Everybody needs a loving home! Though not every human is able to open up their homes to adopt homeless cats every time they appear in shelters or on the streets, there are still ways you can help make positive impacts on their lives and ensure their wellbeing.
Studies have been done to prove the stereotype wrong: feral cats are still healthy, and are NOT more likely to spread disease. Alley Cat Allies put together a Colony Care Guide with very in-depth reads on how to help protect and coexist with these animals. Details include the best locations to feed them, how to build shelter, and how keep their fresh water from freezing in the winter.
A cat can have up to 12 kittens a year. It’s easy for populations to grow out of control when these cats are homeless. To stop the spread of homelessness, you can spend time working with shelters to spay or neuter cats, adopt a new furrever friend from a rescue or a shelter, and encourage friends to adopt rather than buy cats from breeders.
