National Feral Cat Day
Wednesday, October 16, is National Feral Cat Day, a day set aside to raise awareness about the issue of feral or "community" cats, and to promote trap-neuter-return (TNR).
There are hundreds of events happening all over the country: feral cat food drives, TNR projects and spay/neuter clinics, fundraisers and workshops.
IDA's Northwest Office is celebrating National Feral Cat Day by teaming up with our local rescue partners and starting a big TNR project in Oregon City, Oregon (click here). We'll be working over the coming months on spay/neuter at a 190-unit mobile home park that is inundated with feral and stray cats.
We encourage everyone to get involved with a local activity to help feral cats. It is very satisfying to know you have helped to stabilize the free-roaming cat population and have made life better for cats who need some human support. A complete list of events can be found here: click here.
That's pawesome Betty, I support Alley Cat Allies and ferals
Thank you for the information. I'm glad there are projects like this to help our feral cats.
Thanks for letting us all know Betty
Great work Betty, we have similar here in the UK but no National "awareness day" maybe this is an Idea, Britain should import from America?, Keep up the good work, the Feral cats salute all who help them x wendy k x & kelly cats xxxx
The feral cats do need us as do the stray dogs. I do donate to my local shelter every year and do care for stray cats that show up here at home. Like Mouse, who I adopted and like Black and White who is still wild but isn't as dangerous to me as he was. He is starting his 5th year with me providing food and shelter and meds when needed. And now I am feeding Kitty Kat and there is shelter here for her too if she needs it. I don't know where she stays right now, but maybe this winter she will move into one of my shelter houses. I would donate more money but I don't have it. I wish I did. I applaud all who do donate both time and money.
