Q: My friend asked me about feral cats, and I wanted to give her very basic information – any suggestions on where to look?

A: Here at Alley Cat Allies, we want to make it easy for people to help stray and feral cats, so we created a FAQ page on our website. This resource has been thoughtfully updated in response to the many new requests for information and help.  Our goal is to provide guidance that is simple and easy to understand.

Here are some examples of what you’ll find there that can help you to easily respond to your friend’s questions:

  • What is a feral cat?
  • What is the difference between a stray cat and a feral cat?
  • Where do feral cats come from?
  • What is Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR)?
  • What is an ‘eartip’?

    You will also find Q&A’s about cat care, how you can advocate for cats and how Alley Cat Allies can help you help cats.

    You may want to bookmark this page for your own reference. The next time a friend or colleague asks you about feral cats, you’ll be ready with the answers.

    I don't know where to turn too or who to really talk too, im Fostering a feral cat who wasnt ment to be fostered. Hes 7 months old and vary pretty, I'v had him for 4 days now, I want to help him i have a short time to keep him. If hes not able to be adopted, then the SPCA will have to put him down. I would rather that not happen, we cant afford trap neuter and release cause of funds that arnt there. I NEED HELP PLEASE! How can i get him to be...adoptable?

    Please donate to (or get involved with) your local organization that helps trap, neuter and release feral cats. The cycle of misery and suffering must be stopped, and this is an excellent start.
