Per The Cats of Disneyland, if they start getting too comfortable with guests or if a litter is accidentally born, they are once again adopted out to cast members. SFGATE reports that despite being referred to as feral, this is an inaccurate description. Feral cats, by definition, are uncontrollable and wild. The Disneyland cats no longer fit into this category. Though most still come out at night, many of them like to make an appearance around the Hungry Bear restaurant, Smokejumpers Grill (formerly the Taste Pilot’s Grill), and White Water Snacks (via Disney Addicts).
Despite this, Inside the Magic reports that guests are not encouraged to feed, pet, or get too close to the cats. Photos, however, are more than okay.
The Disneyland cats have amassed a large social media following. Currently, an Instagram page dedicated to them has over 100,000 followers. Moreover, Insider states that some of the cats have names, like Francisco and Ned. Although the Disneyland cats have achieved a bit of fame, Disney Tourist Blog writes that cats have also been seen at Walt Disney World as well as Disney’s international parks. It’s unknown if they receive the same treatment as their California counterparts.
