This is one of our street cats (above). We don't know his name, but think that there's a chance that he might be Jax's brother. They look quite a bit alike (see Jax on the right), not just because they are both black, but this guy has that magnificent mountain lion chin that Jax has. It juts out, where most kitties have a small chin, their faces are shaped the same and they have slanted eyes. I guess it's also possible that this guy is either Jax's dad or son. Jax was already fixed when we took him in. His first "caretakers" did that, even if they thought caring for him was finished after that. He lived on the street with almost no care for his first 7 years.
As you can see, the street guy has also been modified in some very undesirable ways (at least for him) -- he is missing his tail and one of his ears. MrB has managed to get acquainted with this very sweet kitty, but I have yet to actually make contact, other than to scare him into the storm sewer. Some day, when the weather is nice and the mosquitoes aren't feeding, I hope to be sitting outside when he comes over to drink out of the birdbath. Then maybe we can make our introductions.
