Feral colonies

 

A feral cat is a normal domestic cat that has no or little contact with humans and has returned to a semi-wild state (feral), they are essentially a wild animal and as such can't be dealt with in the normal way if it was a friendly stray.

 

If you have or are aware of any feral colonies these need attention as soon as possible, cats suffer disease and injuries in this type of situation and its imperative it is dealt with quickly, the usual way to deal with a feral colony is trapping numbers.,neuter and release all the cats within the colony and further monitoring for new additions to the colony and doesn't increase.

 

We will assist in this if funds are available, you can also contact local; cat charities and organisations like the Cats Protection League who often have volunteers in the area to assist with feral colonies.

 Stray cat Information

So you have a stray cat visiting,
find out what to do?

 

 

Do you have a healthy looking Stray visiting?

 

A stray cat has just turned up, and you don't know if it is genuinely lost, firstly before you run to the shop for a tin of food stop! Think? Is this cat a genuine stray cat?

It's in good bodily condition, may have a collar on and looks healthy and clean, this cat is a likely opportunist and doesn't need feeding. Once you feed a cat it will remember and come back; they don't care if they have just left their own house and come for a wander.

Cats roam their territory if you feed this cat on its walk about it will remember, and return every day.

 

If you are worried about a cat? You could make a paper collar with your telephone number and pop it around the cat's on and await a response, also putting a found poster in the local public spaces could help locate an owner as well as taking it down to your local vets to check for a microchip.

 

A prime example we had such an experience, Our street only has about ten neighbours surrounded by fields, We had a cat for 18 years until the cat got sick and the vet advised Putting the cat to sleep.

A couple of days later we answered the door, to a neighbour from the top of our road he was enquiring about his lost cat. 

Always willing to help James asked to see a photo the neighbour was holding, shocked James said it was our cat, the neighbour stated that our cat had also been living at the neighbour's house for six years while his home was only down the road.

Our cat's routine never changed so we hadn't realised that our fat cat had a second home.

 

Please remember not all cats require help, but if you think you have a stray that does get in touch.
