Today is National Feral Cat Day. In celebration, Planned PEThood of GA held a mega trapping event in Gwinnett County last week. In one morning, 12 volunteers trapped 61 cats and kittens thanks to a grant from Petco Love. These cats were at five locations in Norcross and Lilburn overrun with feral cats, imagine how many more are out there!
Feral cat day is a day to celebrate cats of all stripes, no matter where they call home. Feral cats have been stigmatized the world over, but thanks to this holiday, we can change how we see these lovable nomads. While these cats may not want to be pets, they still deserve food, shelter, and basic medical care.
This mega trapping event was able to ensure the 61 cats and kittens were vaccinated for rabies, ensuring the safety of the community, and spayed/neutered, preventing hundreds of births. After recovery from surgery, the cats were returned to their ‘homes’ to live out their lives with caregivers.
We hope you will join us in celebrating community cats in your neighborhood today!
