General Information about Feral Cats and the TRN Program:
What is a feral cat? Feral and Stray have significantly different meanings. Stray cats are those who have been abandoned or have become lost after wandering away from home. Strays are often successfully re-socialized and adopted. However, feral cats are the wild offspring of domestic cats that were abandoned or lost and allowed to breed uncontrolled. Because feral cats know nothing of domestic life, they are wild from birth and cannot be easily socialized or adopted into a human family.
Why not humanely euthanize them all? When a cat colony becomes the target of extermination, or the cats are removed from their living areas, it creates a vacuum effect and allows for more feral cats to come in and breed. However, cats that are sterilized, fed and watered will protect their territory and most importantly, NOT BREED. This also reduces fighting among cats, intrusions into garbage cans and yards and reduces the potential of spreading disease to domesticated animals.
