The Scoop on Feral Cats PSA

Here's a video Jackson shot just recently in support of Alley Cat Allies, the nation’s largest advocacy group for cats, and National Feral Cat Day (October 16).

National Feral Cat Day

“On National Feral Cat Day, we celebrate the growing movement to protect the lives of outdoor cats with humane and effective programs like Trap- Neuter-Return (TNR),” said Becky Robinson, president and co-founder of Alley Cat Allies.

In the video, Jackson reminds viewers that feral cats are

  • not socialized to people
  • cannot be adopted
  • and says that “TNR helps reduce the number of cats being killed in our shelters each year—and that’s something we all want.”

Says Becky, “My Cat From Hell is great entertainment, but Jackson’s work and mission is also critical—to educate guardians about their cats’ behavior, bring harmony to the home, and save those cats from a tragic fate in an animal pound or shelter.  We share that mission in our work, because feral cats who end up in shelters are almost always killed there.  And although more than 330 local governments have ended ‘catch and kill’ and embraced TNR, there is still much more work to be done to spread this positive change.”

Alley Cat Allies spearheaded the movement for TNR in the United States in the early 1990s, and founded National Feral Cat Day in 2000.  Hundreds of events are held across the U.S. to mark the day.  Get some cool gear and check them out at www.nationalferalcatday.org
