Muffin came to us sometime in 2008. By the way, she says this image does not do her justice…anyway Feral Cats were once domesticated but were turned out…so, technically their kittens become the real feral cats. Often they’re live-trapped and either neutered or spade and then returned to the location where they were trapped. You’ll know if a feral cat has been trapped and released by the small portion of one ear missing…the top of the ear..this is done under anesthesia so there is no pain to the animal. This helps if, by chance, they’re live-trapped again they’ll be released immediately. Muffin has become quite tame now and eagerly awaits breakfast each morning. She even stays throughout the winter. She does not enter our home. You can also see an image on my site at Fine Art America.
