Old Tortie Girl

old tortie - tortoiseshell feral cat
In the previous post, you saw a group of feral cats hanging out and keeping an eye on me. She led that pack.

It feels like she's been around forever.  At maybe 8 or 9, she's an old lady for a feral cat. She's not tame, but she is no longer interested in expending the energy to run away when I approach. Instead, she'll just move quietly, slowly out of the way. If she were a pet, she wouldn't considered terribly old, but life is different for ferals.

Having said all that, I want to point out that she has a great coat, and is a little chubby, so I guess she's doing okay overall.  Old tortie girl never misses any meals, that's for sure! She just leads a quiet, unassuming life.
