Are cats raised by people more friendly than those raised by their moms?

  • Are cats hand-raised by people (with a bottle) more friendly to people than those who were raised by their mama cat?

  • Hi Carol,

    Sometimes, for whatever the unfortunate circumstance, kitten's need to be raised by humans. If this is the case, it doesn't necessarily mean they will be more friendly to people but they will require no socialization period as they will already be acclimatized (used to) humans right from the get-go. However, it will depend on how they are handled (and taught) as a kitten - that will determine the outcome of how they behave into their adulthood.
