These Are So Many Stray Cats. So, That Means There Are Plenty Of Opportunities For The I Don’t Own A Cat Photos.
So, it is estimated that there are approximately 70 million stray cats in the United States alone. Most of these homeless cats were abandoned by their previous owners while some simply got lost. However, you should keep in mind that there’s a huge difference between a stray cat and a feral cat. Just like we explained earlier, a stray cat had a previous owner. Hence, stray cats can still socialize and trust people. On the other hand, a feral cat never had any contact with humans its entire life. As a result, feral cats are fearful of people and would try to avoid human contact as much as possible.

There Is a Difference Between Feral and Stray Cats
It’s almost impossible to tame feral cats and they tend to become dangerously aggressive if you try to touch them. Stray cats, on the other hand, tend to depend on people for food and shelter in order to survive. For instance, some stray cats would break into random houses to get food or shelter. But we need to understand that they would go these lengths when they need to. As pre-owned pets, they tend to have a bit of remaining trusts on humans which compels them to approach people and ask for help. However, a stray cat can become a feral cat when contacts with humans dwindle.

Taking In Stray Cats Can Help To
Taking in a stray cat is also a great way to adopt a homeless pet. But take note that adopting a stray cat is not as simple as opening your doors for them and claiming them as your own. If you happen to find a stray cat in your home, try to give it something to eat as it is most likely starving. And if you have other household pets, try to isolate the stray cat from them. Once you’ve fed a stray cat, there’s a high chance that it will pay you a visit again. If that’s the case, take that chance to help it get used to you by talking to it while it is in an isolated room. Take it slowly but surely. Try to approach and touch it, but don’t force it when it shows signs of aggressiveness.

Always Check For A Microchip
If it doesn’t mind getting touched or petted then you can safely take it to the vet. Chances are, the stray cat might be a lost pet and its owner might be looking for it. Ask the vet if the kitty has a microchip. If it has a microchip, contact the owner right away. Remember, a kitty without a microchip doesn’t automatically mean it doesn’t have an owner. Take a photo of the cat along with your contact number and post them around your neighborhood. You can also make use of social media to share the photo. This would allow the owner to find the missing pet. However, if no one comes to claim the stray cat 7 days after posting the photos then you may consider it as an un-owned cat.
“Woke Up This Morning To This…”
There are two possibilities when dealing with a stray cat.
You can turn it over to an animal shelter to help it find its forever home. Or you can opt to adopt it and take it in as a member of your family. But before you introduce it to your home, make sure to bring the stray cat to the vet first for a checkup, vaccinations, any necessary medication, deworming and neutering.
