Cat Matata

Cat Matata

Candid and not a "SET PHOTOGRAPH" of cat Matata on his "Suicidal Prowls" outside the Kitchen window in Vaibhav Apts (Mumbai). A slip could mean a fall 5 floors below. He is seen getting back into the kitchen on seeing me approaching with the camera. Total bizarre behaviour by my cat, doesn't understand the word "FEAR" and the same applies to his mother "Matahari".

He has learnt and copied all the bad traits of his mother "Matahari". As I work from home and my camera always at the alert I managed to capture some very candid photograph of my cats, absolutely bizarre behaviour.(...Photgraphed Tuesday 2-2-2010 at approx 1430hrs).

I have posted a video of cat Matata sitting on the same kitchen window opening which I had taped some months ago in 2009.

Rudolph, I think you are going to have to do something! Maybe move to a bungalow!

I love your cats but I would hate to see one fall. I really would because I have got to know them. I love them.

What a lovely looking cat. It is amazing how fearless they are. I suppose thats why they need 9 lives.

  1. This is the latest video of “Tomcat Matata” at the age of 8 ++ years on the kitchen window ledge.I am helpless in preventing him friom exhibiting this death defying act over the years since i posted his first video which shocked readers and viewers.Matata definitely has 9 Cat lives and i do shut this window to prevent him from regularly climbing to his favourite viewing spot 5 floors above the ground in Mumbai city.
