These neighborhood cats are Neko and Tara, or, as D. and I call them, Necco and Wafer because we have a hard time remembering Tara's name. Neko and Tara live nearby with Dharma.
Neko is a beautiful something-point. Blue point? (Some cat breeds have become awfully "pointy" and I can't keep track of them all.)
Tara responds to D.'s attempt to make friends.
Perhaps she's offended that we call her Wafer instead of remembering her name is Tara.
