That looks like it could be my cat's scruffy, grouchy older brother.

Folks might also enjoy the Bodega Cats Twitter.




(The underscore at the end of the name is important; apparently, there was an older account that did the same thing before, but which hasn't posted in years.)

The first time I saw him, I thought, "That's weird, a cat wandering around in here," but it has since become apparent that he more or less officially lives there. Despite his grouchy appearance, he has an excellent personality for a business cat, since he does not pester people for attention but accepts it graciously if they choose to give it.

Just a random pic of my cats from a couple days ago, when they were actually sitting close to each other.

Whoa. When I first saw it I thought the locals got drunk and drew a kitty because why not, and that everyone just thought it was old and they'd never noticed it before.

At one point I was doing field work outside of Los Alamos and a buddy and I walked up an arroyo away from the line for reasons I don't recall, and started talking about They Might Be Giants (this being 1993 and us being nerdy college kids) and he started idly scratching his stick-figure interpretation of Particle Man into the side of the arroyo (the rock there is a loosely welded tuff that you can more or less carve with a stick or even your finger if your callouses are in good shape) and I added Triangle Man next to him. An hour or so later one of the other students comes up the line super excited that she found some really well-preserved Anasazi petroglyphs!

Triangle wins!

Are you sure that's suppose to be a cat? Looks more like Batman than Garfield.

I'm just wondering what sort of cat it was. Pampas cat? Andean mountain cat?

Probably not a margay.

Doesn't the presence of a ceiling cat imply that there is a certain activity going on?

That is some first rate Maine coon (or Norwegian/Siberian forest cat). Ours scared a repair guy last year.
