A common domestic shorthair would fit what you are looking for, in terms of short fur, and be very easy to find :). However, as a warning, all cats shed, and need to be brushed regularly to keep...

Hazel - The tanager and the warbler are stunning. And that's a good close up of the sparrow.

The swallows are too fast for me to catch in flight (so far anyway) but will occasionally oblige by perching and sitting still. The speckled bird is, if I'm identifying it right, a female red wing...

Another wading bird. I'm not sure of the exact species. A family of mallards in front, and a mother wood duck and her baby in the back.

I have some more to share. The river is only a 10-15 minute walk away, and these are some of my favourite sightings. Starting off, the great blue heron.

I'm so glad to hear that everything has gone back to normal. It is much more fun owning a cat who likes you instead of one that ignores you.

It may not be the harness that set him off. You say he was in a window sill when he attacked you? And he's not neutered?

The only difference between reading the HTML and the epub is that you miss the illustrations.
If you have a computer, you can download Adobe digital editions (free) and use it to read epubs.
