Charlie, The Friendly Neighbor Cat.


I am lucky to have really nice neighbors. Living in close proximity to four other families is not easy. But we manage to make it work.
My house is one of 5 chain-houses, positioned in a L-shape, creating a serene courtyard. The design of the buildings is very interesting, with large windows, multitude of levels, airy spaces and spectacular views. Built according to an extraordinary design, it attracts extraordinary people as well.
My neighbors are all animal loves, which means that Batcat has neighbors too. There are several cats in the neighborhood and one of them is Charlie, who stopped by today.
Charlie is a beautiful Norwegian Forest Cat and an outdoor cat as well. Batcat is not. As I live in close proximity to a major road, I decided to keep him inside, which suits both of us just fine.
Today Charlie came for his familiar daily visit. He will usually sit in front of the back or the main door and stare in. My cat will then stare back and they will sit giving each other long stares for quite a while.

Charlie is a beauty! Norwegian Forest cat--just the name evokes beauty.
(the Maine Coon Cat looks somewhat similar)

Wow, Charlie's fur is amazing! Batcat doesn't get upset when Charlie stops by?

BTW, thanks for fanning me on Facebook!!

Gorgeous kitty. No hissing between them?

Diane, you know you are welcome at anytime.;) The guest room is ready.;)

Tina, Charlie would be happy for that compliment.;) Yes it is a similar breed to Main Coon.;)

Hazel, sometimes my cat will scratch the glass between them and growl.;) But most of the time they just stare.;)

Hilary, no hissing, but then again, they have not been really face to face, so to speak.;)
