What is paradise to a feral cat? (We all know what paradise
is to a house cat!..laps, toys, petting and ...dinner!) What
happens to cats who live and breed outside and who's kittens
become feral, approximately 1/2 of all American cats? Without
organized caregivers this can become a tragic situation of
surviving cats having many litters of kittens a year - these
cats and kittens starve, can become unhealthy, are afraid of close
human contact and make kind people wonder why somebody isn't
doing something about it. Practicing humane TNR (trap/neuter/return)
is what Paw! is about
- we do it out of passion and conscience, saving tax payers
many 1000's of dollars a year and have healthy (and fortunately
dwindling numbers) of some very happy felines! Feral cats
DO have a home – outdoors!
Some of the colonies have abandoned sweet indoor cats that wait for the caretaker of the colony to arrive everyday and are able to be petted and picked up. These cats and kittens are absolutely 100% adoptable!
On our site you'll find:

Coyote threat to free roaming cats and small dogs is a grim reality in urban and suburban Atlanta.
From all corners of Atlanta people are reporting free roaming house cats disappearing along with a growing coyote population. Vinings GA has hired trappers to regain pet safe territory. Unwary ferals are also disappearing with the surviving felines staying closer to parking lots and human activity, understanding that members of their colonies are being eaten and that coyote's are more terrified of human activity than they. Please hang close to the parking lots, cars and lights our feral friends! Under Coyote Watch are articles detailing the situation.
