A feral cat has been separated from domestication and has returned to a wild state. They may live alone, but are usually found in groups called feral colonies.
It's important to spay/neuter ALL cats because they become pregnant repeatedly every year and have five to seven kittens in each litter. An unaltered female cat can produce hundreds of kittens in a lifetime, and if those offspring are not spay/neutered, the population explodes. Our shelter receives hundreds of feral cats and kittens every year. Please do everything you can to make sure that every cat is spayed or neutered.
