Puffy McWonderTail started visiting my yard this past March, at the end of a mild but long winter. I TNR’d him, and he’s been coming back ever since, but as a truly feral cat. He shows up at dusk or night only, and leaves as soon as any human comes into the yard.
Yesterday I caught him hanging out in my yard during a rare late afternoon. He is glorious! He is bigger than ever, and his fur is super puffy and groomed now. I wish I could get a close-up photo for you. He either ignores me, or runs away from me. He is twice the cat he once was, all thanks to trap-neuter-return.
