Community cats, also known as feral cats, are unsocialized cats who were born outside without a lot of human contact. While these kitties do not want to curl up on your lap, they still love life and want a place to call home. Once in an animal shelter, most feral cats are put down, because they would not make good house pets. However, they can be altered, vaccinated against rabies, and returned to the outdoors, therefore saving their lives!
