I am seeing feral cats all over scared of humans and everything i guess they fish out of the biyou and eat litter they go to peoples houses and eat other animals food and maybe even picks on them. There is an vacant house behind my friends house been vacant for a few years and its like cat mania back there it is a feral cat colony so many different looking cats all kinds of colors some look persian some look siamese some look maine coon and alot look like a mixture if you look over the fence and say boo they all scatter they pick on her chihuahuas and keep reproducing why do all of these cats become feral??!! and someone feeds them there so they are sticking around and making more. How come dogs dont get feral this easily?
Because dogs are social animals, unlike most cats. Dogs have also been bred for 90,000+ years to thrive on human companionship. Cats have only been domesticated for about 4 to 6 thousand years, that's a huge difference. It doesn't help that cats breed at bout 4x as fast as dogs either.
I adopted a feral cat. He is a sweet heart. If you are having problems with the cats behind your house check around for a feral rescue. There is a large stray dog population around here. After I get my 7 new dogs spayed and neurtered im going to catch a few of the strays and have them spayed and neurtered. Another thing you can do is contact your local animal shelter and see if they can trap the cats.
My husband brought home back in march 4 baby feral cats that he found abandonned - I hand fed them for a couple of weeks and now they have grown to become the cutest - most intelligent - playfull cats i have ever had. I would not trade them for any race of cats and I love them deerly. Problem is that our rottweiler is not crazy about them so now our apparment is separated in 2 sections - I understand what you say seeing small cats like this makes me very sad - cats are great creatures and i always worry about their health, whether they are fed, if they are warm, dry etc... It is a real struggle for me to turn away when i see one
