The domestic cat is the most popular pet in the world. In the United States, over 73 million cats are owned and three out of ten households own at least one cat* The Greensboro feline, in the above photo, was last seen in the State Street Community Garden on Golden Gate Drive. He roams near the McAdoo Heights houses we featured earlier in the week. He loves to hang out among the raised-bed, garden plots that are mostly empy and fallow for the winter. While a few tomatoes remain, Fat Cat, is not in the garden for the tomatoes. He is in search of little mice and other small rodents. Quite possibly, he is convinced that all the world is a litter pan. He navigates this common area like a deer through a plowed cornfield, running the perimeter knowing exactly where he is going.
With his blue eyes and seal-gray coloring, Fat Cat appears to be part Siamese; with his shiny coat, he appears to be well cared for. We doubt Fat Cat is a feral cat; however, if you have any in your neighborhood, Greensboro has a Feral Assistance Program and there is always an abundance of cats in the Animal Shelter. Join one of the 35 million households and let a feline adopt you today! If you are lucky, your cat will be as pretty as the one featured today.
