Stray Kitty?

SmugMug Daily Link

Three black and white cats are hanging out near the elementary school dumpster where Joey played basketball.  I took this photo at Joey's last game to see if the cat's ears were snipped.  Raleigh, NC has some new laws in place that allow Operation Catnip to trap, spay/neuter, and release cats back to where they were picked up.  From their website:

     (Operation Catnip was) Founded in Raleigh, North Carolina in 1997, Operation Catnip is an     
     all-volunteer organization dedicated to reducing feral and free-roaming unowned cat   
     populations through sterilization.

Before rereleasing, they snip the left ear so that the cats are visually identifiable as having already been spayed/neutered.  This cat may or may not be a stray and does not have a snipped ear.  Sure is pretty!  Must be some good vittles in the school dumpster too!
