Feral Cat Behavior

Video transcription

Hello. My name is Carole Wilbourn. I'm the cat therapist here in New York City. In this clip, we're going to talk about feral cat behavior. A feral cat is a cat who is raised exclusively by other cats. So, he is normally afraid of humans because a human might mean destruction. In fact, generally if he sees a human or is near a human, he will take flight. Occasionally, a feral cat will fight instead of taking flight, if he feels threatened or anxious. This is a way for him to survive. He is not fighting to be mean or nasty. It's a mean, a means of survival. So, if ever you see a feral cat and he's running form you, don't take it personally. In fact, a feral cat can be socialized and can make a wonderful pet. So, once again, this is Carole Wilbourn, the cat therapist in New York City.
