This little cat was chasing a bird up a tree at the Orchid Hotel at Mauna Lani. She was so cute and friendly I couldn't help but take her picture. (And No, she didn't catch the bird). The day before I was sitting by the pool at the same hotel and a little black and gray tabby jumped right up on my lounge and started purring.
We have lots and lots of feral cats on the Big Island. Many of them are trapped, neutered and returned to their "colony" to be fed by a volunteer each day. Many of the hotels control their cat population this way, feeding them at night after all the restaurants are closed and guests are tucked away for the night. You usually don't see them but occasionally one is brave enough to mingle with the guests. Another reason to love the Big Island!
