Welcome to the Search UK Specialist Feral Cat Service
Feral Cats ( Felis cattus )
The Feral cat is a small carnivorous mammal. Its ancestor is believed to be the African Wild Cat
( Felis libyca ), although many scientists think this is simply a race of the European Wild cat ( Felis sylvestris ) of Europe and Western Asia. All cats belong to the family felidae. A feral cat is not a different breed of cat, merely a domestic cat which has become "wild" and now fends for itself.
Feral cats are somewhat omnivorous, although they are carnivores by nature. This means that they can eat domestic and farm birds, wild birds and small rodents including domestic pets such as gerbils and hamsters and possibly rabbits.
The cat has learnt to live alongside man, and as such feral cats can be found in or around most of man's modern environments.
