Global Cat Day 2017

Today is Global Cat Day—a day for people around the world to stand up for policies that protect all cats in their communities. Global Cat Day is taking the place of National Feral Cat Day, which was initiated by Alley Cat Allies, a global engine of change for cats, in 2001. This campaign is racing toward a goal of 100,000 people signing a pledge to support advocacy efforts for all cats, including cats who call the outdoors their home. 

In support this this day, we've compiled videos we took with Audra Farrell, Community Cares supervisor for the San Francisco SPCA, regarding all her organization has done for feral cats. Learn how you can help—both as a veterinarian and as a member of your community—to protect and care for all cats living outside.

Audra Farrell, Community Cares supervisor for the San Francisco SPCA, says she encourages those who are already feeding stray cats in their community to be involved in trapping those stray cats.

The people who are feeding cats in their community are the most successful when it comes to trapping stray cats. This is because the cat already has a routine with this person—a specified feeding time each day. This makes it easier to trap train the stray cats and get them to an animal shelter to be spayed or neutered.
