ScarBaby

This is Scar. Before being neutered he fathered many cats on the farm, including Spirit. He is one of the colony bosses, along with Misfit. This summer Shy had a litter of kittens and it is unknown whether these kittens were related to Scar. But, Scar has a soft spot for kittens and they were often seen sunning and sleeping alongside him.

Cat a day

Spirit meet camera

Each day I will be posting a new photo from my collection of cat photography taken throughout my time working with and researching cats.

This is Spirit. He lives in a colony of 30 farm cats who are well taken care of by the farmer. He lives here with many of his relatives. Almost all his colony has now been spayed and neutered to stop any more kittens from being born on the farm. The colony shares the farm with a brood of chickens, a flock of sheep, a team of horses, a potbellied pig and a trio of dogs.
