National Feral Cat Day



Kitties, aren't we so fortunate to have nice homes? There are lots of feral cats who do not have homes to live in, but who have always been feral and so would not make good house cats. Today is a day to raise awareness about feral cats and about Trap-Neuter-Return programs. Several of my friends have done such great posts on this subject, and are much much more knowledgeable than we are, so I encourage you to go and read their posts, and also to go to the website of Alley Cat Allies and read their post about Feral Cat Day. They have an education section with lots of literature about feral cats and the best ways to help them.

Here is a link to Sparkle's post

Island Cats' Post.

My humans said this morning that they want to find out more about how the officials in our town are managing the feral cat population and become involved in encouraging a TNR policy.

  5. Simba, when our mommy read that last bit she got all leaky! She's weird that way so gets leaky from joy too. It's wonderful your mom and dad are going to see what programs are available to help feral kitties in your town! Tell them thank you very much!

  6. We are all formerly feral here at The Lounge. Humans need to get us spayed and neutered.
    Our feral guy Henry really likes his new Hut, and of course his dinner!
    There is a TNR program here in Vegas on the strip, they maintain colonies to control rodents around the casinos! They are working cats.

  8. I'll never forget the time we posted an article on how to tame feral cats, and some idiot went on a rampage claiming they are vermin and should be exterminated. They're lucky I didn't know where they lived because I wanted to exterminate THEM for saying such a stupid, ignorant thing.

  10. *I* was feral so I know how important it is to help.

    One little story: One of the Human's favorite fish restaurants--right in the middle of the big bad city--has a small vacant lot next door. There's a door to the restaurant kitchne that opens onto the sidewalk near the lot. Every night, the chefs put out all the leftover fishie for the ferals nearby. It is very sweet to see. We hope they are also getting spayed and stuff, but we love the restaurant for feeding these kitties.

  12. Push your humans onto the interwebs to find out! T-N-R is great and Äiti was involved in it in the UK. Stran-veli was going to be TNR'ed but he was so friendly he never got R'ed and had his forever home instead :D
