This boy is my latest stray/feral “GreyBeard”.

We first saw him when we were trying to trap an unswayed female cat. Unfortunately he was able to breed with her but we were successful in trapping her shortly thereafter. We got her to a local rescue and they re-homed her and her four kittens.

Fast forward two years and we started seeing him on the fringes of our property. It’s been over a year of gaining his trust but he is now living as a neutered male in our hay shed and we love our newest member of our extended family.

He is the 30th cat I’ve rescued in the last five years and while not huge numbers by some standards, we are trying to do our small part in making life better for these beautiful souls. ?
