How do I…. take care of a feral cat?
We see them every day, but most people don’t give a second thought to a cat peeking out from behind a bush, or running to cross the street. Feral cats are a result of the overpopulation crisis, as the amount of cats that are homeless far exceeds the amount of available homes.
Many people with good intentions leave out food or water for feral cats in their neighbourhood but there is more involved with caring for feral cats.
Want to learn more about Feral Cat Management? Have a listen to the Ontario OSPCA Pawdcast with Jenn Toof, Acting Branch Manager of the Provincial Education and Animal Centre, discussing proper cat care and safety, and what you can do to keep your cat healthy and safe. Also, Roxanne St. Germain, Director, Toronto Feral Cat Project, discusses what a feral cat is, why it is important to manage feral cats and how you can do your part to help control the pet overpopulation crisis in Ontario.
