Garden Cats

The Brunswick Street Community Garden is populated by a big kitty family. Over the years, I've seen wacky little kittens grow into very relaxed cats, right at home in our urban garden oasis. Sometimes they mistake the garden plots for giant litter boxes (especially in the spring after the soil has been tilled) but for the most part they are a pleasant addition to the landscape. 

The majority of the cats are mostly white with either gray tabby spots or black spots (like these two friendly guys).  There's also a very nervous all black shorthair and a long hair guy who is perpetually fighting matted fur in the summer. They are all fixed (I think) and when a new one shows up a cat caretaker in the garden traps, fixes, and releases the kitty before the population can expand.
