Architects of Change for Cats - National Feral Cat Day 2013

Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you thought you knew a lot about something but in reality you only knew a little bit? Well, if that is how you feel about feral cats and trap-neuter-return, this is the post for you.

I am an advocate for National Feral Cat Day 2013! What exactly is National Feral Cat Day (NFCD)? NFCD is a day to educate the world about Feral Cats. Read some facts of the truth about feral cats here.

I want to educate my community about community cats. The nation's animal shelter system is the #1 cause of death in cats. Let's work together to change that today!

Here are some facts brought to you by Alley Cat Allies:

  • Cats have lived outdoors for more than 10,000 years
  • More than 70% of all cats who enter shelters are killed there, including virtually 100% of feral cats
  • Feral cats can have the same lifespan as pet cats (And I have known many who have! - see this post about feeding cats on my local college campus here)
  • More than 40% of Americans have fed an outdoor cat
  • More than 80% of Americans think it is more humane to leave a stray cat where he is to live out his life than to have him caught and killed

I am an advocate for National Feral Cat day. Will you join me?

Watch Jackson Galaxy, star of Animal Planet's My Cat From Hell, talk about Trap-Neuter-Return!
