The number of
cats passing through or claiming my yard as their territory has varied
greatly over the years. One time the whole neighborhood was
overrun with cats, some of them feral (gone wild and belonging to no
one). Another time cats were rare in my yard. And yes, we
have sometimes had one or more of our own. I won't try to present
the great variety colors and other characteristics of domestic cats.
(There are whole books on that subject.) Each has an individual
personality. Cats are an important consideration in urban ecology.
