FERAL REMOVAL
Feral Cat Removal Big LakeTechnically, feral cats are born and raised without human contact. Their instincts are highly developed for survival, so they are extremely fearful of people. Some cats that were previously owned revert to feral behavior. Some feral are cats have been lost or abandoned by there owners. Many people erroneously believe that cats can fend for themselves. Cat owners often abandon their cats when they move or simply no longer want the responsibility of pet ownership. Such cats survive only if they find food, shelter, and avoid dangers such as injury from cars, dogs, other cats, or abusive humans. They are rarely spayed, neutered or vaccinated, and their offspring are raised without human contact. Within a few years, one or two cats can produce a colony of twenty or more.  Feral and stray cats live difficult lives as they are susceptible to disease, starvation and the freezing conditions of trying to survive a Minnesota winter. Left on their own, they breed future generations of feral cats who face the same fate. An estimated 60 million cats are considered homeless in our country. Feral cats breed frequently, adding to an already overwhelming pet overpopulation problem. Without intervention, their lives are filled with danger, disease, hunger, fear, temperature extremes, and usually end in a slow, painful death. Humane population control of feral cats is a crucial step in preventing suffering and proliferation. If you have feral cats on your property the worst thing you can do is to feed them, before you know it you will be overwhelmed with hungry cats looking for a free hand out. If you let your cat roam freely outdoors, PLEASE have the animals neutered or spade.

Feral Cat Control
When feral cats take over your property Nuisance Wildlife Control can handle the problem. If the problem cat belongs to a neighbor please call your local animal control or better yet talk to your neighbor, we do not trap domestic cats, dogs or other privately owned animals, if you can approach the animal it probably has an owner. Nuisance Wildlife Control will only use humane traps to capture the feral animals. These animals will be delivered to the nearest Animal shelter. Some of these shelters practice trap, neuter, vaccinate, & release (TNVR) and have there own release sites. Some will try to rehabilitate and adopt the animals; other will euthanize all feral animals. I have no control with what the animal shelters do with the wild animals after we deliver them. Most feral cats will live under your deck, under a shed or in your wood pile.

Diseases
Stray cats are a source of fatal and non-fatal diseases transmittable to humans and domestic cats, including rabies, plague, ringworm, toxoplasmosis, cat scratch fever, allergies, feline leukemia, feline distemper and secondary bacterial infections.
