There are unsung heroes who walk amongst us. Without hesitation, without recognition, and without fail, these people work tirelessly to improve the lives of animals. They come from all walks of life, all sorts of backgrounds, all shapes and sizes. What do they have in common? Helping feral cats. Anyone who’s ever met a feral cat caretaker knows what I’m talking about. These are people who go above and beyond the call of duty, dedicating hours of their time and in many cases their own money, because they are committed to helping homeless kitties. By finding, feeding, and earning the trust of feral cats, these heroes are often able to identify groups of feral cats living together, provideĀ Trap-Neuter-Return, and get them vet care. And through the befriending of colonies of felines who would otherwise sadly live unnoticed and uncared for, feral cat caretakers are helping to reduce the feral cat population while improving their quality of life. Yes, feral cat caretakers notice these animals. They hear their purrs and look into their eyes and they acknowledge them as worthy beings who need our assistance. They answer the call.

In some special cases, feral cat caretakers are even able to rehabilitate kittens or young cats and secure them forever homes. If you’d like to read an inspiring article about heroes, or learn more about helping feral cats, click here.
