Temple Cats, With Attitude
In Japan, neko and temples go together like fish guts and beer, and every graveyard attracts a cadre of cats to guard the departed. At first I tried not to think about what they might be eating to make them so fat and happy (DO NOT GO THERE) until I was lurking around taking pictures late one afternoon, and witnessed the duelling cat ladies. Suffice it to say, these graveyard kittehs’ hunting regimen seems to consist mostly of stalking the wild kibble.
In any case, here they are in all their ornery glory: the few, the proud, the temple cats.
