Why no females?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Since moving to our house 3 years ago, I've been caring for the ferals in my neighborhood. In these three years only one feral female has ever showed up. Sadly she was killed by a car before I was able to trap her. So....where are all of the feral females? According to the Alley Cat Allies information sheet, in most colonies it is 60% female and 40% male. But at my house every one of the ferals is male. Not that I'm complaining, I just think it is odd.

Any ideas why we have no females (other than two very sweet spayed neighbor's cats who like to visit).

Maybe more males are dumped due to spraying problems?

Look on the bright side- lower vet bills! You want some feral females there are plenty over here in my neck of the woods.

Yes...altering females is much much more expensive (and risky) than neutering the males. Believe me, I am pleased that I have only males to deal with, but I think it is really weird. Makes me wonder about the air...perhaps fumes from the chicken processing plant up the road makes all cat fetuses male.

Most of my cats are males. I think alot of males where attracted here because of snowwhite.
