camo cat

We semi-adopted this neighborhood cat around the time she started showing up in pictures taken by my back trail camera at 2016. By semi-adopted I mean we feed her, a practice I started when I figured a well-fed cat would be less inclined to try to eat the juncos, California towhi, scrub jays and hermit thrushes which also use the back yard garden. Despite the excellent natural camouflage she possesses when dozing on piles of leaves, she is not a great stalker (perhaps she is too well fed to make an effort). I’ve seen her several times take an interest in gophers without ever seriously jumping up. What she really likes to jump on is a box of Friskies Turkey with Giblets.
