Taking in a feral cat – a step by step guideNHV Gives Back 3 min read
Wouldn’t it be perfect if your house was big enough to bring in all the stray cats and dogs in the neighborhood? Of course, you’d then need a job that pays you for staying in and taking care of all those animals. It sure would be a life well spent. Sigh. 🙁
While you may not be able to take in all the strays, you can try to bring in that feral cat who sometimes visits your driveway and garbage cans. Unlike popular belief, feral cats are just like domestic cats and have just as much love to give. They are less humanized and have strong animal instincts that can make taming them a careful process. Many cat parents who have successfully housed a feral cat and continued to live together say that the feeling of earning a feral cat’s love and trust is just out of this world.
Do you have a feral cat who you’d like to bring in and make your family’s new furry member? We have put together a guide that explains all the steps that you will need to take from the time you bring her into the time she becomes like any other lovable and purring domestic cat in the house.
