Citizen Cat

Cats have developed an extraordinary ability to share living conditions with us in our cities and to live socially in our homes with humans and various other species. So what does the social life of a public cat look like?

Research has indicated that cats socialize non-randomly with preferred associates, or individuals they are significantly more likely to interact with and spend time near. This means cats are able to live both socially and solitarily, with much of this social flexibility being influenced by the individual cat’s environment and life experience.

The film in progress documents the living hoods of cats in courtiers like Turkey, Denmark, Sweden, Malaysia, Lebanon, and others.
