Description

This black cat lives much of the time under one of the out building on the property. I think she may have an occasional home. Another gray cat is usually nearby and that belongs to a neighbor. My dog tree'd the cat recently and I got a good look at it. Both cats are frequently seen on my trail cameras as nocturnal hunters.

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.
