Feral Cats

Feral Cat Program

These are sometimes called community cats because many were once domesticated but have been abandoned or lost.

Unsterilized, females have litter after litter of kittens and form feral colonies of cats suffering from neglect, illness and starvation.

Passionate and committed cat lover, Jodi Kruger, is St Francis Animal Rescue’s ‘Cat Lady’, and it falls to her to single-handedly manage our Trap, Neuter and Return program.

Once trapped, cats and kittens are brought to Aloe Vet where Dr Nerine Botha tests their health.

All healthy cats are sterilized, vaccinated for rabies, dewormed, sprayed for fleas and ticks – and ear-tipped to identify them as spayed or neutered.

Healthy, trapped kittens are fostered by Jodi and a group of dedicated women until they are tamed and can be successfully adopted into loving homes.
