I’ve mentioned Stoney several times because he was such a pivotal member of the feral cat colony that he pops up in the sketches of many other colony members. Stoney deserves several weeks to himself and today I’ll give you a quick look at his personality and his role in the colony.
Stoney became top cat as he matured. If any cat ever ruled with a velvet paw, Stoney did. This little interchange shows Stoney giving affection and a gentle lesson to young Turk, a new arrival who later became one of our house cats. Streak, Stoney’s prime lieutenant, waits and feigns a lack of interest in Stoney’s meeting with Turk.
