Feral cats are a specific subset of homeless cats. They are distinguished from stray cats in that while stray cats are pet cats that become homeless, feral cats are the offspring or descendants of domesticated cats who are born in the wild. Feral Cat Day was created by the Alley Cat Allies organization to bring attention to the existence of feral cats, and to the humane, no-kill method to deal with them, specifically the three-step process of trap-neuter-return. That’s trap, meaning safe and humane capture; neuter, meaning fixing the cats so they can’t perpetuate the homeless-cat problem; and return, because sadly, feral cats aren’t acclimated to domestic living and generally cannot be adopted.
