The Predator by Shalora The Predator by Shalora
The Predator

I am no cute puss. I am a tough, aggressive and dominant feral cat. If you are a human or another cat, donít even try to get close to me: I am bad tempered, I hiss and the food is all mineÖ the rest of the colony doesnít stand a chance!


---
p.s. I placed this photo under the "wild" animals category because though cats are usually domesticated, this animal was born and grew up in the wild. This is in no way a domesticated animal and should not be placed into that category.


Thank you so much to ~sassy-alley-cat and ©suzi9mm for the DD! :hug:

Close-up kitty portraiture, haven't seen that in a while. This one is colorful, but don't let the soft fur and nice whiskers fool you, he is The Predator, caught in hunting (or posing?) mode by =Shalora ( Suggested by sassy-alley-cat and Featured by suzi9mm )

Cat: Run little one. Fear makes the chase all the more sweeter. . .

Why is this in "domesticated animals" if it's a wild cat?

Because "domesticated cat" is an oxymoron.

EXACTLY! I got a very dry message from an gallery moderator about two years ago with a link to Wikipedia about the domestication of cats and how this had to be in "domesticated animals". It still irks me. :/

You captured the essence of cat; his gaze is mesmerising, menacing, like his body language.

His ears aren't facing away, though, so he must be curious here.

that's a very awesome cat shot right there. one of the few on here that i actually like. you really captured the predator-held-captive-by-domestication of the cat. the color is really sharp, especially in the eyes. the pose is what astounds me the most. how the heck did you get your cat to stay so still? great shot.
