Les hommes ont oublié cette vérité. Mais tu ne dois pas l'oublier, dit le renard. Tu deviens responsable pour toujours de ce que tu as apprivoisé.

Cat activity patterns in NY

Haspel, C., & Calhoon, R. E. (1993). Activity patterns of free-ranging cats in Brooklyn, New York. Journal of mammalogy 74(1), 1-8.

Activity patterns of free-ranging cats in Brooklyn, New York, varied with neighborhood, season, and hour of the night. Standardized partial-regression analysis identified temperature, humidity, precipitation, and hour as accounting for 32.6% of feral-cat activity. Cats in the area of private homes included free-ranging pets while those in the area of multiple dwellings were commonly feral. Regardless of neighborhood, nighttime activity was bimodal with peaks occurring at 0100 h and at sunrise. Activity levels declined throughout the autumn and increased in the spring.
