There is a plaque attached to the wall at Belfast Castle,
as you start to walk down the steps into the garden that reads
"The Cat Garden"
"It is said that good fortune will come to those visiting Belfast Castle as long as the tradition of the castle cat is kept. The story goes that there has always been a resident white cat at the castle and the gardens below celebrate this tale with nine references made to the cat in paving, sculpture and garden furniture."
Cat One - TS Eliot quotation cat
Now I don't know that there is a white cat in residence any longer...
But I thought it would be fun to photograph all of the "cats" in the gardens.
Cat Two - Topiary cat
I think this cat is so elegant that I just couldn't resist photographing it from every angle.
