Feral Cat Traps, Baits & Lures and More

Feral cats are house cats living in the wild. They are small in stature, weighing from 3 to 8 pounds. Colors range from black to white to orange, and an amazing variety of combinations in between. Other hair characteristics are vary greatly. Feral cats prefer areas in and around human habitation. They use abandoned buildings, barns, haystacks, post piles, junked cars, brush piles, weedy areas, culverts, and other places that provide cover and protect.

Trapping and removing feral cats can be done with Live Traps, Foot Hold Traps or Body Gripping traps. We also carry Baits and Lures for feral cat trapping and removal.

General Biology, Reproduction and Behavior.

Feral cats produce 2 to 10 kittens during any month of the year. An adult female  may product 3 litters per year where food and havitat are sufficient. Cats may be active during the day but typically are more active during twilight or night. House cats live up to 27 years. Feral cats, however, probably average only 3 to 5 years. They are territorial and move within a home range of roughly 1.5 square miles. After several generations, feral cats can be considered to be totally wild in habits and temperament. 

Damage and Damage Identification

Feral cats feed extensively on song birds, game birds, mice and other rodents, rabbits and other wildlife. In doing so, they lower the carrying capacity of an area for native predators such as foxes, raccoons, coyotes, bobcats, weasels and other animals that compete for the same food base. 

Where documented, their impact on wildlife populations in suburban and rural areas-directly by predation and indirectly by competition for food-appears enormous. A study under way at the University of Wisconsin may provide some indication of the extent of their impact in the United States as compared to that in the United Kingdom, where Britain’s five million house cats may take an annual toll of some 70 million animals an birds. Feral cats occasionally kill poultry and injure house cats.

Feral cats serve as a reservoir for human and wildlife diseases, including cat scratch fever, distemper, histoplasmosis, leptospirosis, mumps, plague, rabies, ringworm, salmonellosis, toxoplasmosis, tularemia, and various endo and ectoparasites.   Check out our products for Feral Cat Trapping and Removal.
