Cats in the Hood: Tiger

Okay, I know, we're cat fanatics. But here's a photo of Tiger, a barn cat that lives down the road a bit and who we had the pleasure and honor of feeding while her normal feeder-person couldn't get to her because of the blocked roads after the ice storm.

Tiger is a mouser, and extremely affectionate. She's very independent and has six toes on each paw - "pawesome!"

We love seeing Tiger around the neighborhood and her humans, whom she chose about 2-1/2 years ago, enjoy spending time with her as well. When they get together, they stroll down the lane with Tiger walking in stride with them, more like a corgie than a cat...and without a leash!

Here's to Tiger, she's true blue...

P.S. If you're interested in your own cat, or have a feral cat that has adopted you, Animal Kind in Hudson, NY is a great resource. Not only are the (non-feral) kittens on the ground floor adorable (and adoptable!), but the upstairs Cat Lounge is cool...and trippy. Don't miss it!

They are also very active in helping the feral cat community with information about how to build a shelter for a feral cat and much more about the feral cat culture.
