Default Pictures of a stray cat colony (with a raccoon)

So I started helping some cat ladies take care of a bunch of cats in their house as a second job, and I also help them with two stray cat colonies (right nearby each other). Yesterday I got some pics.

Buff and white cat (has something wrong with his back foot, limps bad)


Same cat


Same cat with a brown tabby in the background.


Random calico


Skinner and the cat with a limp


They call her Skinner because she's old and skinny. She's like the colony grandmother. She greets most of the cats with head bumps. I'm going to talk to FOHA about taking her and the cat with the limp. If they can't, I'll talk to some other cat rescues.




Cats chillin' in the road.




Cute fluffy kitty

I like this guy's grey mustache. He's a big guy, and pretty too.




And this is Conner.


And this is another buff & white cat. There's three different ones. I think this is the saddest look on a cat I've ever seen.





And this is Little Grey Kitty. Once he warms up to you, he's very sweet and loves pets (he hasn't warmed up to me yet though).




And then, I go just up the street to the other stray colony, which only has four cats (and a raccoon, lol). Here's an orange tabby.


Buff & white hiding under the picnic table.




Few more!

Handsome black fella (or girl, dunno)






And then the raccoon joined them for dinner. *sings* One of these things is not like the other...






Done!

Skinner has the most stunning and arresting eyes. She looks very wise, I so hope you can get her a home. If I could have a cat (I love the old stay cats... they often really really appreciate the comforts of home life)

I just emailed the cat intake person at FOHA about them, so we'll see what she says.

How wonderful your helping out. I've always wanted to help take care of a colony.

Do they TNR these cats?

I was wondering the same thing. With a lot of cats that are missing an ear tip I was wondering if thats how they 'marked' them after being vetted.

Thats how they mark them here. Last summer I trapped a bunch from a 15 cat colony in the neighborhood. It was $10 to rent the traps. Then they got spayed or neutered, spent a night in the garage. And then were re released. Local shelter offers the services. I still take in the occasional stray.

But yeah with the ferals they clip the tip of one ear.

Yes, they are all spayed and neutered. Some other group came and did that a while back. I don't know why they didn't keep at least some of them, I wouldn't classify any as totally feral.
