Citation of information "in-text": 

It has been suggested that when studying feline behavior, it is more beneficial to study the animal's wild ancestors than to observe the cat in its present day domestic environment. This is because their "species-specific behavior patterns" (Bradshaw, 2013, p. 8) are largely inherited from wild cats.
