Walvis Feral Cats

Have-a-Heart Walvis Bay is very busy with trapping feral cats in Walvis Bay. Feral cats are a much needed work force, BUT they must not be left alone – humans have the responsibility to make sure the cats are not hungry, thirsty, cold, sick, injured or suffer – and definitely DON’T multiply!

Next time you are downtown Walvis Bay, think of the cats who are dutifully clean the streets of rats and mice at night! 🐁🐀

The Walvis Bay team is very experienced but they had a big surprise last week:

They wanted to help find a missing cat and a similar looking one had been spotted in the area. Sadly the missing cat haven’t been found yet, but they certainly didn’t expect to find three other cats inside the traps!

This clearly shows how hungry the cats are… All three cats didn’t choose this life, they are the result of unsterilised house cats!

The cats, one girl and two boys, are sterilised and this will improve their lives a lot! The female will not have to give birth to and raise kittens anymore, which is a huge relief for her! The males will not fight about territories and females any more, once their hormones have subsided in about three months.

All three can now focus on finding food and look after themselves.

Have-a-Heart Walvis Bay has already trapped, neutered and returned 35 cats in Walvis Bay this year!

Well done!
