I first encountered Bingo years ago, when I noticed a cat who was often looking down on the ground instead of looking up. It turned out that Bingo always looked at the ground because he loved chasing the reflection off anything, whether it was from your camera or your watch. He was one of the original front courtyard cats who loved chasing the laser.

According to records, he arrived in June, 2002. He was trapped, along with 4 other litter mates, by a volunteer. Although he is a quiet and friendly cat, he generally doesn’t make himself known, but it seems that as he has grown older, he enjoys human company more and will even climb onto your lap occasionally.

Another unique trait Bingo has is that he can sometimes be seen walking around the front courtyard carrying a sponge ball in his mouth. Unfortunately, as with most cats, he refuses to pose and in spite of many attempts, I have yet to photograph him with the ball in his mouth.
