Homeless cats in paradise . . .
Kauai is home to a vast number of homeless or stray cats, some of whom have been born in the wild while others were once pets who have been abandoned by their owners. Kauai Ferals recognizes the impact stray cats may have on wildlife however we do not believe that killing cats to protect birds is either acceptable or effective. We also believe that stray cats themselves are animals deserving protection and care.
Spaying or neutering is one of the greatest gifts you can provide your pet, your family and your community. These routine medical procedures not only help control an overabundance of pets, but they may also prevent medical and behavioral problems from developing, allowing your pet to lead a longer, healthier and happier life.
We believe that TNRM (trap-neuter-return-manage) is the most effective way to reduce the population of homeless cats on our island. Because feral cats are not socialized and not adoptable, they do not belong in animal shelters, where virtually 100% of them are killed. Instead, feral cats should be neutered and returned to their outdoor home.

There are too many cats in paradise. Kauai Ferals is an advocate for humane methods of feral cat care.Trap-Neuter-Return-Manage is a compassionate way to help reduce the number of homeless cats on the island. We recognize that trapping and neutering feral and neighborhood cats and returning them to their original homes to be fed and monitored or managed will eventually reduce the population of cats on Kauai. We believe that stray cats themselves are animals deserving protection and care. Kauai Ferals believes strongly in educating our community about the necessity of spaying and neutering their petsRespecting the
life and worth of all sentient beings is inherently ethical and rightThere is more than one way to deal with feral animals: killing is not the only answerWe know that people love and value cats; we respect their compassionWe support community teamwork to achieve common goals With open hearts and open minds we can continue to find ways to improve the lives of cats.
