|Feral Cats and TNR:
A feral cat is one who is born and grows up without human interaction. Ferals often live in colonies, in locations where they can find food and shelter. Ferals differ from strays. Strays are cats who are abandoned by a human and they do not live in a colony with other ferals.
TNR is a humane method to help control feral cat colonies. A feral colony can live happily and comfortably with the help of TNR and regular feedings from volunteers.
