bengal kitten...

Every morning we feed our feral studio cats.  You can see the 5 black cats in the background.  Surprisingly we have one that is not like the others.  I think it resembles what they call a bengal cat.  They're enjoying slightly less heat.  We think they have all recovered from the spay and neuter surgeries that the Tucson Humane society so generously performed this summer.  Each of them has a "nicked" ear to indicate that they have had the procedure done.  The trapping was a long ordeal but think it is better for them in the long run not to continue to have more and more kittens. We take the food away after they finish to insure that we do not encourage more ferals into the colony.  By the way I hear a band of howling coyotes as I am writing this.  These ferals seem to be pretty savvy about getting to safety.  However, our colony is 2 less kittens than before. I'd prefer to think that some friendly neighbor adopted them.
