At night, there are fewer humans outside. Thus the freely roaming cats of the streets can explore, huddle, congregate, with less interference from people. Sure, there still are some people out and about, and there are passing cars, but the depths of night are more their domain than ours.
Some cats seem to meditate on the path ahead.The urban nocturnal felines are not completely free of human intervention. The structures and lighting are still all there. Humans modify environments. Cats adapt. A ginger with some white splotches sits at the edge of the road. Is he waiting for a friend. Is he simply enjoying the car-less expanse of the road, uncertain whether he can just walk across it. The edge of a pool of light, the edge of night, so to speak, an ideal spot for a nocturnal creature inhabiting the world of Man. Keeping close to dark, part of its nocturnal nature, but also at the edge of light, where a human might take note, and perhaps share a morsel.
And this cat is a Winner!
