    It's a TNR (Trap-Neuter-Release) cat. It's got a tipped ear.

    I hate feral cats. Period. My one girl that eats cat s**t like a heroin addict needs her smack, developed a brain infection from the toxoplasma those creatures harbor. 3 nights in neuro-ICU and $3000 later she was fine. But I was not sad when the neighbors "thinned" the herd so to speak.

    I'll second this.

    We inherited a cat when we bought this place. Semi-wild, but very friendly. Got on well with the dogs. Hit by a car eventually.

    I have neighbors who likely would shoot one of my dogs if it seemed a threat to livestock... I'm careful, but a time or 2 one has wandered a little. So far so good.

    The last cat we had was a feral, 6 toed, Halloween cat. He hung around for a year or so then suddenly disappeared. Since we never found any sail cats around, we assumed a Bald Eagle did him in. Don't miss him or the cat crap. Now if we could do something about the deer crap, raccoon crap, fox crap, opossum crap and goose crap, we would have it made. Let the dogs out. They will never catch it
