Description

The third, less regular, trespasser, last seen on http://naturewatch.org.nz/observations/1686156 (24 June 2015).

The top of this wall holds a fascination for a couple of these cats, so I presume that's where rats and mice reside.

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.
