It is interesting to read about feral colonies and compare my set of cats to the "standard". I think I may have a mix of strays and feral. And the fact that it may be a patriarchal group, as all the females are younger. But, I am not sure if the "leader" is Bob or Frank...... I never see any fighting, but Bob wants no one to eat out of the same bowl with him, although Frank will let the other cats eat after they rub heads. It is also interesting that the females will often share bowls, although there are enough for all of them to be eating out of their own bowl.
Stay tuned for more on the Puryear cat community. I am naming it thus, as we live on the "old Puryear place"
