But Hammie just moved on, no need for trouble here among rescued feral cats. Hammie, like Frankie, required rescue when very young so they could have been someone's pet if a home had been available. They are shy and suspicious of strangers but are otherwise tame. Hammie's bobcat-like appearance is just adorable and Frankie is a major talker!

He survived his abandonment and almost-too-late rescue, and has grown up to be a healthy, happy cat. Hammie continues to prowl the brush and field...
