Instagram account stars the feral cats of Disneyland
There are well-known animals at Disneyland-the goats in the petting zoo and the horses on Main Street-and then there are ones that fly under the radar: the feral cats that prey on rodents. Disneylandcats curates photos of the felines taken by visitors of Disneyland and California Adventure. The account, as of this writing, has more than 11,000 followers and roughly 100 photos of the cats. Some of the estimated 100 to 200 cats on Disney's Anaheim, California grounds have names. Buford, the white domestic shorthair with a black brow, likes to hang out in Critter Country and Peter, the grayish-brown domestic long hair, enjoys spending time at Hungry Bear Restaurant, according to carefully scripted biographies featured on the Instagram account's accompanying website, The cats started prowling the park years ago and have grown in numbers over time. In 2001, Best Friends Catnippers, a volunteer group, joined forces with Disney to institute a trap-neuter-return program, The Orange County Register reported. There are five cat feeding stations throughout the two parks, according to The Los Angeles Times.
