Tough-looking Punk Tom Cat

Tough-Looking Punk Tom Cat

Punk Tom looks so tough! He's really a pussycat, though. He tries his best to avoid people. Anyway, I hadn't taken his picture for a while so I thought it was about time.

Punk is probably middle-aged, I guess. I've lost track but I think he's around 7 or 8 years old - pretty old for a feral cat. He never misses a feeding but in general prefers to avoid people.

He's one of the more unique-looking cats of the feral colony. We think his look is due to fighting injuries, rather than genetics - but we do see some rather odd genes in the feral colonies, too. You can see other stories about him by clicking on the Punk Tom tag ...yes, he's so interesting that he has his own tag on this blog!
