For the most part, feral cats are at home outdoors. But since they aren’t spayed or neutered, their population continues to increase, leaving more and more animals vulnerable to life-threatening situations.
“If they’re born outside, they can die from exposure to the cold,” Cindra Anderson, with Emerald Coast Animal Allies, said. “They can drown … a lot of them are picked up by hawks … I’ve seen a lot of suffering.”
Anderson will teach two workshops Saturday about trap, neuter and release — one from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. and another from 6 to 7 p.m. at the Escambia Public Library. To register, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
