Semi feral cats need homes too

Wednesday, March 17th, 2010

The cattery has now re-opened after being closed for nearly a month due to an outbreak of cat flu. Many of the cats are now reserved, however, finding homes for semi feral cats seems to be difficult, as they are often overlooked.

Semi feral cats are cats that have partially reverted back to their original wild state, which happens when the are not handled and socialised to help keep them happy and domesticated. It can take months or even years to fully domesticate a semi feral and requires a lot of time and patience. It is very rewarding when results are achieved. Semi feral cats are also happy for space and freedom and would easily suit being farm cats as long as they have shelter to call their own.

Bath Cats & Dogs Home is the last hope for these cats as other rehoming and rescue centres turn them away or put them down. We have a large waiting list of semi feral cats wanting to come in to us to find a new home. We will do our best to find every single one a new loving home whether it takes weeks, months or years.

If you are interested in rehoming a semi feral cat or even 2 to keep each other company, please speak to cattery staff. Semi ferals can be found in the main cattery, S cattery and Royle.
