Feral Cat Blog! Note:
These days those interested can easily locate information online about the work or research and published papers of presenters.
Of related interest is recent information and research on how to keep feral or homeless cats out of animal shelters where they would only be traumatized and/or killed, how to tell the difference between feral and socialized cats, separately house feral cats from tame (duh) if feral cats must be housed, shelter enrichment programs for cats, enrichment for indoor cats in homes, outside enclosures for cats at homes, and so on.
