Feral cats are domestic cats, just like pet cats and stray cats. However, feral cats differ from pet or stray cats in that they are not socialized to people. Hissing and growling are defense mechanisms that a feral cat will exhibit when approached by humans.
The East Bay SPCA will spay/neuter feral cats for a $30.00 fee/cat (by appointment only). This fee also includes a rabies and FVRCP vaccine, and an ear notch. Click here for more information about if a cat qualifies for our low-cost feral cat spay/neuter.
