Hi there,

 

Just joined the cat site.  I have a feral colony that I inherited when my mother passed away a few years ago.  Wondering if anyone knows of any resources I might take advantage of to find food for, or even relocate some of these cats.  It is very difficult to care for all of them and the day may come when I have to sell the house where they live in the yard.  I have been through a real ringer with these guys.  Any tips or advice would be helpful.

Hello and welcome to TCS. We have many members with extensive experience of running feral colonies, the problems of funding, the health issues and the possible controversies with neighbours and local organisations. I am sure that you will find a wealth of information and hopefully contribute to the knowledge pool! We would love to know more detail about your ferals - how many have you got, do you get good help from local vets and animal charities, etc.

Here is another informative article including some resources as well.

I would definitely start to think of a plan to relocating or moving some of the cat's into another feral colony/barn. If you contact your local TNR organization (google TNR for your county) they will be able to help and assist you in possibly finding another situation for this colony since you might have to sell the house sometime down the road. Better to have a plan in the wing's, just in case agree.gif

Your mother must have truly been a cat champion in her time hugs.gif and I am sorry you lost her and sorry the cat's lost her frown.gif. It is also possible that the TNR organization has a list of feral colony caretaker's on hand (I am on a list too for this) that might be willing to take a cat or two and integrate them into their colony. Much luck to you and thank you for caring these cat's who need someone so badly hugs.gifhugs.gifhugs.gifheartpump.gifvibes.gifvibes.gif
