Sad days

Some people think its ok to turn a blind eye as feral colonies grow, trust me it always better for ferals to be neutered, Trap Neuter and Return is the most humane way, young kittens can be socialised once weaned. Volunteers have been working hard on TNR a local colony they have also set up a feeding regime and sorted warmth and shelter, they have used their own money to buy food and cover transport costs to vets etc too so are devastated that one of smaller kittens, which was actually due to be taken from mum today, was found dead this morning 😦 Wet winters are the worst for killing off ferals as there is no escape from the damp, cats can survive cold temperatures to minus 20 but cant survive the wet. Please neuter your cat as if unneutered cats get lost they can then start the circle of suffering in a feral colony.

Ferals in need of safe homes. 

Neutered Feral Cats. 
Places sought for feral cats, Do you have a farm, stables or small holding. Do you have problems with vermin. Have you ever thought of having a feral cat to help out with the problem. 

Very often, just the mere presence of a cat will deter vermin from eating your valuable foodstuffs. All they need is a warm, dry, undercover place to sleep and two meals a day from you.

Feral cats are distinct from pet cats in their attitude toward humans; whereas a pet may approach humans and can be handled easily, feral cats typically resist prolonged human contact. 

We always have feral and semi feral cats looking for homes outdoors in stables farms etc. We don’t ask adoption fee for ferals but donations always appreciated, we usually home feral farm cats in pairs as find they are happier and work better with company but understand if you only want one. We would expect you to feed twice daily to ensure their good health. They would need to be kept confined for a week or two, preferably near spot where they will get their daily feeds, until they settled, after which it would be a case of leaving access open till they confident enough to venture out which usually happens at night. Due to the nature of feral cats we usually bring them to you rather than arrange pre adoption viewing as if you were to visit them in foster pen they will likely hide.
