What are feral cats?

Feral cats are described as domesticated cats that have reverted back to living in the wild. They are generally born and live outside, and are not cared for by people in any way. Unlike lost or stray cats, they have never been socialized to humans and therefore are scared and aggressive towards people.

Why do I have them?

Feral cats will choose to invade a property that gives them the three things that they need to live “comfortably” – food, water, and shelter. These things are probably being provided by you unintentionally. They could be eating the food that you are leaving out for your own pets, you may have a pond that they are using as a water source, or they could have found shelter in a shed or under a deck that is on your property.
