Conflicts and Threats to Feral Cat Colonies
While caring for a feral cat colony you may encounter different levels of conflicts or threats to the cats. Ideally, as a caregiver, you can proactively educate your neighbors, preemptively foster an open line of communication that will prevent any negative situations from escalating, and resolve issues with neighbors even when an issue seems small, so that it the situation doesn’t escalate.
However, there may be times when confrontations or even threats arise. This can seem scary, but there are steps you can take to protect yourself and the cats, prevent further escalation, and resolve most situations.
