21 April 2015 – no casualties, but a surprised potential scavenger

I was able to walk right past this curled up sleeping kitty cat on the north side of the NRC today.  It only took notice of me after I walked away and returned with the camera at the ready.

We’ve seen evidence that cats have been responsible for some scavenging, but this is the first time I’ve seen a live one at the site.  I also don’t have any evidence to suggest that this cat has scavenged anything.  From what I could tell, it was hunkered down enjoying a soft bed of fresh mulch in a spot out of the rain.
