The most common coat colour of feral cats is striped tabby, but blotched tabby and black are also common. Other colour variants are also seen in the wild. Long hair is uncommon in feral cats and exotic breeds of cat such as Persian or
Siamese are not found in feral populations.
Feral cats are mostly solitary animals and usually maintain a home range which may be up to 10 sq km for males and less for females.
Feral or wild cats are skilled hunters and are a threat to the survival of many native species including small mammals, birds and reptiles. They are thought to be involved with the extinction of Australian native animals and have been implicated in the failure of endangered species reintroduction programs (eg. numbat, bilby, bandicoot). Approximately 80 endangered and threatened species are at risk from feral cat predation in Australia.
The economic loss inflicted by feral and domestic cats, based on bird predation alone, has been estimated at $144 million annually. Feral cats are also potential carriers of disease which may be harmful to stock and/or native animals.
Cats are also, valued members of many families across Victoria, however, some cats can cause nuisance in their neighbourhoods; often these cats are unregistered, unowned or wild.
Feral Cat Control or Cat Removal can only be performed with the aid of confignment (cage) trap.
Once a cat has been trapped or contained it must be delivered, as soon as reasonably possible to an Authorised Officer (also known as a Ranger or Animal Management Officer) of the Council, Council Pound or Council contracted Animal Shelter. It is an offence to abandon or dump a cat.
