Orange Half-Tail, Feral Cat Photo of the Day

Orange Half-Tail


Part of the peculiar genetics in the local feral cat colonies... Not too long ago, I was finally able to share a picture of Gray Half-Tail guy. Now we have Orange Half-tail. There are several bobtail kitties among the ferals but they may be the only half-tailed cats.

The first bobtails we saw were among the first kittens to be rescued. Of course, the colony existed long before I was here so it's hard to say how far back one would find this genetic variant.
