How is a feral cat different than a stray?
Stray cats are those that once had a home but have since been abandoned or escaped and are living outdoors. These cats are sometimes friendly and could potentially be adopted. Feral cats, however, have experienced little to no human contact. Sometimes feral cats are the offspring of a stray while other times they are born to feral parents.
Where do feral cats tend to live?
Feral cats are often found in areas where they can have access to food and shelter. They usually live in a colony of related cats that occupies a certain area or territory. Near restaurants, beneath porches or in abandoned buildings are some spaces where feral cats are known to dwell. Because feral cats are so fearful of people, it’s possible that you might not even be aware that a feral colony exists near you.
Can feral cats cause problems?
In neighborhoods known to have colonies, officials say residents might complain of noise from the cats, flea infestation, odor from cats spraying to mark their territory and deaths of small animals that fall prey to the cats. It’s also possible that cats in the colony will be suffering from visible injuries, infections and other illnesses.
