Other training sessions:

Hands-on Trapping Techniques.

We discuss the process of humane trapping: planning and coordinating a trapping session, what to take with you when you go trapping, setting the trap, and handling the trap after you've got your cat.

Feral Cat Domestication.

We tell you how you can start with a feral cat that has been trapped and have the best success in transforming him into a lovable companion. There are a lot of tips that we can give to improve your chances. We will discuss the equipment that you will need to do it, and talk about safety -- both for you and the cat.

Hands-on Basic Cat/Kitten Care.

We bring together a lot of really simple techniques that a foster or caretaker can use to help keep cats healthy. These techniques are based on the P.G.F.F. policy of using holistic health care whenever possible. Many of these you will never hear about from your vet.
