Hissy Fit Jones Here. I’m taking over this blog today. Hisssssss!!!!
I was born to a feral mother. Jen took me in when I got real sick. I’m doing good now, but I’m not the most affectionate fella in town. Anyway, today I’m gonna talk about feral kitties.
Did you know that 17 million Americans feed stray and feral kitties every day? That’s alot of you! I’m sure there’s plenty of you in other parts of the world doing the same thing. On behalf of feral kitties, I thank you.
There’s other things you can do to help those kitties.
- The cats need a safe, dry space in the winter. If there’s space where the cats can be dry and out of the wind, that would be helpful. A doghouse with straw or a plastic storage container with a hole cut in the side will do.
- Food is important. So is water. Provide fresh water every day.
- Remember that feeding strays/ferals make them more visible. If you don’t own the property, make sure you get permission first.
- Please spay/neuter the cats. There are many low-cost programs; call your vet or animal control services to find out if there are programs in your area. If there aren’t, talk to your vet and see if you can’t work something out.
