A feral Cat is a descendant of a domesticated cat that has returned to the wild.
It is distinguishably from a stray cat, which is a pet cat that has been lost or abandoned, while feral cats are born in the wild the offspring of a stray cat can be considered feral if born in the wild.Feral cats are distinct from stray cats or lost pets in their attitude toward humans; whereas a stray or lost cat may approach humans and can be handled easily, feral cats typically resist prolonged human contact. A domestic cat that has reverted to wild, unsocialized behavior, or a descendent of such a cat.
Feral cats live without significant human contact and they are not socialized to interact with humans. Their behavior is generally wary, fearful or aggressive depending on the situation. Feral cats are most frequently found in urban and suburban areas, though breeding populations of feral cats can occur anywhere.
We always have feral and semi feral cats looking for homes outdoors in stables farms etc. We don’t ask adoption fee for ferals but donations always appreciated, we usually home feral farm cats in pairs as find they are happier and work better with company but understand if you only want one. We would expect you to feed twice daily to ensure their good health. They would need to be kept confined for a week or two, preferably near spot where they will get their daily feeds, until they settled, after which it would be a case of leaving access open till they confident enough to venture out which usually happens at night. Due to the nature of feral cats we usually bring them to you rather than arrange pre adoption viewing as if you were to visit them in foster pen they will likely hide
