Feral cats are those felines born in the wild or outdoors from stray cats or from other feral. As opposed to domesticated cats, these felines are unaccustomed to human interaction.

Because they’ve lacked affection and had to struggle to find food and shelter, these cats are typically more aggressive and a lot less friendly than domesticated cats. They usually don’t like human contact, simply because they are not used to it or because people they’ve encountered on the streets treated them badly.

However, that doesn’t mean these cats can’t get accustomed to being normal pets and lead a better life. With regular care and patience, they can become wonderful pets. Sometimes, the transition process goes a lot smoother when there’s another cat to “make the introductions” and facilitate the interaction between a feral and a possible human caretaker.

Mason is an ancient, battle-scarred feral cat with major kidney issues. Because he was struggling to adapt to an environment full of people, Mason was likely to be euthanized. Luckily, though, someone was inspired enough to let the cat play with an adorable little kitten.

In just a short amount of time, Mason’s behavior significantly changed for the better. The cat perfectly adapted to life in a home and is able to live his sunset months in comfort, free from pain.
