Feral Cats

Feral cats are the offspring of lost or abandoned pet cats that were never spayed or neutered.
Some are fed and fostered by people, but others are not so lucky, and so we appeal to you to open up your small-holding or farm for them to call home, not as a pet, but as a feral wild cat.

If you are interested in fostering feral cats, please contact Engela James at 083 468 3143.

We have been trying to contact Mrs J Van Niekerk to thank her for her generous donation to Cats'9Lives but the cell number given on the Bank form is incorrect.

Become a volunteer

Want to get involved, why not volunteer by becoming one of our foster moms?

We provide the milk, pellets and take kittens in to be homed when they are old enough, but bottle feeding is a most rewarding job as it is so worthwhile to watch their development.

Cat Trivia:

As with many predators, cats have retractable claws. This is actually a misnomer because in their normal, relaxed position the claws are sheathed with the skin and fur around the toe pads. This is done to keep the claws sharp by preventing wear from contact with the ground. It is only by stretching, such as a cat swatting at prey, that the connecting tendons are pulled taut, forcing the claws to extend. Thus, extending the claws is an involuntary action for cats.
