God's Feral Felines is committed to making a difference in the lives of owned, and unowned cats in Marshall County Alabama.  With a dedicated board of 5 members, and our fabulous volunteers, over 2400 cats have been sterilized through our 3 programs.  If you are feeding a feral cat colony, or know someone who is, and want help with spaying and neutering the cats, please contact us.  Many times we can also assist individuals with getting their owned cats spayed and neutered.

Our Programs

 
 
Feral Cat Program

Our feral cat program started on October 13, 2013.  Since that time God's Feral Felines has spayed or neutered over 1500 cats.  Typically, female cats have 3 litters each year; therefore, this translates to thousands of kittens who will not be born to die early or live the difficult, dangerous, and often painful adult feral life.

Kitty Project 

 

The Marshall County area has no low-cost spay or neuter clinics.  God's Feral Felines is actively tackling this problem by subsidizing spay and neuter costs for those who cannot afford to pay the entire amount.

Kitten Rescue

GFF Started rescuing kittens in 2016 when we were contacted by a local (new) PetSmart, and asked if we could supply kittens.  Up to that point, rescue was sporadic for us.  The partnership opened up new opportunities for more kittens to be rescued.

What is TNR

Trap neuter-Return or better known as TNR, is the humane and effective approach for managing stray and feral cats in an area.  Now practiced for decades in the US, scientific studies show that TNR programs improve the lives of feral cats, improves their relationships with the people that live near them, and decreases the size of colonies over time.

TNR is exactly as it sounds:  Carts are humanely trapped and taken to a veterinarian to be neutered or spayed and vaccinated.  After recovery, the cats are returned to thier outdoor homes.  Kittens and cats who are friendly and socialized to people may be adopted into homes.  

Research has shown, that TNR programs not only stop reproduction, but also improves the cats lives by reducing the stress that is inherent in a breeding colony.  Fact is, animal control, pounds and many shelters have been removing and killing feral cats for decades with no end in sight.  With TNR programs available, the senseless killing of cats with zero results needs to come to an end.  TNR is the solution for these beautiful creatures.  

DID YOU KNOW?

  • TNR results in fewer to no births

  • Reduction of nuisance complaints

  • Lower animal control costs

  • Less cats being euthanized.

  • Healthier colony

The coordination between those that feed feral cat colonies and those that are trapping is imperative to the success of TNR’ing a colony.

The number of feral cats is estimated to be in the millions.

Ear tipping is a universally accepted way of marking a feral cat that has been spayed or neutered.

Relocation of feral cats is extremely difficult.   Feral cats are very connected to their territory.   They know their shelters, food sources, other cats in the area and any local threats to their safety.  All these work to help them survive.   Relocation is only considered when there is a threat to their lives.

Cats are “seasonally polyestrus”, which means that once the days start getting longer (in Alabama typically from February to late fall) cats start coming into heat. They remain in heat for 1-7 days.   If they are not impregnated, they go thru a short period of 1-2 weeks not in heat, and then right back into heat. They will continue to do this until either the cat gets pregnant or the season ends. This cycle pretty much guarantees, that any unsterilized female cat that is not kept away from male cats will get pregnant. This and the fact that cats can have up to 3 litters per year is the reason cats reproduce so quickly.
