What Are You Looking At?

Not all cats are as amiable as Psycho Cat.   This unfriendly feline refused to pose for more than a few seconds before scampering beneath the building.  She kept an untrusting eye on me until I was far enough away to no longer be a threat.  Then she emerged to polish off the cat food scattered on the …
