Ellis and Ingleside
The black-and-white tomcat pictured here (I dub him Ellis) was surprised (by me) while eating what looked like a raw chicken wing (captured on film below) out of a dumpster. I scared him away when I tried to give him a can of catfud, and a big black tom with half a tail (now named Ingleside) took his place. He was so happy to see that catfud can that he picked it up in his mouth and ran off with it!
This was in an alley right behind Fiske Elementary, between Ellis and Ingleside, around 61st. Cats eat out of dumpsters when they are very hungry. We need to TNR these toms (and whoever else is around there -- there are never just two cats!) and get them on a feeding schedule.
