i'm surprised you were able to photograph it
Tom Wilson: Zoom lens, Sherri smile
A nice photo Tom, I hope he/she doesn't have too bad a life.
Tom Wilson: It looked reasonably healthy, but I doubt if these cats live to be more than six or so.

This is excellent, Tom.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Ray.
Awe - poor thing must have a difficult life... She looks like she has a bit of a mangy nose...
Tom Wilson: Yes, I don't think it's a happy life for any feral cat.

No doubt another of life's survivors Tom
Tom Wilson: A case of survive or die for these poor felines.

I can’t believe just how much sleep cats seem to need Tom. Someone told me it was 14 hours a day.
Tom Wilson: I've read that it is 16 to 18 hours, and Sassy, now approaching his 17th birthday seems to sleep at least 20 of the 24
Sad to see but she would probably be impossible to domesticate now
Tom Wilson: Probably - in this particular village, the cats seemed to be reasonably well-fed, so I guess someone is looking after them.
Feral cats make me sad. Poor puss.
Tom Wilson: Yes, it's really a shame - I think that anyone who is not a registered breeder should be required to neuter their cats.
