If You Find a Feral Cat


Feral cats have either never had any contact with humans or their contact with humans has diminished over time. They are fearful of people and survive on their own outdoors, usually in a colony with other homeless cats.


Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) is an effective and humane way to stabilize community cat populations. Cats are humanely trapped and taken to a veterinarian or shelter, where they are neutered and vaccinated. Kittens and socialized cats are put up for adoption. Healthy adults are returned to their colony site, where they are often provided continuing care by volunteers. The websites that follow offer TNR services. Keep in mind, if you choose to feed a community cat, please be responsible and spay/neuter, vaccinate, license and provide veterinary care for the cat.
