~ JAPAN: THE ZEN OF ROADSIDE CATS ~

Japan

Felines - strays, farm cats & temple residents ~ encountered on the road during my walks in Japan. 

I’ll always at least attempt a photograph when I encounter a cat on my travels in Japan - often the feline has different ideas. You see a lot of strays when you road-walk in the country; often they’re very mistrustful. Japan has a long way to go in education about desexing etc. I often carry a pack or two of cat food for these meetings - but I’ve had hungry cats demolish much of my own lunch & even attempt to eat Vegemite when I had nothing else to offer.
