Awesome! And thank you! Feral cats are cats who have become wild. They were either born to a feral mother, or some house cats can become feral given time and circumstances. Feral cats will almost never be able to be domesticated. They will, however, learn to trust you, and will wait for their daily meals. If somehow, you corner a feral cat, don’t ever try to pick it up! You can get scratched or bitten very badly. That’s why we use humane traps to get feral cats to their spay and neuter appointments, or if they are injured and need to see a vet. The absolute kindest thing you can do for your neighborhood feral cats, is to get them spayed and neutered. We have traps you can borrow, and can walk you through the process….it’s not hard! The biggest thing to remember about trapping a feral cat, is you have to have a plan already in place. You must have a spay or neuter appointment already set up BEFORE you trap them!! This is very, very important!! Once they’re in the trap, they stay there until their appointment, so you must have things set up ahead of time. DON’T EVER TRY TO MOVE A FERAL CAT FROM A TRAP TO A CARRIER! You also must be very mindful of the weather….cats can freeze to death, or die of heatstroke if the trap is not checked regularly and moved to a sheltered location once the cat is in the trap.
