How to Provide Extra Recovery Time to a Feral Cat
When helping an injured feral cat, it is important to consider the necessary recovery period. These cats may need to be kept indoors for an extended period of time before they can be returned to their territory. This process can be stressful for the cat and the caretaker. If necessary and appropriate, the easiest way to keep a feral cat for recovery is in an extra-large dog kennel, with a litter box (use only clay litter, no clumping), food bowls, and a feral cat hide-y box.
Never keep a feral cat for longer than necessary; this can cause undue stress. We recommend only keeping a feral cat for as long as a recommenced by a veterinarian.
Never hesitate to call us if you are ever worried about one of the cats in your care. (844) - 336- 2287
