Have you noticed how many orange and white cats there are in India? They seem to be a majority.
Tryskuit snuggles the kitten.
The shop owner said that the kitten had moved in about two weeks before and that he liked him. He wanted him to stay, and grow up as a store kitten.
"What is his name?" I asked.
"Cat," he answered.
Soundarya snuggles little Cat. As you can imagine, she had been feeling quite down about the calico. Yet, as hard as life is, live moves on and so she smiles again.
And she hugs her little friend. The next day, we, the humans, would all say goodbye at the Bangalore airport. There would be many hugs and tears, too. Tryskuit and I would fly home.
So that is it. For now.
Tomorrow, I head back to Alaska's Arctic Slope.
The world is forever changing before me. And always, I look to meet new cats.
