Dominate Feral Island Cat after a Passing Storm
I spotted this feral Island cat sitting in front of one of the several storage sheds near a boat slip right after a heavy passing storm. He/She seemed to be the dominate one since all other feral cats displayed submissive postures when around him/her. This colony of feral cats find shelter underneath these sheds and live off of any scraps fisherman have from bringing in their catch. They are very unique in size, facial/body structure, as well as eye colors from their domestic cat relatives. You can frequently find fundraising cans in local shops to help spay/neuter and release these feral cats to control population which sadly continues to grow.
