I like the part where he apologized to the lynx while setting it free and then paid it reparations. Very Canadian.

Huh. You know, I don't think I'd try that with the average "house" cat, let alone a bobcat, lynx or other larger feline. Too many "knives" on the ends of their legs for my comfort level.

IKR. Rub my 20 lbs. cat's belly and you risk "donating" a pint of blood.

He got lucky because the cat was weakened from malnutrition. Never count on that trick to work -- grabbing any cat, including domestic housecats by the neck scruff. I guarantee it does not work with all cats. I've worked for vets and taken many cats -- domestic and feral -- to our favorite cat veterinarian. A healthy, strong lynx or bobcat could easily slash through the veins and arteries in the forearm and mangle tendons and ligaments.

One of my mom's cat was an adopted feral. Mom couldn't do anything to tame the cat and it was almost impossible to pick up that cat or put it in a carrier for vet visits or emergencies. I ended up in the ER twice with cellulitis from that cat biting and scratching. The scruff of the neck trick had zero effect on that cat.

But I adopted that cat after mom died and worked on domesticating it. I was surprised to find how easy it was despite the cat being 10 years old. She's a sweetheart now, my lap tick and sleeping buddy. It just took some patience and consistency. I pick her up often so she's accustomed to it, and gently turn her on her back while reassuring her that she can trust me. So now it's pretty easy to put her in the carrier for vet visits or emergencies (apartment evacuation due to fire alarms).

Even my personal cat, a huge tabby I adopted as a feral kitten 7 years ago, doesn't respond much to the scruff of the neck trick. She'll flip her rear legs around and scratch my forearms. So I also handle her a lot, picking her up every day, just to keep her accustomed to being handled in case of emergencies or vet visits.

This is the kind of experience I've had with some feral cats, and farm cats that are accustomed to humans but aren't "pets," as well as one of the feral kittens my mom adopted. That cat of my mom's put me in the ER twice with cellulitis from bites and scratches.

After my mom died I adopted her cats but was determined to change their behavior. They were one-person cats, and I hoped they would transfer that loyalty to me after awhile. It took some time and patience but we all get along fine now. It's a slow process, winning over an adult cat that had some negative behaviors. But now I can handle her just fine. I'm still very careful when putting her into the carrier for vet visits because if she senses any stress or fear she'll revert to biting.

My favorite cat vet has a magic touch and seems to be able to subdue any cat for exams and immunization shots. But I'm sure that over the decades he's encountered some bitey and scratchy cats.

This Turkish veterinarian's video shows how difficult some cats can be, and that they don't all respond to the scruff of the neck hold.
