I was asked to photograph a local feral cat colony the other day. Most of the cats were actually quite used to humans, as they seemed to spend a lot of time around the owner of the farm where the colony was located. But this cat was truly feral…it was hiding out in the barn and regarded me with deep suspicion. After a few frames it retreated back between the hay bales. The missing corner on the right ear (viewer’s left) means that it has been fixed. Photographed on August 12, 2008.
