What's Life Like for a Feral Cat?

Wednesday, February 22, 2012 - 4:30pm

Simply put, it's not easy. Feral cats endure weather extremes such as cold and snow, heat and rain. They also face starvation, infection and attacks by other animals. And if all that weren’t bad enough, these kitties also face dangers from humans. Poison, gassing and steel leg-hold traps are just some of the ways people, including several animal control and other government agencies, try to kill off feral cat populations. Whew! Needless to say, these felines sure could use some help.

Colony Caretakers Rock!
Despite all their potential hardships, some feral cats live comfortable lives. Colony caretakers provide food and water for the cats, making their lives a little easier. They also make sure the cats have proper shelter, and they work with local vets to have them spayed/neutered. We told you, colony caretakers rock!
