What Are Community Cats?
All communities have community cats—they live wherever people live.
"Community cat" is an umbrella term that refers to any outdoor, unowned, free-roaming cat.
Community cats belong to the communities in which they live.
Feline Reproduction Facts
Cats are a very successful species, in part due to their efficient and prolific reproduction cycle.
Female cats are “seasonally polyestrous,” which means they have multiple heat cycles during the breeding season.
As the amount of daylight begins to increase after the winter solstice on Dec. 21st, the reproductive cycle of intact females kicks into gear, and most will go into heat by late January.
A female cat will keep coming back into heat every 1 to 2 weeks until she gets pregnant or the amount of daylight declines in October.
The feline gestation period is about 63 days, so the first kittens of the season start arriving in late March.
