Default How Old Is Snaggles?

I have a feral cat (her name is Snaggles, or the Snaggly One that I like to call her, you can read more on the feral cat area) that hangs outside my apt. complex, who's come to trust me and I can pet her while she purrs away.

Wonder if anyone would venture to take a guess how old she might be. I know she's no youngster, I can tell from a few things:

1) some of her black fur has turned brown 2) she sleeps most of the day in front of our apt complex 3) I notice her often drinking after she eats 4) She doesnt seem terriably territorial, like if another cat comes and eats what she probably considers hers, she'll most likely turn and walk away, rather than fight.


However old she is, its probably well past the expected life span of a feral cat and pretty amazing. But I'm glad she's still around because she is a really sweet cat once you break through the fear.

I will post a picture of her below.

Snaggly One looks so mature -- a beautiful sweet kitty with sweet & nice temperament !

I guess -- only the vet can tell how 'young' she is when he opens her mouth and look at her teeth.

It's difficult to say... As Irene told you, the vet can help you for sure, but if she's feral it will be almost impossible to catch her

She's a real beauty, thank you so much for caring about her.

I suspect she is a dumped stray rather than a true feral since she lets you touch her. It's hard to judge age from a photograph.

She's still around because of your loving care, so Hurray For You!

Any plans to bring her inside? I guess I better read your other thread.

I still believe there is a big possibility to bring Snaggly One to the vet, as she's getting closer to you each time.

She really is lovely. You never know maybe she in time will trust you enough to take her in.
