How do you tell if a cat is a stray or belongs to someone?
There are a lot of different ways to tell if a cat is a stray or belongs to someone. One of the most common ways is to see if the cat has been neutered.
If it has, then it is a feral cat. If not, it is an unowned cat.
Another way is to look at the cats behavior. If the cat doesnt like humans, they are likely a stray.
If they are friendly, then they are most likely an owner, and if they are not friendly, they may be a feral.

Its not a stray cat, its a feral cat. A feral cat is an unowned domestic cat (Felis catus) that lives outdoors and avoids human contact: it does not allow itself to be handled or touched, and usually remains hidden from humans.
Feral cats can be a vector for rabies, out of all 21 rabies cases in Turkey documented between 2000 and 2014 none were through a contact between cats and humans. Some feral cats may become more comfortable with people who regularly feed them, but even with long-term attempts at socialization, they usually remain aloof and are most active after dusk.
