Many times in your life you’ve seen cats that are clearly stray cats wandering in the streets. In such a case, it is good to think of picking them up, but when a wild cat becomes a domestic cat, it also causes a lot of stress. It is important for those who are thinking of protecting and breeding cats from now on to follow the steps.
Procedures for protecting feral and wild cats
When you find a cat you want to protect, check the specific method of how to capture (protect) it. I will explain step by step.
1. Wild cats
In the case of a fully feral cat, there is the question of whether it can become a human. The hurdle is higher than the protection of domestic cats, and some cats do not get attached. Therefore, the difficulty is high, so in some cases you have no choice but to give up. Also, in the case of wild cats, the mother cat may be hunting somewhere. Therefore, please do not imitate recklessly tearing apart parent and child.
2. Get used to it over time
First of all, it’s obvious, but from a cat’s point of view, if someone they don’t know suddenly approaches them, they will be wary and intimidated. It should be bitten and scratched by the cat. It’s important to protect your cat after it’s taken time to forgive your heart. Stray cats and wild cats have many external enemies, so they are very vigilant.
3. Trap and carry case
Cat traps and carrying cases are necessary when protecting cats. Cats often calm down when you cover the carrying case with a towel, etc. so that they cannot see the surroundings, so prepare something to hang. Please be careful not to get scratched or injured when capturing. Prepare bait to lure the cat when you capture it.
4. go to the hospital
Take the rescued cat to the animal hospital immediately. This is to have your pet checked for any infections, fleas, ticks, etc. It may be cat AIDS, so please get it checked properly. If the cat you rescued is in poor health, you will have to go to the hospital for a while. By understanding the health condition of the rescued cat, you can also prevent the infection of the resident cat if you have a cat.
5. Check on SNS or the Internet
It is possible that the cat you picked up is a stray cat. There is a possibility that the protected cat is posted, so let’s check it. In some cases, we will contact the public health center or police station to confirm whether the cat is a stray.
If you decide to actually adopt a rescued cat and keep it, you should have it spayed or neutered in order to keep the cat. It is preferable to take the vaccine at the same time. Preventive measures that can be taken in advance should be taken at this point.
7. Breeding tools
When it comes to adopting and raising a rescued cat, you need to prepare an environment for raising a cat. Please provide gauges, blankets, toilet supplies, food, toys, etc. It is recommended that you prepare the minimum necessary items and buy more whenever you need them in your life.
Precautions when breeding
The cat suddenly changes its environment. I’ve been living outside for a long time, but I’m going to live in my room, and I’m confused by the change in the environment. If a human approaches in such a state, it will be in a state of panic. Give yourself time to become a cat. If the cat approaches you, it means that the cat’s heart has opened.
For multiple pets
Be careful if you have multiple dogs. Originally, cats like to live alone and prefer a free and carefree way of life. Therefore, they are not suitable for communal living. In some cases, you may start fighting with the resident cat, so in that case you have to consider living separately.
desire to go out
They often see indoor cats staring outside, which is also a sign of their desire to go outside. Some cats have such a strong desire to go outside that they keep meowing loudly. In that case, attach a leash and let it go outside under the supervision of the owner. However, it also entails risks, so if you are unsure, it is better not to go outside.
