376: Cat on park bench
During my ten years in Belo Horizonte, I’ve spent a lot of time in Parque Municipal, the century-old city park in the heart of the capital of Minas Gerais. I was often found in the butterfly garden, in order to photograph the colorful flowers and the graciously hovering butterflies. Or I was sitting along the pond, observing the waterbirds and the people passing by. Sometimes, I sat on a bench, reading a book. On such an occasion, a big black-and-white approached me and jumped on the bench. He strided towards me and settled himself down next to me. He allowed me to stroke his head and ears. Obviously, one of his ears had a big hole in the middle. I was wondering about what might have caused this big hole, but I still have no clear explanation.
