Lil' Feral

Here's another cat that likes to hang out in my backyard. One of my housemates dubbed him with the moniker "Feral" because he lives outside and doesn't trust humans.
I tend to call him "Lil' Feral", and eventually plan on upgrading to "Lil' Pharrel" because it sounds more like a proper noun.

Even though he won't let anyone lay a hand on on him, he is very curious about humans and likes to spend time in our vicinity, observing our habits presumably.

I suspect that this cat is brother to "Green Eyes" (see entry one 8/8/10). They have the same eyes and vaguely similar fur patterns. Their demeanors are quite different, however. Lil Feral lacks the quiet wisdom and grace of green eyes, but makes up for it with a youthful exuberance. Recently, I learned that mother cats can be impregnated by multiple tomcats, hence resulting in a litter of half siblings. That could explain the oceans of difference between the two little beasts.
