One of the many feral cats that live at the University of Texas El Paso, spotted in the Chihuahuan Desert Garden. Due to its size I believe it was a male.

Description

Los gatos domésticos, mantienen una relación con los humanos desde hace mucho tiempo. Los gatos son animales de compañía.
los gatos domésticos son cazadores natos, capaces de acechar a sus presas y abalanzarse sobre ellas con sus garras y dientes. Son particularmente eficaces de noche, también poseen un oído muy agudo. Al igual que todos los felinos, son ágiles y rápidos y sus largas colas les ayudan a tener un extraordinario sentido del equilibrio.

Description from Wikipedia

The domestic cat (Felis catus or Felis silvestris catus) is a small, usually furry, domesticated, and carnivorous mammal. It is often called the housecat when kept as an indoor pet, or simply the cat when there is no need to distinguish it from other felids and felines. Cats are often valued by humans for companionship and their ability to hunt vermin and household pests.
