Unfortunately, some deer and bucks are dealing with a surge in disease. Recent research suggests that feral cats may be the culprit behind the infection of whitetail deer in northeastern Ohio. Feral cats are domestic cats that have reverted to their feral instincts and behaviors in order to survive without human care or supervision. Thankfully, the cat in this video isn’t feral – it’s a curious domestic kitten!
But it’s not just a deer — it’s a stag
By the way, the deer in the video is a buck; you can tell by the antlers. What is a stag and what is a doe? A male deer is a male deer, while a doe is a doe or doe. During mating season, bucks use their antlers to fight for bucks. The buck who manages to overwhelm everyone else wins (ouch!).
That’s why this video is so amazing – it’s hard to imagine such a small kitten walking up to a deer like that. However, after walking up to the stag, you could tell the kitten was in a good mood. Return to its owner and you’ll hear the kitten let out a loud meow! This is the universal sound of cats of all ages, but what does it mean? What does the kitten want to say?
Kittens tend to use meow to express excitement or curiosity. Whether they’re saying hello or asking something, their sweet little meow will grab your attention. But that’s not the only noise they make. Cats chirp too!
Chirps and trills are the special language between mother cats and kittens. As they grow up, cats learn to use this language with other cats and even humans. They also communicate through body language.
Watch how the kitten moves its body in this brief scene. You can tell it’s in a curious, playful mood. A wagging tail is usually a sign of excitement, while an erect and twitching tail indicates curiosity or alertness.
So, what can you learn from this story of the brave kitten who went to the deer? Life is full of opportunities. Who knows what might happen if you take the opportunity to introduce yourself – you might just make the most unlikely friends!

I am broadly interested in how human activities influence the ability of wildlife to persist in the modified environments that we create.
Specifically, my research investigates how the configuration and composition of landscapes influence the movement and population dynamics of forest birds. Both natural and human-derived fragmenting of habitat can influence where birds settle, how they access the resources they need to survive and reproduce, and these factors in turn affect population demographics. Most recently, I have been studying the ability of individuals to move through and utilize forested areas which have been modified through timber harvest as they seek out resources for the breeding and postfledging phases. As well I am working in collaboration with Parks Canada scientists to examine in the influence of high density moose populations on forest bird communities in Gros Morne National Park. Many of my projects are conducted in collaboration or consultation with representatives of industry and government agencies, seeking to improve the management and sustainability of natural resource extraction.
