What to do about Ferrel Cats
SPSN is sometimes contacted about feral (“community” cats) who need help. We do not provide services for these cats because there is another great local organization who does: Bastrop C.A.T.S Anonymous TNR Society. They help people support the community cats in their area.
Cats that are spayed or neutered are not compelled to fight, roam, and mate. Behaviors often associated with wandering, territorial cats are replaced by more docile, less aggressive traits. As a result, police and animal control officers aren’t called as frequently when cat colony care is supported by property owners and neighbors. Additionally, public health threats are largely reduced when feral cats are vaccinated against contagious diseases.
