Secret Scotland

If it's secret, and in Scotland…

Long lost cat (Parkhead)

Filing away some recent pics (the lost cat posters), I came across an old one and since I’m on a lost cat poster roll, guess I should mention it.

I didn’t get around to using it after noticing it was dated – and the date was ONE YEAR earlier than the day I noticed the poster and tool a pic when I passed it. This was on Springfield Road, near the houses that had been built there recently (recognisable behind the pic of the cat).

The cat was lost for a year (since July 2015), but the poster and the tape looked brand new in July 2016 when I took the pic.

Coming across the pic again (I’d forgotten all about it) more than a year later, I guess this one was not found.

Catbutt and disdain – that’s all I get

Wandering the streets behind Tollcross Park, I spotted a black and white pop out of the undergrowth down the street from me.

Of course, as soon as it saw me (and my camera) it turned around and headed away, meaning all I got was the usual view.

That black smudge near the centre – it really is a cat (butt).

Disdain

Later the same day, and the above cat’s fluffier cousin must have been listening on the grapevine and decided to give me the ‘disdain’ routine when I came across it behind Gallowgate.

After about five minutes I decided to give up the game this one was playing – camera down, eye-to-eye contact… camera up, looks off to the side – and just took the pic with a profile.

“Look at a hoomin? Don’t be ridiculous!”
