Welcome to another Caturday. Some new alien cat sightings this week!
But first, a relaxed cat inside the shelter:
Even more relaxed:
Perhaps too relaxed — almost fell off, but scrambled up:
On to the parade of aliens. Firstly, the alien gray cat (with a collar) we’ve seen before:
A new alien cat; at first glance looks like one of our ferals, but is a bit larger, and doesn’t have they ear-tip marking as a fixed feral:
The orange cat:
Speaking of, the orange cat went inside the shelter, and was followed by a possum. They had a bit of an encounter, and the orange cat chased off the possum:
Another new alien cat:
There certainly are a lot of cats in the area! We keep our two pet cats (Pippin and Paladin) indoors, for their safety, but it seems many of our neighbors don’t. Growing up in New Zealand, it was standard to have cat doors and let them go outside at will, but there are a lot more dangerous wildlife in the US. Not only the possums and raccoons, but coyotes and several others.
The outdoor ferals are a different case; they grew up outside; it is their home. But they have a much more dangerous life. I do what I can to make it more comfortable for them, by providing the heated shelter and feeder.
Anyway, enough seriousness; let’s have some cuteness. A peeking cat:
Porcini was early for breakfast:
Four cats at breakfast time (one is mostly hidden behind the others):
A cat nose from above the camera housing:
Three cats outside. Can’t see the third? look in the field to the left of the cat house:
