Pouncing Cats and Their Safety

group of cats

The word “group” refers to the manner in which felines interact with each other. In most cases, a group of cats will become referred to as a neighborhood rather than a pack. In addition to that, if you wish to refer to a group of cats, the appropriate terms are: tame, izak, mane, blood and brachy, or brachy. A male cat, whether neutered or not, is normally called a zuzu, when not, would be called an ezel. A female cat would be called a mane, or, a hypo.

Oriental Countries

The etymology of the word cat has been connected to the Oriental countries, where it originally meant silk. Thus, in China, there were silk cats. Then, according to etymology, it was brought to Europe by sailors in the Middle East. From there it reached North America, Australia and some parts of South America. Thus, it is considered as a modern word.

Today, felines do live in groups, even though it has been long forgotten. When cats live in colonies, they hunt together and find different spots to hunt at. If a male cat in a group stays behind, the rest start hunting after him. Thus, these cats become called “stray cats”. Such a cat is usually taken to an animal shelter, but sometimes it manages to return to its original home.

Warning Sounds

When a cat decides to return to its own home, it does so bearing the warning sounds of “eye for an eye”. That is one way of describing a cat’s instinctive behavior toward its own kind. This can also describe their willingness to attack other cats and even humans. They usually use their sharp claws when fighting with each other.

Some people say that a cat pouncing is like a bunch of kids calling one another “puke”. The kids in the group of cats may pounce on one another because they want to be first to play or because they are playful. This is known to be a common behavior among felines. A few kittens called pups also participate in the pouncing action when they see their mothers with young.

Clawed Cats

In fact, these pouncing cats are often called “clawed cats” or “pounced felines” and is not wrong in calling them by this term. So, what is the correct term, then? It is ” Collective.” Cats do pounce collectively, but they do it only when they want to. If they do not pounce, it means that they have chosen not to do so. A collective cat is one that meets its own kind, and does not try to be more “common”.

To sum it all up: The word clowder can be used to describe a group of cats, kittens included. If you use this word to describe a group of kittens, it means that these kittens were born in clumps and are members of that clump. It would be more appropriate to use the word collie. A collie is a bred cat and part of a breeding group. You cannot call these kittens “kittens” or anything else as this is not a common term in cat lover vocabulary.

Bottom Line

When it comes to small felines, kittens in particular, it is important to consider their safety in the presence of other felines, particularly larger cats. When there are multiple kittens in a confined space, they need to be observed and not encouraged to jump on each other. Kittens who pounce should be separated from larger felines so that they can deal with the situation appropriately. It’s best if they can stay with their own kind.
