When I think of cats I don’t know why but I’m immediately taken to ancient Egypt with the Pharaohs and all things royal, they seem to walk around as if on a cloud and heads held high, like they own the place. Felines no matter the size or shape has a finesse that comes with ease, a natural air of grace, and a chicness like no other. Cats in the wild can creep up to a meter in proximity to their prey before being noticed, pouncing with speed and agility before the victim has even had a chance to react. Then there are domestic cats that are on a whole other level of being fed, but the survival instinct is never lost, they know where their loyalties lie.
Lastly, we have what I see daily having moved to Europe a few months ago, the street cat, or should I say the ‘Hunger Games survivor, because let’s be honest, on the streets, it’s an eat or be eaten mentality that keeps you alive from day today. I see cats with torn ears, facial scars, and imperfect strides, all indicators of a victor from battle.
Ok yes, it does sound a bit dramatic, but if you have ever tried to fall asleep and a catfight to the death is happening outside the window on the grass area below the block of flats, you’ll know it’s about to go down and there can only be one winner.
Aggressive cats, from what I’ve seen, have increased significantly over the past few years, perhaps it’s a survival personality taking over the species or simply a virus going unnoticed till it’s too late.
