Back at work today — long day, therefore a very short story in one photo.

I had the window open while doing my morning practice. My cat started huffing loudly. Outside the window was another cat. They stared at each other for about five minutes.

My kid thinks she was trying to tell this cat to get off her territory.

I think she wishes she had a friend.

What do you think?
