Don’t Touch That Mailbox!

My neighbor's calico cat makes sure her mail is delivered properly!

I often see my neighbor’s calico kitty looking out the windows of the enclosed front porch as I walk by on my way to Main Street. She’s truly a neighborhood guard cat! Finally the light was right on an overcast morning to catch her photo without glare on the glass, and it turns out to be one of the days when she’s guarding the mailbox, my favorite pose. I’d think twice before messing with her!

Of course, she probably has her buddy the serious brown dog, who I also often see in the porch, do her dirty work, as she seems like a true Queen Cat. I can just imagine her telling the dog, “Of with her head!” I’m on foot, I’d better get away while I can.

    My kitties used to wait in the window every afternoon at 2:30 for the school bus to drop my daughter off. They were always right on time!

    That’s so funny! I love how familiar you are with the neighborhood cats. Maybe this one is just waiting for you to walk by so she can get a good look?

    She seems very serious about her guard duty.
