I saw a cat and a dog walking to each other, and being friendly and playful. The moment I pointed my camera to capture that rare moment of two animals that are known to be violent when they are in close proximity, they turned and walked away from each other. I sighed. Sometimes we just have to react quick enough when we see the opportunity, any sense of hesitation will be consequential.
Nonetheless, as the cat laid down on a wooden table next to where a weighing scale was, I knew somehow the image would look strange if it was sitting on the weighing scale. I did not pay much attention and proceeded to shoot the other subjects around me. As I turned back to look at the cat, there it was sitting comfortably on the weighing scale. The the dog came approaching. I framed the cat so that the dog was in the background. Though both animals were not extremely near to each other but the they were close enough to show the acceptance of one another's existence. Not something you see everyday, especially when it comes to street animals. I then whistled so that the cat would turn its head to my direction, and as I saw the cat's eyes, I snapped a photo or two.

I liked the way the cat's front leg being rested off the edge of the steel plate. It showed the cat being in a comfortable position, yet the perched up ears told us that the cat was attracted to something (my whistling of course) and was being what a cat was best at: curious.
So how much does a cat weigh? Approximately 1.2 Kg.
