My Sleeping Beauty

Cute cat . This cat, comes everyday and keeps on saying Meow Meow always and the way it looks , the innocent look, it steals my heart. Usually i stay away from it , because i am scared of dog and cat bite. 2 dogs and 3 cats are regular at my place, Even if I shoo them they will come again and again . Then i started bringing pedigree for them to eat so when the dog comes it will either knock on gate with their head and the cat will sit near the door most of the time . Generally it sleeps on the door mat touching my door ...hahaha ..no one can come in and no one can go out , it will act like the boss of the house. I was watering the plants so it went and slept on the compound wall, this was the first and last time i saw it sleeping on the compound wall so peacefully. Now it sleeps on the door mat as usual.
