Feral, Semi-feral and Farm Cats

    We are sometimes asked to assist in dealing with individual cats and colonies of cats
    that are feral or semi-feral and unsuited to rehoming in a normal domestic situation.
    These cats are ideally suited to a farm, stables, small holding, garden centre etc. and
    are working cats that can act as an environmentally friendly rodent control service.

    Typically they do not like much human contact although there are many occasions  
when they do become friendly once they become confident in their new situation.

    All of these cats will have been blood tested for FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency virus),
                                                           FeLV (Feline
 Leukaemia) and ringworm, as well as neutered, flea and worm treated
                                                           before being rehomed.

If you can offer one or more of these cats a home, then we only require that you agree to be responsible for their
health and welfare for their lifetime. This involves a meal every day and regular treatment for fleas and worms
plus a warm place where they can sleep and shelter from the weather. Of course, if the cat becomes ill or is injured,
veterinary treatment should be sought.  Click here for further information on giving a home to a feral or semi-feral cat.

These cats need homes where they will be cared for but allowed to live their own lives. If you are able to offer one
of these cats a home, please then contact the branch on telephone 0345 371 4212 (Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm,) or email  on ferals@bracknell.cats.org.uk
