    Funny how all cats are cats just some interact with humans more than others.

    Remarkable that something capable of killing you with little effort can be so cute!

    Some times wild animals have been domesticated and turned back to the wild but they don't know how to live in the wild and crave the human interaction they once had.
    I have seen this and heard of folks that have done rescue work with animals , it is both rewarding and disheartening to go to this much work and have to let them go.
    Much as a I love wild life and would love to have that relationship I know better . On the other hand , if an animal has been disabled and cannot survive in the wild that would be the exception.
    K9s are one thing , I know folks with wolves , mountain lions, and coyotes as pets and they have a special relationship still the master is the ALPHA . on the other hand cats are the alpha in most cases.
    Usually males of all mammal species become aggressive when they come of age and there is not much you can do but give them their own space . Females tend to have a submissive mothering instinct that they seem to get along most of the time . Not so true of humans though.
    Just like knowing where you dog loves to be scratched communications with different animals takes all that sensitivity and more ,you tone and body language and authority and discipline.
