Help control Natchez’s feral cats
Look around Natchez, particularly downtown, and spotting a wild animal isn’t difficult. Natchez has an abundance of feral cats. The cats are effectively wild creatures at this point. While they may look like harmless house cats the feral cats have lived on the streets and away from human hands for so long that they would probably scratch and claw who managed to get near.
Unchecked the population of feral cats can quickly get out of hand.
With a female being capable of producing two litters each year and new kittens about to reproduce approximately six months after birth, it doesn’t take long before their numbers get pretty high. Fortunately a small group of volunteers are working hard to catch the wild, undomesticated cats and get them fixed to stop their population from continuing to grow.
As their funds allow, they seek to catch feral cats and pay to have them spayed or neutered and either release them back where they were found or relocate them to a safe location.
But the group needs your help — and your donations — to continue the work.
To contribute make checks payable to Mississippi Spay and Neuter, and mail to 100 Business Center Parkway, Suite B, Pearl, MS 39208. Also indicate on the check that the funds are for the “Natchez Feral Cat program.”
