Diamond Head Kitty

When we were in Hawai'i last November, I didn't just investigate the feral cat population on Maui, oh no. Your intrepid blogger also monitored the cat situation on the island of O'ahu.


Relax on Waikiki Beach in Honolulu? Not when there are cats to be found! See Diamond Head volcano in the distance? My Rare One and I listened to our intuition and took a tourist trolley to the top of it. Guess what we found?

Yes, a small black kitty patrolling the top of Diamond Head crater, supervising the tourists in a very dignified fashion.


Despite our diligence, however, this was the only feral or stray cat that we saw on O'ahu. But what a cutie!

Crater Cat is on duty, and doing a great job.

What would you do of if you caught one? Fly it home?

I'm glad you like the calendar pages.Being in the south, I am not a huge hockey fan, but I like to watch the playoffs. I grew in Nashville, so I may have to say the Predators if you made me choose.

Don't cats show up in the most unlikely places? he looks very poised and self-assured, as all the best kitties do!

Off in search of the elusive Diamond Head Kitty sounds like much more fun than relaxing amid the sweaty, lotion covered people on the beach!
And a most regal Kitty was found! I see Kitty is pondering Life just like the gentleman next to him.

But what an important job that kitty had!

One word: Awesome.

This kitty probably has it easier than some others, living in paradise and all!

The kitties were probably undercover, dressed up as tourists. Hm, are you sure that is not black fur on a ninja--I've herd they are sneaky.

P.S. Your comments on my post and Robin's made laugh like a loon ;-)

So regal looking. He looks like he's just sitting there listening to everything as intently as the visitors. What a cool guy!

Awww...so cute! I have a black cat that looks exactly like that, but the one you saw on your trip has a job, at least, unlike mine that sleeps all day and is treated like the queen she believes to be.

Guard Cat. Keeping himself between you and whatever danger lurks behind that not so secure orange fence!

Riot Kitty said...

What a cute one indeed! I have heard the stray cats there get all kinds of goodies from restaurants.

Imagine being 'brought up' next to and in a volcano crater!
