Flutterbydee There are a gang of three cats living near me. Two are black and one is grey. They all wear smart collars :) All three are slim and wiry. I think they are about 9 months old. They are very active, climbing over shed roofs and stopping dead to stare when they see me. My seventeen year old Kitty keeps well away :)
