Success story for our feral cats

You may remember our previous blogs about our new feral garden and some of the feral cats we managed to help. We have been very lucky to rehome all of our feral cats and our feral garden is currently unoccupied and ready for any future cats we need to help.

Their new owner has set up a fantastic facebook group giving followers regular updates about some of our feral cats she has adopted from us. She has just installed night vision cameras in the sheds to closely monitor how they are doing and which cats are about when she is not around. Many she never sees come in feed during the night.
 In their new home there sheds and pens especially built for the cats with plenty of hides, shelves and beds to sleep in. There’s plenty of countryside for them to explore once they are let out and freshly cooked meat along with their regular cat food at meal times some of the food is kindly donated by members of the public. We are pleased to see Llama and Peewee growing in confidence each day, at the centre we often saw these two out and about in our feral garden. We are all so pleased they have settled in and doing so well. On Sunday she has adopted four more homeless feral cats from us which are Gunner, Mercedes, Elsie and Molly; we are looking forward to hearing how these four settle in over the next few weeks. We would like to thank their new owner for giving our feral cats a wonderful new home in the countryside. We thought we’d share some of photos of some of the cats settled in to their new home…..

Hello Kitty


Do you have a vacancy for an out-of-work mouser? CP always has feral cats, and they can't be rehomed in a domestic situation. True feral cats are the offspring of stray or abandoned domestic cats. They live where they can survive and may have little or no contact with humans. As a result, they are often scared of people and will avoid them. Farmers, stable owners and smallholders often value them as working mousers. A healthy feral colony is far more likely to keep vermin levels to a minimum. All they ask is for somewhere warm to sleep and shelter, such as an outbuilding, barn or stable, and to be fed regularly.

If you would like more information or wish to visit the centre, please call us on 01395 232377. If you prefer, you can send us an email on exeteraxhayes@cats.org.uk, or visit our website www.axhayes.cats.org.uk
