Feral or Stray?

Feral is not another word for "stray." A stray is a cat who has been abandoned or who has strayed from home and become lost. Stray cats can be re-socialized and adopted. Adult feral cats usually can't be socialized and won't adjust to living indoors with a human family. Rather than attempting to tame one or two feral cats, your time and effort are better spent sterilizing many feral cats to break the cycle of reproduction. (Text courtesy of Alley Cat Allies.)

The TNR Solution to Feral Cat Populations

TNR is a proven procedure in which entire colonies of feral cats are humanely trapped, evaluated, vaccinated, and neutered by veterinarians. They are returned to their outdoor environment and provided with food. The breeding stops, annoying behavior of breeding cats stops, and eventually the populations are reduced.

In 2013 Friends of Madison County Animals was able to trap, neuter/spay and release 213 cats in the Hot Springs, NC area.  We plan to continue our efforts in this area.
