Owing to the amount of feral cat work that we deal with as a branch, it is not suprising that we come across some difficult or far from ideal situations. We try our very best to trap, neuter, health check, flea and worm feral cats before returning them to site, however this is not always as straight forward as it sounds.

Here is one of our feral colonies enjoying the sun and some food!There are times when we are alerted to cats living in places that are unsafe or where they are unwelcome and at risk of persecution or starvation. Of course it is then impossible to return them. 
If anybody can help we need a small holding, stables, or a site with a large garden away from built up areas to relocate these cats. They will make sure that any mice/rats stay at bay!

Please get in touch if you can help or spread the word, as these groups of cats will not be the only ones who will need a new outdoor home this year. Many of the feral cats are usually in a bit of a state when we are called to help. Once neutered they will blossom.
Once they lose their food supply they will soon end up ina similar position again. Don't let this happen to them. Even if we had room to take in these cats it isn't what they want. They are outdoor cats and don't want to be locked up in a pen.They deserve a safe place so they can continue to enjoy life.
