I'm confused… what's the difference between a stray cat and a feral cat???

Pet and stray cats are socialized to people

Feral cats are not socialized to people. They have either never had any contact with humans or their contact with humans has diminished over time. They are fearful of people and survive on their own outdoors. A feral cat is not likely to ever become a lap cat or enjoy living indoors.
