Assisting Stray or Feral Cats & Kittens
You can start helping right in your own neighborhood. The most important way to help is by having your own animals spayed/neutered.
Is there a local neighborhood cat that everyone feeds but hasn’t been spayed/neutered? Do you know of someone who feeds a group of cats that continue multiplying? Ask for donations from neighbors to have the cat(s) spayed/neutered and sign up for the low-cost transport. For $65, you can have the cat spayed/neutered and vaccinated against rabies.
Did You Know…
- A female cat, her mate, and all their offspring can produce 370,092 offspring over a seven-year period if they have two litters a year with 2.8 surviving kittens per litter.
- Feral cats are the “wild” offspring of domestic cats and are primarily the result of a pet owner’s failure to spay or neuter their animals, allowing them to breed uncontrolled.
- Feral cat “colonies” can be found anywhere – abandoned buildings, campuses, parks, alleys, undeveloped areas, shopping centers or businesses.
