Wild Side of Cats

Domestic feral cats form female bonded social groups called colonies. Lions are the only other social cat.
Why do cats scratch your furniture? Insist on climbing up curtains and sitting on top of the bookshelf? A team of cat experts come together to answer the questions that plague cat owners everywhere. State-of-the-art "cat cams" reveal exactly where a handful of specially selected cats go when they leave the house. Join us as we learn why the kitty on your couch is a versatile and adaptable creature, but not so far removed from the prowling cats of the Kalahari.
