Description

Thought I would take the finger (paw) prints of the nightly trespassers. But they have generally been stepping or jumping over these new objects on their runway. But early this morning this cat starts to place one paw in the ink, but must have felt the damp surface and doesn't finish putting that fore-paw down but moves it forward a few centimetres before placing it. It is balanced so well that this mis-step doesn't seem to make any difference to the cats overall motion (see animated second photo). So the paw print is only of a couple of toes and a bit of fur.

Description

A mammal footprint (cat?) immortalised crossing this concrete section of the Waikato river tail.

Note in this case that the date is when I took the photo, not when the animal was here walking across wet cement.

Didn't expect to find this in the area. No houses for miles, but there it was looking intently into the weeds. With the number of predators at this wildlife area I wouldn't expect this cat to last long.

I don't know what this cat was seeing in the grass but it was completely fixated. I waited around hoping it was a mouse or something but there was nothing I could see.

Suspect it came from the garden just down the path.

Description from Wikipedia

The domestic cat (Felis catus or Felis silvestris catus) is a small, usually furry, domesticated, and carnivorous mammal. It is often called the housecat when kept as an indoor pet, or simply the cat when there is no need to distinguish it from other felids and felines. Cats are often valued by humans for companionship and their ability to hunt vermin and household pests.
