Lets Chat About Cats - Episode 53 - Featuring Nancy from Feral Care Sanctuary

Introducing the incredible Nancy from Feral Care Sanctuary in this episode.

Nancy started her work many years ago and has never looked back since. Understanding the great need to help feral cats who are misunderstood and who were the most likely to be euthanised in shelters with the number as high as 25 a week in the US Nancy knew that help could only be a positive change and so the Sanctuary was born.

The Sanctuary is a real oasis for these cats who need to feel safe and loved but on their own terms, the environment is set out to replicate the perfect world for a feral cat. With many places to stay hidden when they wish, high cat trees or beds and spaces where they can bask in the sun or watch the pesky crows who sit outside and tease them the space is created from the cats perspective to make it natural and pleasant. Not every cat wants a home or to sit on a lap and all they want or need is to be safe, this is exactly how they can live here. They are respected for being who they are and that is truly special.

Caring for 100 cats at any time is not easy and especially when  they are often not able to be handled for medical care and the worst thing anyone can do is add extra stress to these cats when such changes can be hard to adapt to anyway. However, this is a second chance for them to spend many happy days in a place which is a world away from the only one many of them have ever known.

Nancy shared insight into the feral cat, their behaviours, what it is like caring for them, the highs and lows and most importantly why relocating a feral should only ever be as a last resort.

You will find this episode very informative and moving too for those who follow my page will know a special cat called Marley was relocated here after being rescued by Karen PDX Trapper and Nancy updated me on him.
