Scenes from the city
Saturday afternoon, around 4 o’clock; corner of Elizabeth and Little Lonsdale streets, almost in front of the Melbourne Central building. A girl stands on the corner, one hand help up high holding the copies of the “Big Issue” she’s trying to sell to uninterested passers-by. The other hand holds a leash, and the other end of the leash holds… a cat.
Very beautiful cat, by the way, and apparently more successful at attracting the attention of the pedestrians than the girl and her magazines (sadly); was that her intention, maybe? It seemed a little scared, though, shying away from people who got too close.
I wonder if she sold the magazines; I’d never seen her around before, and she wasn’t there when I came back around one hour later.
