Description

The cat crossed on the road in front of us, looking pretty scrawny which makes me think it is feral. Plus, in the middle of not much of anywhere. It had half disappeared into the bush before I got the camera organised.

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.
