NATIONAL Feral Cat Day, observed annually on October 16, was launched in 2001 by Alley Cat Allies in the United States.

The day raises awareness about stray and feral cats and the need to trap and sterilise them in order to reduce the number of abandoned and unwanted kittens.

The campaign also recognises the millions of people and organisations worldwide that care, manage and feed feral, stray and abandoned cats.

NPO “Cats of Durban” ticks all these boxes, as their objective is to raise funds to pay for the sterilisation of KZN’s expanding feral cat population.

They also promote the benefits of a well-managed feral cat colony that plays a big part in vermin and rodent control.

To support the work that Cats of Durban do, Compass Cares, the CSI arm of Compass Medical Waste Services­, produce and sell an A3 wall calendar featuring feral or previously stray cats.

The 2018 kitten edition calendar costs R150, excluding postage, and all money raised goes to Cats of Durban’s sterilisation costs, which equates to around R500 per cat.

The calendar ambassadors and their children recently got together to promote National Feral Cat Day and the professionally designed, printed and gift-boxed calendar, which makes the perfect end-of-year or Christmas present.

To buy the calendar, contact Dianne­ on 031 267 9700 or email calendars@compass.za.net
