Wildcats – what if they live near you


If you live in a rural or even suburban environment, you may live near wild cats – those who seem to need some human help, rough wild cats, will only run away when approaching. These cats are not tamed and are never willing to be domestic cats. They are fully capable of living alone, whether or not it will damage some ecosystems.

If you find yourself surrounded by these untamed creatures, you have several options. First, you can leave them and claim that they are not your problem at all. This is a popular choice for many people, but it is by no means a good choice. There are more than 70 million wild cats in the United States alone, and scientists correctly accused the extinction of 33 species of birds. from

Huge from

Number of cats: kill, kill and eat a variety of birds, reptiles and rodent cats. This overpopulation can quickly lead to the extinction of other birds and even some prey. Also, who wants a wild cat to spray under and around their garage? Pooh.

The second option is to start feeding them. This is a better option, but it is still not the ideal third option, which we will discuss later. It is a good idea to feed these cats at a fixed time in the morning or evening and provide them with a home-made sanctuary – a cat that is not hungry will jump half-heartedly and is more likely to end empty after hunting. But it also led to other problems: the spread of disease and overpopulation. When neighboring pets mate with barbarism, diseases such as toxoplasmosis, parasites and rabies can be transmitted through bites or scratches. In turn, the disease can spread to unsuspecting owners as they interact with them. The disease may cause death in some cases, and grief will occur after the animal dies due to the disease. This means that the disease can spread to outdoor cats and may also be transmitted to you and your family!

In addition, cats are like rabbits in reproduction. If cats are not disinfected, they will have kittens. This increases the population and increases the risk factors for all the points mentioned above. As a cat caretaker, you must also increase the amount of food you feed for the animals every day because you need extra food to feed. You will also be given the task of taming and using kittens – and only a certain time window to complete this task.


The last option of Trap-Neuter-Return(T-N-R). This includes trapping cats using humane capture and release traps before disinfecting the cats and releasing them again. This eliminates almost all the problems of raising wild cats in your yard. Now that they have been sterilized, they will no longer have kittens, they will be vaccinated and dewormed so that they will not spread parasites or diseases, and they will not feel the urge to spray their territory.

Don’t be afraid to get your local shelter or community involved! They can do most, if not all, trapping and sterilization at very low prices or even for free, depending on where you live. They also tip the cat’s ear (remove the top of the ear) so they are not caught and trapped by other bona fide people and rescue organizations.

Now is the last issue: What about the bird? This is where you start feeding the cat. Feed them once or twice a day to make sure they are full. This also enhances their immune system, making them less likely to contract possible diseases that are not eliminated by vaccines or deworming. Now they are feeding every day, they are not likely to bother so much.

Wild cats are also good. They help keep the rats away from your barn. What’s interesting is watching. All they need is a bowl of food and space every day. It’s a wild, free-roaming cat. All you have to do is give them a chance!
