You may have noticed stray cats in your garden. If they seem to have no other home, they may be a wild cat. A wild cat is a domestic cat who has been born and raised without contact with humans, or a cat who has not had contact with humans for a significant period of time and has become unsocialized.
Usually this happens when they are dumped by owners no longer willing or able to care for them. Others have been left behind when their owners moved house or passed away. Some are lost.

These cats endure a very difficult life, often struggling to survive in sometimes harsh conditions with not enough to eat on a daily basis, a lack of adequate shelter from the elements and with no access to veterinary treatment. All are trying to survive as best they can
