The first two photos are of a really sweet cat that we met in one of the Nizhny Novgorod regional bus stations. She was good natured but dirty. As she shyly worked her way up from the floor, to the bench next to Karen and gradually onto Karen's lap, Karen didn't have the heart to reject the request for attention. What's a little mud on your clothes when someone needs love?
The next photos were taken in the Train.Bus station in the town of Zavolzha. We had arrived at the station by bus in the late morning, and we were waiting for a friend to meet us when we saw these nice but shy cats.
