Happy ST. Is this a guard cat or a violator of the sign? From the expression it could be either. Do not mess with the cat.
I value your comments.

Well spotted... and I'm thinking he may not have posted the sign, but if you trespass you'll have to answer to him!

¿Habrán dejado al lindo gato junto con el cartel
para cuidar el lugar? Por la postura parece que
lo estuviera haciendo... Seguro que vive en ese
lugar y donde se ha subido es su lugar favorito.
Linda imagen, con hermosos colores..***** Buen día.

Avec l'inscription, c'est bien drôle! Mais il y a aussi l'autre cadrage qui ne prend en considération que le chat et les tonalités oranges de l'arbre.
Bonne journée lumineuse!

Wonderful shot with plenty of character ! I like how the sign and the Cat pull the viewer right into the scene ! Rich landscape colors and the wood beam all make for a perfect frame !!

Very cute ! A clever framing and shot. I think this is an "autumn" cat - the same colour as the leaves behind.
