On my second walk I came across this little beauty sitting on her porch looking rather bored.
I expect she is put out in the morning and left for the day until the owners return from work.
Well, I took her mind off her boredom for 20 minutes or so as I sat with her and gave her a little massage.
I placed her in the shade before I left so she would not get a sun burn on those little ears or her nose.
White cats have a high rate of skin cancer caused by the sun, also.
Skin cancer in white cats is due to excessive sun exposure. This is because white cats lack the protective pigment that other cats have. Skin cancer most frequently occurs on the tips of the ears, sparsely haired areas around the ear base and the eyelids. Also the tip of the nose. The worst time for sun exposure is between 10am and 2pm.
Audrey is a happy in-door cat and I am glad about that. She has no interest in going outside. Her window seats and the cat-tree at the patio door keep her amused and content. I can imagine she would be a holy terror in the great out-doors. Not a bird would be safe.
When I return from a walk she greets me and sometimes I even get what looks like a smile.
"A smile...she's dreamin' "
UNTIL...she gets a whiff of the strange cat on my hand.
"Why I oughta..."
I then get the cold shoulder for awhile
Just long enough to have a cup of tea in peace.
