My question is: are feral personality traits hereditary? I just got a female kitten from a litter of 3, all girls, parents are both feral. Mom brought kittens to my friends covered patio during a bad rainy spell and my friend brought them in because they live in a rural area and she was afraid critters would get them. Friend kept them in, bottle fed them and when they were 8 weeks old she found homes for them. They are now almost 4 months. I took one, her SIL took other 2. Hers are chill. Mine is wild. She attacks everything except my dog, she bites, claws, scratches and darts between my feet. If I try to pick her up she bites and scratches my hand but she will come and get in my lap and purr. She has 3 scratching posts but still scratches on furniture. She ran thru my feet while I was walking and I tripped and fell, twice! Is there any hope or should I re-home her? I’m 72, I can’t keep falling. HELP!
