Photo conundrum answers!

#1. These little gizoms are seals shipping and customs agents use to secure the doors on those huge-o metal containers you see being carried on cargo ships. I'm guessing that because so many longshoremen live in the area that some migrated to the chains on the lookout point. As of today, there are six hanging there. They're impossible to remove without breaking 'em....

#2. A trick question, as dal and justfly were quick to spot. There are actually nine cats in the photo, but two -- both black -- are obscured by the bushes (one in in the foreground, behind and to the left of the tortoiseshell cat, and the other to the left of the third cat from the bottom of the photo) and therefore shouldn't be counted.

So there are seven cats in the picture. Plus two invisible cats. And of course that's not counting the other three who were down the hill and out of camera range....

I was going to suggest 7, but I read the quiz too late. The big white spot in the middle I thought might be one, too.

Hay, your place is dangerous for a little birdie!! tweet tweet

OK. So I got both right. That's exactly what I was trying to say.
