male cat dragging stray female cat around by neck

There is a female cat that has no home that comes by to eat. However, I have a male cat that is not fixed. I know its normal when the female is in heat to bite her neck and mount her but what if he is dragging her around. Will he kill her? It looked pretty scary to me. But as I tried to get him he would just drag her further and further away never letting go. I haven't seen her since that day. Please advise.

Thanks in advance for your help.

the mating process can look rather violent to an outsider and so it is possibly not that unusual. It is unlikely that he will kill her as this is not his aim.

However can I strongly urge you not to allow your cat to mate with this stray cat or even better to have him fixed. this will not only stop this behavior from him but will also prevent an unwanted lotter in your area soon.

best wishes kate

What's interesting is that she puts up with it. He's trying to dominate her, but I don't think he'll hurt her. He's probably alpha in the neighborhood and they like each other.
