The black cat looks like a male. That has lost a few fights.

A male ?
I don't know which it is a male or a female.
They always use "she" when they talk about their unknown cats in English. LOL !
Japanese language has no gender and we only use "that" "this" or something else without gender expression.

こんにちは!
猫って可愛いですよね。
今まで何度となく悲しい別れをして来たので今は我が家には居ませんが・・・
可愛い子猫を見ると連れて帰ろうか、どうしようか、何時も心の中で格闘しています。
残り少ない人生、取り残されたら可哀想と思い何時も後ろ髪引かれる思いで帰って来るのですが。
動物を捨てる人の気持ちが分りません。

Female cats rarely fight among themselves. If you look at the black cat you will not that it has a shredded ear. This usually suggests a male cat. Its oveall shape also points to the cat being a male. A female cat walks differently.

こんにちは、匿名さん
(お好きなHN使えますよ)
昔は棄てられても猫が生きていける余裕みたいなものが街にはありましたね。
ゴミ箱とか。
野良猫に餌をやってもそんなに迷惑でもなかった。
ゴミが増えて、ゴミの管理が厳しくなったら猫は食べ物が手に入らなくなったし、野良猫が増えると困るから餌をやるなと言われても与え続けて近隣とトラブルになる人もいる。
最後まで飼えないのなら、最初から飼わなければ良いのにね。

御免なさい。
名前にチェック入れたと思ったのですが・・・匿名になっていましたか?

私の知っているいる人に流行で動物を飼う人がいます。
余り近付きたくない人です。
ますます人間嫌いになります。
どんどん人のいないほうに進んで行きます。
周りから見ると結構変わり者になっていたりして・・・
良いのです、わが道を行きます。

こんばんわ。
さっそく、押しかけてきました。
黒猫さんの美しい肢体に息をのみました。
野生と言っていいのかどうか、わかりませんが。
自然の中で生きている猫は美しいですねえ。
厳しいこともたくさんあるのでしょうが。
あの美しさには感動しました。
ええもん、見せてもろておおきにです。

syou3さんでしたか。
>流行で
ハスキーが流行って、その後あの大型犬を棄てる人が増えたことがありますね。
今はチワワが流行ってます。
日本人って、なんでああなんだろう。

あの黒猫、綺麗でしょう。
座っている写真も撮ったのですが、うっかり消してしまいました。
雌だと思ったのですが、Garryさんが、「耳が裂けているから、喧嘩の傷だ。あれは雄だ。」って。

I should make a point of checking my facts before commenting on anything when you are involved. You are sharp and notice errors.

I had always assumed red cats were male always.

I remember when I was a kid in Northern Alberta Canada and discussing Japan. There were two main things about our conversation. we loved the Japanese oranges that used to come in wooden boxes at Christmas time. I remember that there were 23 oranges in a box and each orange was wrapped in green paper. The second thing was that if we dug a hole through the earth we would come up somewhere in Japan since Japan was on the other side of the world from us.

JunM さんのコメント...

The number of 23 sounds odd.
It was not two dozens. But to Japanese 23 is a reasonable number.
Odd numbers are thought as better than even numbers when you gift something to the others in Japan.
Numbers which can be divided by two are thought as bad in Japan.
I don't know why, but maybe samurai's thoughts.
They must have thought of Hara-kiri.

speaking of marriage.... In canada we have japanese visitors. Many come to Prince Edward Island to see the place where the author of Anne of Green Gable lived....

Another group, marriage minded, come to Northern Canada to marry under the Northern lights....

Perhaps you could explain these reasons.....

The only stories I know about Japan were those written by James Clavell. Like many here, I became very interested, but then life took over and I forgot this interest. I must take it up again.

JunM さんのコメント...

I don't know about James Clavell at all. Perhaps most Japanese don't know him.

Anne of Green Gable is a dream to Japanese girls. Pretty girls, beautiful scenaries in Canada and their life sounds fun to us.
Boys don't read it. If your girlfriend wants to visit Prince Edward Island you should obey her. LOL!
One of my old friend has been a die-hard Anne's fan. She decorated her own house like Anne's world and went on a trip to Prince Edward Island with her daughters when she visited the east coast of the US, when her husband worked in NYC.
In my living town there is a coffee shop which was built as if like Anne's house.
I guess the owner of that shop is a woman.

About Nothern lights we can't see it in our country.
Tourist companies give their customers a trip to see Nothern lights in Canada or Scandinavia.
Travel fee is expensive but if you will have a wedding in a beautiful place you will pay so much for trip.
Women decide and men obey them. LOL !
