WHAT IS FERAL CAT CARE?
Feral Cat Care was founded in May 1995 to neuter and care for undomesticated cats. Feral cats are not a specific breed of cat - they are ordinary cats that have become feral for reasons of cruelty or lack of human contact. They are petrified of humans and this obviously makes them extremely difficult to handle which results in them being overlooked and left to breed uncontrollably.
There is so much suffering amongst feral cats and kittens - more than 50 per cent of the kittens born do not live to adulthood, they have short miserable lives and the ones that do live start breeding at six months - and so the chain continues. We think it preferable that kittens are not born to endure this suffering so Feral Cat Care breaks the chain by neutering the adult cats and once neutered the cats have a much better quality of-life. Kittens are taken into our care, tamed and homed as domestic cats. Feral cats that are neutered and cannot be returned for reasons of-age, ill-health or safety are also taken into our care until a suitable home can be found for them.
Given time and patience some feral cats will learn to trust humans and make most affectionate pets. Feral cats are survivors, they are very dear to my heart and deserve all the help we can give them.
