Feral Cat Assistance & Trapping

dominion is not abuse or neglect


Do you need help with free roaming cats? Do you want to help them but don’t have the resources and don’t know where to begin? Call FCAT.

Feral Cat Assistance & Trapping (FCAT) is group of dedicated volunteers who trap feral cats, spay or neuter (S/N) them, and then return them to where they were trapped. This is a process called trap, neuter, & return (TNR) and is considered one of the most humane methods to control feral cat population.

FCAT has one mission: to control the population of feral cats through the use of TNR. FCAT traps, neuters, and returns approximately 800 adult cats per year in King, Pierce, Lewis and Grays Harbor Counties.

People who are concerned about feral cats seek out Pamela Staeheli, the organizer of FCAT. A network of volunteers go out to neighborhoods and houses where feral and/or stray cats are gathering.

Once caught they are brought to FCAT’s facility where Pamela feeds and performs minor medical care as necessary. Carriers are labeled with the cats’ locations. Each week dozens of cats are transported to the spay/neuter clinics. After the surgeries and ear tips to identify them as fixed, Pamela keeps them for several days until they have recovered. They are then returned to where they were trapped and released.
