Ten Kitties: Startled

Yep, time for another cat -- number nine, if I'm not mistaken. This one was about to jump up onto the notched wall, which signifies a garbage bin. Unfortunately those are the easiest places to find cats in Jakarta.

Marketplaces and outdoor cafes and warungs are also good. Bugils, a famous expat bar near our neighborhood, has an outdoor patio populated by a handful of well-fed cats who keep everybody entertained. They'll sit on an empty chair at your table with an expression that says, "Why don't we just order a few things to share?"

funny, Jackson has that expression all the time at home, and he is far from being underfed.

it's sorta like: "how's about you just slide a piece of that sandwich over this way?"

Cats are natural actors. Consider the "I didn't FALL off the couch, I meant to do it" expression. And the "No matter how many times you say my name, I can't hear you" expression.
