Senera shared this photo on the Wikipedia Commons. She has wonderful cat photo albums posted at
In this photo, she says: "Saphiri on the right showing the "new bad cat" that it's her garden...;) NBC is shut out of her house day and night, is very lonely, always hanging around causing trouble, I feel so sorry for her (him) he just wants love and company, it is very important for animals to have companions....unfortunately ours are very territorial, and NBC is vicious."

Part 2 in the Cats in Gardens portrayed in art series.
This is "Young Girl with Cat" by Nicola Marschall. It dates to 1859 and is in the collection of the Morris Museum of Art, Georgia.
This youg cat is clearly not happy about sitting for a portrait and the young girl herself looks on the edge of wildness, just barely keeping it together. The garden itself is an interesting mix as well-- a carefully arranged urn of cut flowers with a shrub border to the rear.

This is the first in a series of cats in gardens portrayed by artist throughout the ages.
The garden cat above is "Gukjeong chumyo" (Autumn cat in a garden with chrysanthemum) painted by Byeon Sang-byeok. Thought to date from 1730.
There is something very intriguing about this cat's face. Why do you think he is smiling?
