The Old Feral Tom Cat
by Jan Plant
The Battle Scarred Warrior
I'm not sure where this old warrior came from. He looks fairly good here. When he first showed up he was very thin and would only come to feed in the dark. The last couple of weeks he's been coming at breakfast and allowing me to actually get a bit closer.
He's actually responsible for Splitter and his litter mates coming here. He stood out by the underside of our deck and called. I heard it but at the time didn't understand it until the kittens jumped up on the deck.
He's a wily ol' gent. Been trying to trap him for months. As you can probably see he could really use some vet care. But so far he's managed to escape all of our ideas. But I won't give up. This pitiful looking ol'guy is the only one of the "wild Bunch" that isn't neutered.
Which causes problems as other intact toms come around from time to time and the fur flies. I generally use a pot and wooden spoon to bang 'em off! LOL! I'm sure that's a sight to the other cats.
If anyone could give me a guess-ta-ment on his age that would be great. I'm pretty sure if I ever do get him in a trap I'll need two pairs of welders gloves! LOL!
More from Jan about the "wild bunch"...
Hi Jan.... I changed to title as inverted commas don't work to well for file names and the title becomes the file name. Hope that is OK. I actually liked your title.....Michael
