Emergency Care for Feral Cats
If you care for one or more feral cats, at some time you may have a sick cat or injured cat in the colony. What should you do? The following tips may help:
1. Plan ahead. For example, is the veterinarian willing to treat a feral cat? Is an appointment needed? Can you afford to pay for treatment? Where can the cat recover if an extended recovery period is needed?
2. Safety first. Protect yourself from cat bites and scratches. If you have to move an injured cat, wear heavy gloves and protective clothing. Have a working flashlight at hand.
3.To protect yourself and the cat, use a humane trap or sturdy carrier for pick-up and transport to the veterinarian. Keep a supply of cat food, water, blankets, and towels handy if they are needed. Use a tarp or old shower curtain to protect your vehicle's interior.
4. A pet first aid kit may be helpful in some cases or you may want to carry a few basic items such as bandages, latex gloves, antiseptic, flea repellent, and antibacterial wipes. the Humane Society of the United States has a complete list.
5. Enlist the assistance of other caregivers if possible. They may have additional information about a particular cat, an illness, or injury in the colony.
