His Supreme Majesty King Harry

I was passing through the Glebe one afternoon when this cat walked over. The first and last two shots were the final shots I took- the rest were taken one handed and with no screen reference after the cat- a grand fellow by the name of Harry- decided to take possession of my lap, my shoulder, and the rest of me, purring madly the whole time. He was a very friendly kitty and benevolent superior life form.

  4. What a wonderful serie.
    I recognize the situation, I've had such a visitor some years ago when I was resting during a walk. For cat lovers this is always a nice experience. :-)

  9. King Harry knows a devoted slave when he sees one. I'm surprised he didn't take you home with him!

  15. @Tex: thanks!

    @Norma: I suspect he gets plenty of attention at home!

    @Red: a lot of confidence. Some cats can be quite skittish.

    @Grace: and he's such a photogenic subject of selfies.

    @Linda: thank you!

    @Sharon: I was!

    @Beth: there's a ginger cat a couple of houses away from my home that's very skittish. I don't think he or she will ever come up to me. I do say hello when that one's outside, but it's never come to me.

  22. What a sweetie. Harry is obviously extremely smart and knew immediately that you were a sucker, er..., that you loved cats and would provide him with the kind of attention that got his little motor rumbling!

    Happy weekend!

  33. Cats are like people. Some are extroverts and some aren't. Harry obviously was! Sweet boy!

    Him. Not you. You have a little too much spice to be called sweet!

  34. Nice grab shots of your new friend, Harry, and die to see the shot of both of yours I have never seen a feline selfie before, William.

  35. It's a little known fact that ginger cats are the craziest. Lovely shots of a lovely cat.

  36. Great post! Harry is most obviously a superior life form. It always makes me happy when I find out that my friends like cats. That makes you a superior life form as well.
