cat face feral cat:   A cat that is domesticated but has been abandoned, lost or neglected and forced to survive on his/her own is a stray.

Rescue A Feral Cat!
There are millions of feral cats in need of loving homes. Feral cats are almost always euthanized at shelters because they are not given the chance to learn to trust people. Shelters are overcrowded and the staff does not have the time it takes to work with these cats. Many cat rescue groups will not even help feral cats because they consider them unadoptable. If you have the time and patience to devote to one of these cats, let your local shelter/rescue group know!

Charlie Rescue - Don't Breed!

There are already too many.
Charlie and his mother, sister, and two brothers were rescued. They were lucky. Many are not.

Introducing A New Cat To Your Other Cats Is Not As Hard As You Might Think....
"I was having a terrible time, as I had just adopted Mittens, my shelter kitty. Patches, the resident kitty was being a real pain to her and I was really worried about every little thing that happened. Many times a day I would email Shell and ask her advice or need a shoulder to cry on. It seemed everything was going wrong and my girls were never going to get along. She supported me 100% and never got upset with my questions. She was patient and supportive and with her help, I got through the tough time of getting two females to, if not like each other, at least tolerate each other. Thanks again, Shell."

It was my pleasure, Toni! To meet Toni's cats, visit her web site The Calico Girls.
