These shots were taken during our recent bout of bad weather. They really don't fit in anywhere else nor are they worthy of their own posting. But I did want to share them.
This is one of Isla's wild downtown cats. Most of them look fat and sassy like this. Mostly thanks to the efforts of one woman, Lupita. She is a shop owner downtown and regularly walks around at night leaving piles of cat food for them. Which she has purchased herself. She rarely accepts donations or offers of help. I recently heard that the Mayor sicked the police on her and told her to knock it off. I can't verify this, but the Mayor thinks that it looks awful for the tourists to see her feeding wild cats. Gives out a wrong image. Yup. I agree. It is just awful to see a kind, caring person doing something nice for the homeless animals. Just disgusting. (this is the same Mayor who won't allow food vendors in the Zocolo because the tourists would find it disgusting!!!)
We were sitting at Adelita's one dark and stormy night. I was able to get this shot of water pooling on the highly waxed table tops.
