This Jesmond Cat Wishes He Had the Power of Flight
Jesmond’s cat population brighten up the community simply by their presence. You’ll often walk around and be confronted by a friendly purr and a gentle tinkle. This moggie, spotted on Thursday on St. George’s Terrace, seemed unusually focused compared to the usual outgoing type of cat you see in and around the area.
Despite any amount of cajoling and whistling, the cat wasn’t diverting its attention from whatever was in the hedge.
And it became clear why: two jackdaws were busy up in the branches of the tree, feathering themselves and building a nest.
And still our feline friend sits waiting to pounce. But he’s unlikely to get anywhere – simply because of the anatomical drawbacks of being a humble household cat.
A cat can dream, though.
