apart for fun. She was plenty friendly and a bit of a ham.
This cat tried to run away from me. Once it scampered under some bushes to get behind the backyard fence it thought it had me beat, but I still got a shot, though it doesn’t give this chubby black kitty (pretty much my favorite kind) much justice. Found him on Wheeler just south of Ashby.
First and prettiest of the day, this kitty had such striking eyes but was also such a tease. She was all types of friendly and meowing for our attention till we tried to pick her up — then she was less than pleased and scurried back toward her blue house on Prince Street between Tremont and Shattuck.
