I've seen her/him a few more times now. I thought some here might like to see more pictures. It let me get a bit closer and take pics that weren't through the storm door. I got a few close ups of it eating. I think it's tongue was out in everyone of them. LOL!
Alabama you are just down the road a bit from me and we obviously are kindred spirits -- I trap and neuter the ferals at my barn too. They stick around and are fed 2 x day w/the horses. I have a kitten (well I guess she's now a cat) that was born feral at the barn. Trapped her and her litter mates, gave 2 away to a good home and kept her. She's really pretty and her mother is just gorgeous. I'm just outside Columbiana --

You just reminded me to update my profile. I'm still your neighbor, though. I just moved up the road a bit to Calera. Nice to meet you! And I'm a complete sucker for any cat. LOL!
Guin, I don't know much about Bengals but she looks exotic to me. But I'm a novice at cat genetics, so who knows??? Out here in the sticks where no one seems to see the benefits of spay/neuter there's no telling what he/she has in her.
I'm dying to trap her and make her a friend. S/he's already somewhat trusting.
That coat pattern is the "classic" tabby as opposed to the more common "mackeral" tabby. The classic is swirls and the mackeral resembles the skeleton of a fish -- vertical stripes. Gorgeous kitty -- best of luck! I'll bet she makes a great house cat once caught.
I'm getting a dilute tortie color from the pics with some tabby markings visible as well. I believe the way it works from the bottom up is :
Base coat color + tabby markings + tortie masking masking certain areas of the body + a dilution to the entire body.
