What is a feral cat?
According to the Solano Feral Group website,
A feral cat is either a cat who has lived his whole life with little or no human contact and is not socialized, or a stray cat who was lost or abandoned and has lived away from human contact long enough to revert to a wild state. Feral cats avoid human contact and cannot be touched by strangers.
The problem with feral cats is that unless someone decides to do something the population continues to grow unchecked. Many communities have a problem with feral cat populations. Solano County is fortunate to have the Solano Feral TNR Task Force working to control the population.
The low-cost spay/neuter clinic at the SPCA of Solano County is happy to spay & neuter feral cats. The special fee for feral cats is the surgery (male or female), a rabies vaccine, and an ear tipping for $40. Appointments are required so give s a call and let us know if you are trying to trap cats to bring in for spay or neuter. We know that you can’t know for sure if the cats will cooperate with your plans so just call and give us a heads up!
