This little fellow was on the other side of the windowless window, in
the same space as the enormous reclining Buddha that is one of the
most striking features of this temple in Thailand's ancient capital
Ayutthaya. I called him over to get him and the head of the Buddha in
the same frame and he was happy to oblige.
This was a happy, healthy cat, interested in people.
What Phutai Sawan is a wonderful serene place well worth a visit. The highlight is a central prang that has been painted white. Inside the actual prang are two interesting Buddha footprints and a reclining Buddha image that hides in the back. There are galleries of Buddha images on all sides of the compound. There is also a mural painted on a wall depicting Thai monks on pilgrimage to Sri Lanka in 1753 and 1755. A beautiful reclining Buddha rests outside of the compound on the eastern side (in this photo).
I was sorry to miss just the tips of his claws on the left paw.
