Nevertheless, when I walked around the streets in Jakarta, I often encountered cats. On the other hand, dogs were rarely seen wandering around carefree. The only animals you'll encounter in this city are cats. It seems to me that it's not just because dogs are considered impure animals in the Muslim world.
As I walked into the alley I had found, there was nothing of the shops and no sign of the people. But on closer inspection, there was a lone cat lying in the corner of such a narrow alley. I didn't know if it's feral instinct or just my distraction, but before I could notice the cat, it noticed me and was wary of me coming down the alleyway with a camera in hand. It seemed that it was just sitting up with its upper body and staring at me, trying to figure out what the hell I was.
When I pointed my camera at him, the cat's alertness didn't change at all. Judging from experience, I'm the only one who wants to approach and befriend, and I'm pretty sure the cat doesn't think so. How can I get my cat to like me? I went as close as I could, just before the cat would run away, and quietly shuttered the photo.
