You have mailed every Christmas card, shopped until you dropped, and sent in your annual donations to your favorite charities. All in all, you have every reason to feel very good about what you have accomplished this Christmas. Most of us love the giving part of this season more than we love any other time of the year. People will tend to volunteer more in their communities in food pantries or shelters, as well as collecting baskets of holiday food or gifts for children who might not get one otherwise. Because it is the holiday season, we tend to focus our energies more on helping the less fortunate. Christmas truly is a magical time of the year.
Remember the first time you looked at that tiny little kitten that just wanted to be picked up and cuddled? How about the adult cat that would rather spend the day curled up in your lap? And then there is the feral cat. Regardless of their color, size, or how cute they may look, feral cats are not of the same caliber as the affectionate, cuddly house cat.
Let's start by defining what a feral cat is. The word feral means: in a wild state, especially after escape from captivity or domestication. A feral animal isn't an animal that was birthed in the wild. It is a creature that was once in the care of humans. This could be anything from a beloved pet to a farm animal like a rooster or pig.
