Alley cat, feral, free-roaming, neighborhood cats – they all mean the same thing. Community cats are simply cats that have been raised in, and thrive in, an outdoor environment. These cats are independent and typically uninterested in human interactions. They serve an important part of the ecosystem they live in, keeping rodent populations from spiraling out of control.
So why do we bother trapping, spaying/neutering, vaccinating and returning these cats at all? There are several reasons that mostly have to do with the welfare of the cats and their ability to peacefully coexist with neighboring humans and animals. Sterilizing the cats prevents them from creating new litters and overwhelming the immediate environment with too many cats and not enough resources to go around. Vaccinating them against rabies is important to prevent cross-species outbreaks, which results in a traumatic end for the affected animals. Most importantly, these cats are returned to their habitat to prevent outside cat populations from swarming in to take advantage of the area’s resources and starting the cycle all over again.
This month, we’re spreading the word about preventing the overpopulation of community cats! We know how important the welfare of these cats is, so we’re excited to announce a very special FREE spay/neuter event for free roaming cats!
