I think I have a wild cat?
Does anyone have any information about wild cats and their suitability to being house cats? Any behavioral characteristics or special needs?
Here is the story. We adopted two kittens at the pound that were litter mates and thus brothers. Calvin turned out looking like a cow (white with black spots) and the other cat, Hobbes, has a tabby color but with an almost leopard pattern.
Both cats get spurts of energy however Hobbes gets possessed at certain times of the day (and night unfortunately) and runs around the apartment using a very loud and very low growl that could almost be construed as a bark. He can growl just as loud as I can yell (quite the pair of lungs). I never thought anything of his behavior until the vet made a comment about his coat and a friend who has had cats for years made a comment about Hobbes possibly having some wild cat in him after watching his behavior. I think she said ocelynx or something...?
If anyone has any information or could offer insights it would be much appreciated! Thanks!
