While Cats are everywhere in the world, there are some that are classed as Feral. They don’t get the chance to be loved and cared for. They survive on basic food and shelter – that is if they find some. Feral cats are normally not spayed or neutered and tend to have a completely different temperament from household ones. Today from Review Tales, I wish to discuss this matter and I hope that you enjoy reading it.
Before getting into this discussion, I would like to make it known that stray cats and feral cats are very different. Stray cats are accustomed to being socialized with humans. They have also previously experienced how to bond before being abandoned or left behind. Feral cats are animals that have never had any or very limited amount of contact with humans. A feral cat will rarely be okay with becoming a household pet. Understanding the difference is important because it helps inform everyone how best to interact with the cat.
Feral cats cannot be touched and once caught, will likely stay in the back of the cage. They will more likely be tense and unsocial. They can be aggressive and lash out if they feel threatened. Taking them in is very hard and turning them into a domestic cat is almost impossible.
If you do come across a Feral cat, it is best to leave them alone unless they are hurt and need medical attention.
