I wonder whether anyone has any data on the coat colours of these feral cats. 24 years ago, I did a 3rd year Genetics project (La Trobe Uni) investigating the coat pattern genetics of feral cats, testing the hypothesis that they would tend to revert to wild-type. Was a fun project and the results went in favour of the suggestion but it was hard to get a good quantity of data back then. Birding aus is a potentially great source of info that wasn't imagined back in 1977.
