this dvd can be found at www.tawzerdog.com Feral, wild, and stray are terms used to describe a cat that is not outwardly accepting and/or inviting, and typically is afraid of human interaction or touch. However, feral no longer means a cat must either be killed at a shelter or a left to fend for itself. Feral cats can be socialized so they can be placed in homes and even anticipate human interactions. I describe a pathway that has been used to bring these cats into an environment—embracing the LIMA approach. The basic outline includes instilling security, building confidence, increasing interactions, and continual re-evaluation. This plan can be tailored for specific goals and cat temperaments.
