#1 might be sick or something, if not gone entirely. I know for sure if he was holed up in a hiding spot and I got close enough, #2 would go feral on my ass. Angry/defense cat bites, and hind/front leg clawings are gnarly.
(Not sure I've ever quoted myself). Feral #1 returned the other day, less mangy and more "buff" than before. He's hunting a lot in the tall field grass and runs like hell when I drive up, but oddly a little more curious and his flight zone is closer in person than before. So that's well over 3 months away from his shelter an partner in crime (Feral #2), with tons of coyotes, some bobcats, occasional mountain lions, and no neighbors to feed him. Must have feasted on critters, drank from puddles and creeks but no clue about where he sheltered from predators. IP chicken scrap game camera was on but data card was blank for some reason.
