Help for Cats

 

I Have an Injured Feral

What do I do?

Taking care of feral cats can be very rewarding, but when one is injured or sick it can be difficult to know how to help. Many veterinarians are not equipped to handle feral cats nor do they have the experience to deal with their unique issues. Luckily in Colorado, we have a large community of feral cat lovers and veterinarians who are able to work with feral cats . Here is a list of vet clinics who provide the extra veterinary care to a feral cats in need. 

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
