I spotted this cat on an upstairs windowsill on one such walk. He/She was sitting upright surveying the neighbourhood in a way that only a cat can; until I approached when the cat adopted a more wary poise and my every move was scrutinised with a fixed stare.
An hour later the cat was still on the windowsilll, motionless. The upper left window is open giving the cat a means of access to the interior of the house (when finally it became bored), although I would have thought that accessing the windowsill via that window would have been a somewhat trickier manoeuvre. (What a strangely spelt word that last one is in the English version – the American version ‘maneuver’ doesn’t look much better either).
