Old Tortie Girl

Old Tortie, a tortoise shell feral cat story
She's been around a long time. You can see one ear is clipped and she's gotten a little chubby over the years - but that's really nice to see on a feral cat.

Ol' Tortie Girl has almost gotten tame over the years. Not quite, but enough to where she will come up to me to ask for food... and not leave until she gets it.

In a feral cat colony like this, nobody is here forever. Come to think of it, none of us are here forever, or even the amount of time we were expecting. I feel sad when we lose cats I know and I will definitely feel sad when Ol' Tortie Girl is gone. She's not a pet, but she is a friend.
