|What Are Feral Felines?
Feral felines are domestic cats that are now wild and no longer desire human contact. Some were born feral and some of them start off as family pets. Because of cruel or ignorant people, these pets were abandoned and forced to survive on their own.
Ferals exists in colonies anywhere food can be located - dumpsters, college campuses, apartment complexes, etc. Even if only a small amount of food can be found, they will continue to reproduce and bring kittens into the world that cannot be sustained. However, for many ferals, the health and quality of life is dramatically improved through the loving dedication of caretakers who provide food, water and simple shelter.
Feral cat populations provide an invaluable service to our environment. They are great mousers and help keep the rodent and snake populations under control. If these cats are unhealthy, they can&rsquot do their job. The Lake Norman Lucky Cat Program recognizes the necessity of feral cats and values their existence. Rather than eradicate the colonies, we attempt to stabilize them through the TNR Program. Ferals are released back to their original environment where volunteers continue to provide for their care.
