Owned by Ron and Robert Putman, Major is technically a feral feline. They have been taking care of him for 5 years, but he remains timid. They assume he came from an abusive environment before settling in their back yard. They made him a little house to sleep in, but Major prefers lounging on the brick steps and watching the little flock of chickens. He never bothers the chickens. He almost protects them.
Although, from what they've told me...I think Major is a girl (sshhh).
