What is a semi-wild cat
This is how wild and domestic cats differ from each other
Beware of confusion - this is how domestic and wild cats differ from each other
The European wildcat is not a feral domestic cat. In some cases, even experts can hardly distinguish a wild cat from a domestic cat with the naked eye. Ultimately, only a genetic test can bring safety. In addition to its appearance, unusually wild behavior can be an indication that it may be a wildcat. Wildcats cannot be tamed and are always shy of people.
