Cats turing 'violent'
Another complaint just came in and one of the things the woman mentioned was that she was worried that the cats might 'turn violent'. She mentioned also that one of the feeders had scolded her children for chasing and playing with the cats.
I wrote back to say that animals don't usually attack for no reason, but that if her children were chasing the cats, that might well be construed by the cats to be frightening behaviour and it would be best to ask them to stop.
It does seem quite odd that on one hand, some people are scared that the animals might 'attack' but then don't try and stop their children from chasing after the cats and instead ask that the cats be removed. It would seem to me that the more easily controlled behaviour would be to ask your children to be wary if you were worried about them getting attacked - because that behaviour can be controlled by you.
