A cat colony consists of several cats living together in a certain area according to clear rules and a certain hierarchy. The individual "members" benefit from the community in many ways.
EXCITING CAT COLONIES
They are free-living animals that do not belong to anyone. They usually stay near human settlements where they can count on food.
Cat colonies makes our work easier. In contrast to solitary animals, cats living in a group can be more easily caught, neutered, vaccinated and treated for parasites. We also notice other illnesses or accidents more quickly and do what is necessary. Here is the example of Garfield...
Garfield lives in a cat colony at Tricase IT and has already lost an eye due to his severe Coryza. He is now receiving antibiotics until the infection has healed well and will of course be neutered at the same time. Then he can return to his new home, healthy and happy.
The cooperation with animal-loving people who take care of these cats is very important.
If they notice an injured or sick animal, they contact us. Thanks to such a collaboration, we were able for example to treat an abscess on the left front paw of this male cat and bring him back to his territory after a few days.
The cooperation of committed animal lovers is also extremely valuable during castration campaigns. With the additional active support, we can organise and carry out these operations more efficiently - for example, here when catching the cats.
Captured animals are brought to our vets for neutering and after the operation they are released back into their colony.
In this way, unwanted births can be prevented or better controlled. In addition, the cats remain in a manageable area where the vets in the field can provide them with medical care if necessary.
With your support, we will continue to take care of such well-functioning social colonies. Thank you very much!
