boats on the channel

With it being near 70 degrees out today, I felt I was required to at least step outside during my lunch break.  I just walked down the boardwalk and back again, before heading back in for my next program.  A longer walk would have been nice, but it was good to get out for a moment.


This is Beast.   He’s one of the most laid-back kitties I’ve ever met.  His primary person is in rehab, and his other person is homeless so Beast spends the day keeping him company. On the one hand, it’s easy to think “You know, if you can’t take care of yourself, you shouldn’t have a cat out here.”  But I know how much comfort I get from my own kitties, and I’d hate to deprive someone of that.  Either way, Beast is clearly well fed, clean, cared for and seems content.  As with many issues around homeless people, it’s not as simple as it appears.
