How to Help Community Cats
Adapted for Ireland from Alley Cat Allies.
Feral cats require a special veterinary approach that takes into account their unique needs, reflective of their health, the fact that they are unsocialised to humans and the fact that their interactions with veterinarians are limited.
Between this section and our Vet Pack you’ll find information about: neutering feral cats, including protocol and research on early-age spay/neuter; eartipping procedure (for identification); the facts about FIV and FeLV; and information to share with clients on follow-up care.
