Domestication and Bonding with Feral Cats
The are several factors that impact how successfully a feral cat will domesticate. Some of them are the age at which the domesticating begins, the type of activity you invest in the process and the temperament of the cat. Trust is going to come up again and again.
You will break their trust no matter how you try not to. They will need to be caged and go to the vets. There will be many other moments that they find offensive. They are forgiving creatures and will also give you ample opportunity to build it back.
Domesticating to indoor life is one thing and accepting human bond is an entirely different thing.
Some ferals that I have known have come to live a very civilized life inside, behaving with impeccable manners. They absolutely refuse to bond warmly with a human, though.
Did You Know:
Cats have no knowledge of the taste of sweetness. They have no taste buds to detect that.
The ideal, of course. is acceptance of indoor life, a warm relationship with humans and a comfortable friendship with the other indoor animals.
That is a sure thing with the bottle fed infants. These require a lot of hands-on, round the clock attention. Bonding is surviving, it is built in to the process.
Once a kitten is weaned it takes concerted effort and reliability to foster a relationship with humans. The older kittens usually adapt to the environment and the other animals quicker than they do to humans. Once they come around to whatever degree the relationship, they are warm and loyal. They demand reliability, clear instructions a safe corner to observe and learn the routines.
Once they open up, they have so much love and affection to give.
