Lo encontré el día martes 21 de octubre del 2014 a las 5:35. El día era templado y con un sol muy brillante. me encontraba caminando por mi jardín cuando vi a este hermoso gato domestico corriendo en los jardines de mi unidad. Pude ver que esta raza de gato es muy ágil y muy travieso. es de un color grisáceo y su pelaje es muy áspero, tiene orejas medianas y un poco redondeadas, tiene ojos amarillento con la pupila negra, tiene la cola larga y la punta un poco redondeada.

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.
