Psychology has shown that house cats are not naturally sociable animals. However, in the wild, you will find cats forming an organized hierarchy in order to survive. For instance, consider a lion pride.
In a lion pride, the females hunt and the men defend their families. One thing all cats have in common is that they are expert hunters. Research has shown that cats are independent and determined predators. This is why they’re always in constant search of food. Their primal instinct pushes them to control their food sources.
Thanks to the specific traits that make cats hunters, they can also be food hoarders. Just watch this cat do something surprising to get food. You can only imagine the location he’s doing it from.
