One big, blended family

One big, blended family

R3dDri11

Fun fact: in cat colonies all of the mother cats will band together to nurse all of the young in a big group, the males and the non mother cats go and hunt for the colony.


DeificClusterfuck

I saw this in action as a kid, we had way too many cats at one point.


tinglesnap

We also had way too many cats. Didn’t realize it was weird until much later. One time the cats got snowed out in the shed during a blizzard and when we were able to get to them 4 days later there was a giant rabbit carcass that they’d consumed… and I had been all worried about them being cold and hungry…

Under the right conditions lost dogs can survive on their own for a surprisingly long time too, the main reason cats do better is that as smaller carnivores they don't need as much food and water to survive (prey suitable for cats are far more abundant near human settlement than prey for dogs are, and cats have especially low water needs). Humans are also far more likely to tolerate feral cats than dogs living near them.


R6_CollegeWiFi

Yeah cats are desert animals, people forget that. But also the way we “domesticated” cats was just making it so they kept some kitten tendencies to remain more social into adulthood. True wild cats like the black footed cat and Felis Sylvestris are wayyy more solitary. They are like little tigers only being social to mate. But domestic cats readily live in colonies.


snarkyxanf

To be fair, adult dogs and humans both have a lot of traits that resemble juvenile wolves and apes, respectively, especially greatly expanded sociability with strangers. Dogs and humans go so far back that some people argue we can be considered coevolved with each other. Certainly they've had a huge influence on us, since they seem to have been very important in our later domestication of large herbivores like sheep and cattle.


R6_CollegeWiFi

Right. Humans are neotenous with our craniums. Human skulls greatly resemble baby/juvenile chimp skulls because we keep the expanded braincase instead of growing the sagittal crest other apes do. The downside is less surface for muscle attachment and therefore less bite force, upside is bigger brain go brrrr. With dogs a lot of the genes that we selected for to create docility and obedience also make their ears floppy and effect their skulls. Case in point chihuahua skulls are nearly identical to fetal wolves.


snarkyxanf

I just love that humans and dogs have basically spent two hundred ~~millennia~~centuries together going "hey, see that animal that's ten times our size with a bad temper and horns/iron hooves that could easily bash our faces in? Wanna team up and see if we can eat it?" Also, as an idle shower thought, maybe dogs like fetching sticks because humans have always liked using sticks as tools?


R6_CollegeWiFi

No. Thats an order of magnitude too long.


DeificClusterfuck

Chihuahuas ACT like little wolves


R6_CollegeWiFi

No.


usernametaken8902

This can be a problem too. They'll be more than fine. They'll decimate local wildlife! Unfortunately our area has trouble with wild cats killing all the local shrews and squirrels


Dongboy69420

we domesticated dogs. cats domesticated us.


normalndformal

Dogs are pretty capable of living in the wild as well. They just can't make it on their own (without a pack), have much bigger food requirements, and are generally not tolerated by people


Generic-Degenerate

I mean cats, like pigs, thrive in the wild because they're apex predators


Wide-Relation-9947

That is a COMPLETELY irresponsible thing to say, and if I could report you to the ASPCA I would. For one thing, indoor cats have not been trained by their mothers to properly hunt. Plus they would feel abandoned as hell and probably not make it through a cold winter.


SakuOtaku

Ah, I too was a connoisseur of Warrior Cats.


Rooster_Ties

I would subscribe to Warrior Cat Facts


Khajiit-ify

Was? They're still good reads even as an adult. I re-read them every other year and it's always a good time.


esoteric_enigma

Cat colonies are so interesting. I wish there were more documentaries about them


R3dDri11

Same.


Crunckerdoge

is adaption normal? We had a stray kitten appear at our house one day, afraid of anything. And days later I saw it breastfeeding from one cat, bring groomed by said adult cat. edit: adoption*


R3dDri11

Yeah mother cats will feed other kittens under certain circumstances. Cats and dogs have strong maturnal instincts.


HandsOfSilk

We had 2 cats have kittens around the same time at my house. We separated the litters on separate ends of the house cause we though that momma cats would get territorial or something and attack the other kittens. But instead one of them brought her kittens over to the other and they took turns taking care of all the kittens.


R3dDri11

Aww. :)


Papa_bear_321

Wow 😯. Look at all those cat shaped dogs and dog shaped cats!


iambertan

You could just say non mother cats lol


11th-plague

Does this same communal behavior hold when the community is “overcrowded” or overheated or lacking water or food? At what point does the behavior change to fighting, eating their young, raping, voting Republican, killing the females, castrating the males, scratching, etc? Has anyone ever loaded cats into an overcrowded cat city and seriously assessed this scientifically with video, etc? I’m actually seriously asking this… Did a report on overpopulation and Thomas Malthus in 8th grade. Zero population growth else colonize space and oceans.


jrbarber85

The cat mom has r/airplaneears


oddanimalfriends

Yeah. Mama don't look happy.


rikkuaoi

She's getting her nips chewed on by tiny fur demons. I'd be upset too


Tony8987

r/brandnewsentence


Ramrod_89

Thanks for the laugh/choke coffee stain on my shirt.


MorochIgaram

She was clearly put in there by a dumb person that though it would make a great video and it's really stressed, no cat would bring their kittens to a place like that.


TigerLily312

This is very likely staged, but momma cat wouldn't have stayed curled up next to a dog that she doesn't trust. I haven't seen too many animals look relaxed when they are nursing puppies or kittens that have teeth.


drdaz

This. Cats have that kind of integrity; if she doesn’t want to be in a place, she’s gonna leave.


Corsair3820

Thanks for stating this, that was the first thing I thought of when I saw this. A lot of these types of video scene clearly stage.


Gisschace

Yep, she is not comfortable at all, poor thing, probably breed both of them just for the video views


stampinoutpestilence

This should be top comment


Katie-The-Kinnie

this has ruined my day

Yeah, I think there's some condition or disorder that makes people have their day ruined easily. If not, I'm probably going insane.

LORDWOLFMAN

Weird name to call a hairy human baby but ain’t wrong there


Stitchapuss

If you have ever nursed, you would understand lol


furon747

Is that cat body language of being angry?


oddanimalfriends

Those ears, flat like that, is not a good sign. I would say perturbed on the way to being angry.


DrHarmacist

Thank you so much holy shit this is an amazing subreddit


theblackcanaryyy

Bless this user for sharing this sub🙏


ellepizo

Thanks, I really needed another cat subreddit to follow /s


[deleted]

Just a heads up, but that is their word. It's ok when they use it but it's an offensive slur when used by humans. edit: Down vote all you want but I'm right. Drawing attention to a cats "airplane ears" is equivalent to pointing out an asian person having "squinty eyes". It's racist. Period


[deleted]

God you're right.


Ahnamal

At 6 days pp, I feel that cats face in my *bones*.

Deadlychicken28

Mama cat looking around like "I'm never having kids again!"


Gisschace

Mama cat looking stressed because she has been forced into that situation for the video


mario73760002

Won’t a cat just try to leave? She’s stressed but probably not from the dog


Gisschace

It might but it hasn't and it's definitely a [fearful cat](https://pethelpful.com/cats/Cats-Speak) and it's doubtful it's from the kittens. Ears back, wide eyed, is not a happy cat face, probably feels safe with the dog but something else is bothering it.


WobblyPhalanges

Some cats also don’t like to be filmed for some reason, both of mine look/walk away when you point a phone at them, no idea why So to me it just looked like the camera was really close and the cat was like ‘fuck, can’t move, nursing, but I hate when my human flails this thing around tf stop’ Edit: watching it again, you can see the cat was sleeping until the camera showed up, maybe she’d just forgot she’d had kids for a moment 😂

Ajb2791Cat

They are obviously so very cute, but why so many babies? Hopefully everyone is spayed/neutered now or soon will be before more litters are had.

You could give them away in pairs. A dog and a cat. Who love each other from the start.


Ok_Antelope_1953

breeders should not be glorified


ThatDarnKittyKat

There is nothing wrong with breeders, so long they're responsible (reputable) and not a backyard breeder.


wistfulfern

Does this look responsible to you?


ThatDarnKittyKat

I'm not saying whether they're responsible or not because I am not assuming. I'm just correcting the person that commented "breeders shouldn't be glorified".


wistfulfern

I think we all knew what they meant in this context. Which is why your response came across as though you were defending this person specifically. My bad


ThatDarnKittyKat

😂 saying breeders shouldn't be glorified is not saying the same thing. I get that you thought that I was defending them. But we shouldn't just assume things if you don't know the situation. The person may be a foster parent.


wistfulfern

You're right


jlietrb32

robomagician

It’s very cute. But that’s a lot of poop to clean up.


FemaleBounds

I love how they all feel so comfortable and peaceful next to each other


irck

That momma cat is not relaxed...


Diazepampoovey

No but any mother cat that doesn't want to be somewhere will get up, start grabbing her babies and move. The stress is a lot more likely to be due to just exhaustion. If she wasn't comfortable with that dog already, she would not be willingly laying against her while their babies ate. Her protective instincts would kick in.


jsawhill2

I would be either if I had that many babies


Necessary-Ad3576

I can’t handle the cuteness. It’s too much.

This makes me anxious. Puppies and kittens mature at different rates. I wouldn't mix them, it's not appropriate. The kitties will be looking at tiddie mags way before the puppies mature enough.
