Description:

Not native I believe originaly from Africa. Probably belongs to the houses nearby. I had a problem deciding between Domestic and Feral cat, I don't think this is one that has gone wild, that lives only on it's wits, but belongs to someone. When it is let roam wherever it wants is this not between Domestic and Feral, the Domestic Animals Cow/Sheep/Dog etc normaly being restricted to their owners property.
This year we have added corrugated iron sheets to the reserve as habitat/refuge for small mammals, reptiles and amphibians which will mean he is less likely to find his prey.
