Picture of been there, done it, got the T-shirt cat

This is a great picture of a weary street cat with the look of a wary human. His expression is very human. You can look into his soul and what you find is a cat who has been there, done it and got the T-shirt. He has been around the block to use another well-worn phrase.

What a face. Humanesque. Picture: Feline Care Cat Rescue.

His name is Wolfy. I can see why. There is a slight resemblance to a wolf. He was a stray cat around the Norwich airport (UK) for ten years. Ten years surviving on his own. He is a resourceful boy.

He was injured which lead to volunteers wanting to trap him to help. They set a trap for a mum and kitten and caught him instead.

His injury had healed naturally and did not require treatment. Although he had a bad ear infection which must have been very uncomfortable. As at March 5th the infection had almost cleared up so I presume he is fully cured now.


Wolfy is a big cat with a big and gentle heart. He likes to be on a lap when the opportunity arises. At 5th March Feline Care Cat Rescue were looking for a forever home for him. I hope he found one. He was popular at the rescue. I can see why. What a face.
