Today, I'm in training at an animal shelter. There's an adorable tiny kitten there, which my boss said not to touch it because it's feral. "No way he's dangerous" I said, reaching into the cage to pet it. It struck like a cobra and tore up my arm. My first on-the-job injury is from a KITTEN. FML

And also that he knows nothing about cats... Even the tiniest kitten has claws and teeth, and yes they can do damage if they feel threatened. ALL feral cats are dangerous and should be treated carefully no matter their age. OP shouldn't be working in an animal shelter if he a) doesn't know how to work with animals, and b) can't follow simple instructions about said animals. He's lucky his stupidity didn't lead to anyone else getting injured as well.

Well, you were warned.

You sound like you would get along well with the man who climbed into the panda enclosure at a zoo in southern China and was subsequently mauled. Just because an animal does not to look dangerous does not mean it can't cause serious injury ... especially since you were specifically warned about it. YDI!

Cats are hard to read but they can be rehabilitated even if they are feral. But reaching in and scaring the poor thing to death is not the way to do it. Ydi
