Having moved not so long ago to Volgograd I have been surprised by an abundance of cats and cats various color and size. These, no doubt, lovely beings, lay in a shade, went, shouted, fought, chased one after another and the worst enemies — dogs in quantity surpassing all mine of understanding about reasonable number of these animals.
Perhaps one of the most interesting properties of this contingent cat's âîèñê was absolute fearlessness before «the tsar of the nature» - the person. To me as to the person, in the first, arrived of northern city where the meeting with a cat in city jungle is almost impossible, and in the second adoring all family cat's it was especially surprising. To all other, it is necessary to me where or to stop and remove from a shoulder a backpack with photoaccessories as from the nearest gate the next fluffy miracle will necessarily come up, and with rumbling will rush under feet. Can they it is simple feel the good relation to them?
Here and today, wandering on a city in search of the ordered shot, I have stopped on sunny side of Pease street, the street restored by one of first in post-war Stalingrade.
At the same moment because of a fence there was a striped muzzle, and, with meu which was designated probably «by me already go!», to me the cat, most, in my opinion, "cat's" color has rushed.
I have stroked it. In reply to so plain display of attention to the person, a cat start purr so it is diligent, and so abruptly has curved a back that to me during that moment became as that inconveniently from that that in a backpack there is nothing a food.
Having stroked it once again and, as though compensating absence of sausages-hotdogs, having scratched under a throat, I have moved the road.
Through some meters, having turned back, has seen that the cat continues to sit on the same place having lifted a paw. In its sight and it was read: Oh you, that you have stopped if at you even to eat with yourself isn't laid up for such handsome man as I!
