Surly Feral Cat Melts When He Meets a Litter of Kittens

By  | 

It can take years for adult feral cats to adjust to living in a home, if they ever adjust at all. Even though it’s rare for a feral cat to change its stripes, it can be done. NeighborhoodCats.org explains that “’feral’ is a behavioral characteristic, not a biological one. As a result, the same cat can be feral and not feral at different points in her life. An outdoor kitten may be born feral, then be taken indoors, socialized and adopted out as a friendly pet.”

In a video by The Dodo, viewers are introduced to Mason, an old feral cat who had a difficult time being taken from his outside environment to suddenly living with a family as a housecat. When his new owners took in a litter of abandoned kittens, it was anyone’s guess what was about to happen. Would Mason get upset? Would he run away?

Amazing, Mason transformed into Grandpa Mason, taking the kittens under his wing to show them the ropes about how to be a cat, and all the while, he got to experience what it was like to be a fun-loving kitten without a care in the world. Watch Mason’s heartwarming journey below.
