Feral Cat Manual


This manual aims to provide the best information to those who want to help feral cats – so you don’t have to learn the hard way.

Working with ferals is not the same as rescuing and rehoming pet or stray cats – it needs a very different attitude and approach and a new set of skills.

Under FAB’s* banner, the various authors of the Feral Cat Manual bring together a unique mix of expertise and experience in an effort to pass on years of knowledge and tried and tested methods.

  • Cats, cats and feral cats
  • Trap-neuter-release: the best solution

  • Addressing the particular problem
  • Trapping: the equipment
  • Trapping: the theory and the practice

  • Queens and kittens
  • Feral cats as pets
  • Working around the world
