Mac is an old feral who's been at the cat sanctuary since 2005 when he was trapped in north Richmond.
He's a gentle, friendly boy now, so I didn't realize he was a former feral until Leslie told me later. I wouldn't exactly call him outgoing--at least he didn't go out of his way to get or keep my attention when I met him this evening--but he's quietly happy to receive some pats when offered.
Like Andy, Mac is now completely toothless (he'd suffered from mouth ulcers), but unlike Andy, he doesn't seem to have a thing for gumming his human friends' fingers.
He appears to get along fine with other cats too, as when Whiskey came along and inserted himself in the midst of our cuddle, Mac just started rubbing against the both of us.
