Can caracal cats be pets? — 7 Comments

  1. Have owned a very large serval (50#) for 17 years. Best behaved cat I have owned, or who owns me😉. On one hand it does take a special commitment. On the other it is simple common sense to understand their social behaviors before bringing any pet into the family. With that said there are few stronger bonds than a supposed wild cat and their human

    • Thanks Erik. Declawing is a crappy human invention that should never have happened. It was created for profit and for no other reason.

  2. A wild creature belongs in his or her wild domain. The wild cats can’t be truly “tamed”. I dearly love all felines,but would not want to have one. As you said, it takes a very special person To give a home to a displaced wild creature.

  3. Good observations and very well described. I was also thinking that if I had one like this (they are quite large too) or any exotic animal I wouldn’t encourage anyone else to either. I wouldn’t even broadcast that I had one. That would otherwise be an ego trip as well as unethical and just wrong. I also wouldn’t begrudge someone if they were a good fit for a rescue though. If the poor guy has no alternative, somebody’s got to do it.
