All About Feral Cats - Facts

 

Feral cats are a growing issue in the United States - nearly half of the cats in the United States are feral, and overpopulation leads to increased cat euthanization in shelters.

The Feral Cat Coalition estimates that there are over 60 million stray cats in the United States. The U.S. Department of Agriculture estimates there are an additional 5 million domestic cats abandoned annually.

Stray Cats

Critter Library - Feral Cat Stray Facts

 

A stray cat is a cat that has been allowed to roam by its owner and has been unable to find its way home.

 

 

 

 

 

Feral Cats

 

A feral cat is a cat that has been abandoned or the offspring of an abandoned cat and does not live under the direct supervision of a human but will live and reproduce near human population.

 

 

 

 

 

Quick Statistics

 

The Feral Cat Coalition estimates that there are over 60 million stray cats in the United States. The U.S. Department of Agriculture estimates there are an additional 5 million domestic cats abandoned annually.

 

A female cat is capable of reproducing two litters per year producing two to ten kittens per litter.

Critter Library - Feral Cat Facts

 

To place these numbers in perspective, the AVMA 1993 US Pet Ownership and Demographic study estimates that there are 57 million domestic cats as of 1991.

 

The existing stray cat population and its annual replenishment through natural reproduction and abandonment of domestic cats causes significant problems.

 

The average life span for a stray cat is 3 to 5 years. Eventually they will die from starvation, disease, dogs, or motor vehicles. Failure to prevent or control a stray cat population amounts to inhumane treatment.
