These are all stray cats, so i guess they don't go in the pets section. Hope you don't mind/like having them here.

Interesting series, well shot, and I agree with your choice of B&W.

My wife and I both lived in Indonesia for a number of years. It is an amazing country. You captured some of its beauty in its people. We never did spend much time in Jakarta since we lived in East Java.

Just the other day, we had a conversation about cats in Indonesia..... we didn't remember seeing any cats there. Dogs, yes but no cats. It was nice to see photographs of them. I'm sure they were there all along, esp. in Bali but somehow they are not in either of our memories.

Our plan B for retirement is to move to Bali and live up in the mountains somewhere. Since we both speak the language, it will be a nice place to retire. The people are great and the scenery.... breathtaking.

Apa kabar, Kim? :-) Perhaps you didn't live in Indonesia long enough. Unlike dogs, cats (like the ones shown in this thread) are rarely kept as pets. They normally come out at night, roam around the alleys looking for food. There are lots of them where I grew up (Jakarta).

I can never forget that night I got attacked by one of those alley cats. As I walked out of my neighbor's house, I turned around as soon as I opened the door. Facing the door, I gently swung the door close. Then I took 1 step back to lock the door. Suddenly I heard *MEOW*... we both jumped out of pain. The cat scratched and bit my foot before running away. I bet it was just as shocked as I was, getting stepped on while relaxing on the doorstep. I had no idea why it wouldn't move out of my way. They normally would run away whenever they get too close to human. I didn't see the cat until it was too late.

The cats are generally concentrated around markets for the scraps. The fish market had A LOT of cats :)

I miss living in Asia, as i moved to Australia a few years ago. Perth is still close, so i can catch a short flight occassionally to Bali or Jakarta for very little. Good luck with your move to Bali!

nice and interesting series, well done on the photos :)

now these cats, they do come around in the residential neighborhood as well. they'll sit/sleep under your car or hang out on the roofs. they'll also try to 'communicate' with you when you sit on your terrace. sometimes all what they want is a small petting under the chin or on their back or most of the time would be a piece of food :p

Kabar baik, morph.

We both love Indonesia. It is difficult to explain this to Americans who often believe the only country in the world worth living in is the US. The US is fine but Indonesia has its own unique charms. For me, the food is the best in the world... so much variety. And the various fruit seasons..... you just can't explain this. How can you communicate a taste? I know I can't.

That and there are so many different cultures within each island with even greater differences island to island. I love that.

Couldn't agree with you more, Kim. I crave for the food every now and then. Luckily there are many Indonesian restaurants in LA. It doesn't taste exactly the same but close enough to satisfy my craving. And the various tropical fruit... I gotta stop talking about this (I'm drooling now.. sorry).
