Talk Title: The Street Cat Project: Exploring Cities through the Eyes of Feral Cats
The Street Cat Project explores the relationship that we as city-dwellers have with our nonhuman neighbors. Jordan Matthew Yerman has traveled to Japan, Iceland, and Israel to meet their local street-cat populations. Profound differences emerged in how these feline street urchins behave around humans, and how they interact with one another. This exploration has come full circle, as he encountered Metro Vancouver’s own carefully-hidden feral cat population.
