A feral cat is a cat that has never had social contact with a person. On the other hand, stray cats have had social contact with a person at some point in their life. Feral cats are scared of humans and will avoid contact. Although they are shy, they will claw, scratch, and bite if threatened. According to the Wisconsin DNR, “the feline population has tripled over the last four decades with about 2 million feral cats roughly estimated in Wisconsin.” With that said, stray and feral cats are very problematic animals. 

ARE STRAY & FERAL CATS A CONCERN?

  • 1. Cat Problems

    Feral cats pose many problems. They leave very unpleasant and nasty odors. Feral cats reproduce very quickly, which can lead to a serious infestation if not controlled. They also kill thousands of songbirds in Wisconsin every year. According to the CDC, “feral cats have been the primary animal responsible for the transmission of rabies to humans in the United States.” 

    We also recommend homeowners not to feed stray cats because of the problems they create, and other neighbors will not be happy with you.

Ferals cats primarily eat small rodents, birds, and insects. 

Feral cats live outdoors in colonies and are found in various areas, including farmlands, suburbs, and cities. They will live in abandoned buildings, old barns, garages, and under decks. 

The breeding of feral cats is one of the major concerns regarding these types of cats. They breed year-round and reproduce dozens of kittens that can be as annoying and aggressive as parent cats. Therefore, as we trap feral cats, we will take them to facilities where they will be neutered and socialized.
