Yes. There is not a lot of “look” that is different between a domestic moggy and ferals. Many years ago I did a research project about a comparison of different coat colour genetics of feral & unwanted urban cats. I believe there is some difference, but this is at the level of gene frequency, rather than being able to characterise any one individual.


I thought the subject header would suggest something about 3 Latham's Snipe at Jerra Wetlands and whether the cat was of relevance to them.

Looks like a domestic moggy. They’ll be more of those when the housing developments happen.
