Yeah, yeah, another post. Just thought I'd post here about a feral we've kept tabs on. We grabbed Pimenta from a local feral colony, and are reasonably certain about the identity of her mother ( who unfortunately has since passed away). We also have regular contact with her sister, named Pandora ( we didn't choose the name, someone else did).

We know that they are siblings because we first saw Pandora shortly after Pimenta's arrival. The two were clearly the same age, and had a near-identical fur pattern. From a distance each one could be confused for the other. Since then they have diverged. Now Pandora is significantly larger than her sister, although they seem to weigh roughly the same ( Pimenta is solidly muscled, and thus heavier than she looks), and her eyes are more yellow than Pimenta's amber eyes. What they have in common though, is sociability: although wary around humans like any feral Pandora is as thirsty for attention as her sister.



In addition, we know that Pandora had at least one pregnancy, but we suspect two. This kid with Pandora is unmistakeably her son, and we call him Sobrinho (nephew, because he is Pimenta's nephew). The family resemblance is strong: he has the same body type and wedge head as Pimenta

A quick update: we still see Pimenta's sister from time to time when we pass the school. Like her sister Pandora's fur has gotten a bit fluffy
