Precious, the Working Cat

by Marsha February. 16, 2020 576 views

You can’t possibly walk through the quaint little tourist/artist mecca of Manitou Springs without coming upon something interesting, unique, sometimes even bizarre. Yesterday’s stroll didn’t disappoint. This couple of street musicians and their pets were situated in a prime area. Rarely does one see cats on the streets of Manitou Springs so this attracted me, and when I inquired about the cat’s name the guy said, “Precious.” Never did hear the couple play aside from some minimal strumming, so I suspect the money you see was from kitty-lovers like me. Have no idea what was with pouring water on the dog’s head, but he didn’t seem to mind.

A beautiful street scene. Love the detail of the water on the dog's head

You might enjoy to read the book (it's also been made into a movie) A Street Cat Named Bob. I found it very moving and it gives tremendous insights into the lives of the people who you captured so well in this photo.
