Please save these stray cats
1.Description of feral cats vs.stray cats. A stray cat is looking
for a new home. This cat wants and craves human interaction. Often,
the cat may be malnourished and scraggly-looking. This is because
the cat can't live without human care. It never learned how to fend
for itself. Cats in the wild are needed. Maybe not in the increasing
numbers we find today, but they are needed. They hunt rodents and
insects, keeping those pesky populations in check. The Plague was
carried in a flea on a rat! A cat sleeping in a doorway is welcoming,
even if the cat is wild.
You can put out dry food and water, provide shelter against the
storms and cold. Please trap and spay or neuter the cats so that
they don't breed or fight.
2.How To Adopt a Stray Cat. Taking in a stray cat is a gesture
of compassion that rewards you with a pet's loving devotion. Additionally,
there is no more humane way for us to reduce the feral cat population;
many stray cats haven't been spayed or neutered. Before adopting
a stray cat, however, you should determine the status of the stray
to make sure you aren't inadvertently adopting a pet who already
has a family. Spaying, neutering and vaccination. Once your stray
cat has become a member of your household and you have paid a visit
to the vet, you must visit a clinic for spaying, neutering and vaccination.
Should the cat remain an indoor/outdoor cat, it is vital that you
spay or neuter the cat. Contact your local Humane Society to connect
with local clinics that spay, neuter and vaccinate stray cats.
Now that you are assured of your new pet's health and sterility,
you can cater to his every whim! Consult other articles for more
information about proper nutrition and care for your feline friend.
Awaiting you are the countless joys of owning a cat.
