Cats that are abandoned must contend with horrible conditions and problems that result in a slow and painful death. These include: starvation, dehydration, the elements, disease, predators, injuries, accidents, not to mention the loneliness, stress and fear of being alone and in unfamiliar surroundings.
Feral cats are the offspring of stray or abandoned domestic cats who revert to the wild state. Raised without human contact, they become fearful of humans.
Feral and abandoned cats live an average of only 2 years.
One mating pair of cats can produce 420,000 offspring in 7 years! Think of all of those helpless kittens born in the wild where only 1 in 5 will survive. Please spay and neuter your pet.
Cats can be spayed/neutered no later than 6 months of age, when they become sexually mature.
CatNap is looking for dependable people to promote awareness and help fulfill the purpose of helping abandoned cats in the Nanaimo area. The selfless giving of your time enables us to make a difference.
It only takes a few hours a month. And, it will make you feel great!
