Jeld-Wen Field is home to the Portland Timbers and cats

Tomorrow, April 14, is the first MLS game in Portland, Oregon as the Timbers host Chicago on ESPN2 at 8 pm.

But Jeld-Wen Field, formerly PGE Park, isn't home to just the Timbers. It's also home to a cat colony.

As workers installed a new Jeld-Wen Field sign, finished painting and laid the last of the turf in preparation for the Portland Timbers' home-opener, things have remained business as usual for some of the park's "staff."

Well, more or less.
Somewhere between 12 and 19 furtive felines comprising the field's feral cat colony have had to adjust to a new location for their feeding station when the park was converted into a soccer stadium.
