Village Cats

Whenever you visit a Russian Village you are bound to see many cats. Some will be homeless and feral, others will have nice home and be reasonably well fed. Here are photos of cats in Vacha, a small town about 100 kilometers from Nizhny Novgorod. These photos were taken in 2005.

This is Karen and her friend. The cat belongs to the pastor of the small church in Vacha. Karen is sitting in their kitchen.

Here is the home of the pastor. A large room at the back serves as the church.

We had a group cookout one evening. This guy was one of the uninvited guests.

Here he is, drinking for the bucket of water which we used to brew tea.

One morning, we got up early, took a walk through the village and Karen snapped this photo.

The cat below actually lived in a tiny village in the middle of nowhere. The whole village consisted of 6 cabins.
