Hospital ferals [photogallery]

Hi there,

as promised some, I would like to share some photos I made. I hope they will be of some interest to you.

These are some feral cats that live on the premises of the hospital I've spent some time last year. They are taken care of by some people I met - they feed them and offer them veterinary help. You may notice, that some of them have cropped ear - this is done in order to differentiate which cat was neutered in the past.

I've spent over three months in that place so I've had plenty of time to get to know the cats that live there. The place itself is rather gloomy and cheerless, but the cats seems to be happy there.

The entrance gate:



The young ginger that live in the backyard:













His bored colleague:



The Dark Knight (from the backyard also):





Bad meets Evil:



The Elderly from the parking lot:











My personal favourite - we called him Bi-Colour. He, Stella and some other cats all live in the front of the hospital. You may notice the scar on his face...





Stella, the Princess:











Bi-Colour's Brother - hangs around the parking lot:



And finally the elevated crossing that I used for some time... The cats are living in the woods you can see just beyond the fence.

Beautiful. Nice to have cats around when ill. Glad they are being taken care of.


( Bi-Colour and his "brother" are probably.. very Likely. Her and her sister?) Both can come live with me!

Wow, I was certain they are both males - how can you tell?
I thought that this scar was indication that he was in some fights between the males...

Generally speaking calicos/torties are only female. I've never seen a male in all the cats I've rescued or known when I worked as a vet tech. Not impossible mind you, there are some colorful males out there, just for the most part only female.

Love the pics Thank you for sharing!

Both Bi-Colour and he other are Tortoiseshell cats. only about 1 - 3000 are male.

So I am guessing female. though there is ALWAYS a chance one could be male...

But then I have had a Calico male before. So yes. I happens just not as often!!

I always think of cats that live outside would be thin but those cats seem well fed and plump.

Thanks, I stand corrected
That's an interesting fact - my ginger cat's sister is nice tortoiseshell, so unusuall that it was booked just after birth...

Ursjusz the ginger on the other hand is uniform in his coat.

They are well taken care of - at least two people visit and feed them daily, and there are some money collected inside the hospital for and veterinary care.
There are some foundations that help in taking care of city feral cats, probably they are backed in this case as well.

They are so well off that they actually don't want to hunt mice that are present in the compound - or at least I was told so...

And they are beneficial also - it helps the recovery of the patients to see such creatures
