Fascinating Photos of a Rural Feral Cat Colony

Clearly, you can’t go wrong with pictures of cats on the Internet, but these images by Wisconsin photographer Jason Houge are a long way from the world of LOLcats babbling in 36-point Impact. They document a colony of feral cats that live near Houge’s rural home, and do an excellent job of capturing the animals’ personalities and the lives they lead — you’re reminded that despite how close they can be to humans, cats are as alien to us as any other animal, driven by primal motivations and a view of the world that’s very different from ours. The pictures — which we spotted at Feature Shoot — are for sale here, with proceeds going toward the medical care and feeding of the colony.
