What Is A Feral Cat?
You’ve probably seen them gathered around dumpsters and in parking lots — homeless cats who flee from humans. These domestic cats, who are referred to as “feral,” are the result of both the failure to spay/neuter and cat abandonment. The only difference between a housecat and a feral is that the latter has had little or no human contact and developed a natural fear of humans. Ferals are erroneously labelled as “wild cats.” A bobcat is a wild cat; a feral cat is a homeless domestic cat.

The word “feral” is used on this site to describe a homeless domestic cat who is afraid of humans. As with any frightened animal, it is very important to use extreme caution. Always consult with an experienced rescuer before attempting to handle or trap a feral cat.

Cat Care utilises the Trap-Neuter-Return program for our colonies.

Our main objectives are:

  • Neuter and spay feral cats
  • Feed feral cats
  • Monitor and rehabilitate feral cats whenever possible
  • Listing ID: 877
