So for #600, here is our little brown tabby-tortie girl, a Torbie of delicate beauty who looks like a pet although she isn't. Maybe I'll even name her 600 for future reference. It's easier that Brown Tabby Tortie. ...She has her own little hiding spot here, complete with spider web. I think I'm using a version of this for the October/Halloween calendar page next year.
While this girl is wild, you know that many of the feral cats in this farm area aren't really feral. They just don't have homes. There's a difference.
We've had a cool wet summer, mostly, but lately we've had a few nice days, so I was out doing some yard work and had an opportunity to sit in the shade. I was joined, very quickly, by our friendliest cats, including Mort, Dora, Georgia, Hammie, Coppertop and Fran. It was nice, and I'm glad they got a petting opportunity: I want them to feel like they belong even if they don't officially have a house to live in.
