Born Free: Feral Cat Drawing #2

orange striped feral cat drawing
"Born Free: Feral Cat Drawing #2" Drawing by BZTAT

Cats in a feral colony have personalities just like cats that we take into our homes. Unlike our pets, their personalities are shaped by their roles in their community, rather than by their interaction with humans. Our pets, on the other hand, reflect qualities that are adaptations to their roles in our lives.

This orange cat is one whose personality does not stick out. There are some cats who make their unique presence known, but he is not one of them. He is key to the colony, though. A protector. A watcher. A monitor. He is always around somewhere on the periphery, making sure everyone else is doing OK.

I barely noticed him, until he showed up in a photo I took of a bunch of the cats together. Ironic how he was the only one who was not a blur.

This drawing is #2 in my series of feral cat drawings of a colony of cats with which I am intervening. I am placing each drawing up for auction bids. The details are below.
