Cat behavior explained by comparing it to large cats surviving in the wild

  • Mar 3, 2008
Only the most naïve of cat owners fails to recognize that their cat is in many ways a scaled down tiger. I have seen my cats, even those living in the house and neutered, go feral when attacking prey and each other. In this tape, experts describe the behavior of larger cats such as lions and tigers in the wild and how it explains the behavior of the domesticated cat. The dominant male in a pride of lions will kill the male offspring of another male if given the chance. As will a male cat if allowed contact with the kittens fathered by a rival. This act will cause the mother to rapidly enter into her estrus cycle, giving the male the opportunity to father additional offspring.
This is a fascinating video in that the footage of the cats in the wild is so similar to what we observe in our pets. Cats are mysterious, fickle and can at times be loving. However, they still retain their predatory instincts; if you doubt that, watch this tape.
