What are Community Cats?
Unlike stray cats, who have once been a companion house cat and was abandoned or become lost, community cats are born outside and been living their life out there. A community cat has never lived with a human family and generally forms colonies, making their home wherever they can find food, avoiding human contact whenever possible. Tomcats prowl for mates, females become pregnant, and the cycle of reproduction continues.
Community cats have a home – outdoors. Adult community cats are part of all landscapes. They usually cannot be socialized and are content living outdoors. Feral kittens can often be tamed and placed in homes, but they must be socialized in their first weeks of life. This is a critical window and if they aren’t handled in time, they will remain feral and therefore unadoptable.
