I've been assuming that a feral cat is one who was not born in captivity
and has not been handled by humans - never domesticated. Some of the
ones we have which fit that description will
not let me come even within 4 feet of them when feeding them. Others
will let me put food down in front of them, but when I try to touch them
carefully they swat with claws out quite fiercely.
Could anyone illumine me on the true definition of feral cat?
