Wait a Minute Mr. Postman


I've seen this cat wandering happily through the stands on busy Farmer's Market days, but hadn't realized just how gregarious she was until I watched her follow this mail carrier all the way down this row of houses and around the corner. She obviously knew the daily routine, and sometimes took shortcuts to the next porch in order to intercept him with leg-rubs and tripping opportunities. I was unforgivably unhelpful, and asked, "Is that your cat?" to which the carrier replied, clearly in defeat and without irony, "yes".

Mail delivery seems like a lonely jog. So nice of the cat to keep him company.

Jog? Not quite! Make that JOB.

What a fascinating photo and story. Can't imagine a cat doing this. Lovely shot. Clever friendly cat.

c'est mignon, le chat lui tient compagnie et lui montre le chemin ;o)
it is cute, the cat keeps company him and shows him the way

Hee! Do you think it's really his cat or just an adopted cat during his route? :)

Thank you all for your comments. 8^D

Jilly - This is why I'm also a cat person, not only a dog person. ;^)

Halcyon - It is not his cat, it just acts like it is on this portion of the carrier's route. She probably does the same sort of thing with the paper boy.
