You Can Tame Feral Cats

Mike Fountaine bought a ranch in Santa Barbara, California, and found out it came with dozens of feral cats. Over time, he made friends with them. Not only has he tamed them, he has trained them! And he’s built elaborate doors and passageways to corral the cats, and they are caged at night to protect them from coyotes and other wildlife. The feeding thing at the beginning was “just a silly idea cos we thought it would look cute.”

One thing you don’t see in the video is kittens. Each cat was spayed or neutered as soon as possible and it’s been ten years since any were born. Fountaine founded an organization for animals called The Lucky Few. Read more about Fountaine’s adventures in cat taming. -via Daily Picks and Flicks
