About 6 months ago, a feral cat had 3 kittens under my deck. I kept one of the kittens and gave the 2 kitties and mom away. (The vet told me they were feral)
It took 3 months for Jack (the new kitty) to allow us to hold him and pet him.
We have a 14 year old kitty, Prissy, who never goes outside.
Jack has warmed to both of us (no children). He even comes when we call him. He stays outside during the day, and inside all night.
He seems to respect Prissy's age and size.
He is loving and likes to cuddle. The vet said, although not full blooded, he looks Russian Blue.
Prissy has always been a docile, quiet "lady". Jack is quite different. (that's not bad!)
Here are my questions:
1. Altho he is neutered, and is loving, he is very aggressive to me during the night. He tries to wrap his body around my head and neck and he licks my nose and ear Sometimes he drools on my face. He puts his paws on my face and neck. He is very aggressive when I try to discourage him. This behavior starts at about 3 am.
2. His teeth seem really big in comparison to Prissy's. This may sound silly, but they seem longer than her teeth ever were. Do feral cats have bigger teeth?
He trained easily for litter box and responds to "no" when he is getting into something he shouldn't. But he does not respond to my voice during the night when he is trying to wrap around my head and neck and continually licks my face and ears.
I love him very much but I am sleep deprived!
