Charities tackle feral cat colony
5th October 2017

By Karen Pickwick

Four Yorkshire animal charities have pooled their resources to humanely address an out-of-control feral cat colony in Dewsbury.

In late summer, Cats Protection began a targeted effort to find and capture feral cats living on the Dewsbury Moor estate. They found a staggering number of cats that had never been in human hands, many of which were nursing young kittens.
Yorkshire Cat Rescue is managing the effort of raising the kittens, including picking up the vet bill, which has been growing as many of the kittens were so unwell they had to spend the night at the vet.
