Alley Cat Rescue has been taking care of 11 colonies of cats for many years. We make sure all are sterilized and we feed them daily. Every day, on holidays and even when it rains or snows!
Most of the colonies have declined in size over time, but in just a few instances, new cats have joined the colonies, mostly when the cats are near an apartment complex. Many people move and leave behind their cats “to fend for themselves” ---this is a very bad idea as most cats cannot fend for themselves---many cats cannot hunt, despite the idea that environmentalists have tried to implant in our heads that all cats hunt.
Our outdoor cats are always in good condition. We provide them with shelters filled with clean straw (note - NOT hay, blankets, or towels) and feeding stations so the food remains dry. Cats live quite well outdoors, if fed and provided with shelters.
Years ago when we heard that often caretakers of cats-- indoors and outdoors -- died or became disabled, and left no provision in their wills for someone to take of their cats, we developed our Pet Trust Brochure. This brochure shows you how to plan for your own cats and for the colonies you take care of should anything happen to you.
