I found an adult cat, now what?

If you have discovered an adult cat that has suddenly appeared at your home or business, we suggest that you leave it alone. You can give it water, but please do not feed the cat. 66% of all lost cats will find their way home if left alone. Only about 2% of cats find their way back to their owners from local shelters.  If the cat is injured or sick, then do not hesitate to bring the lost cat into the shelter. If you decide to feed the cat or bring them into your home, put up posters and ask neighbors because more often than not, they belong to someone around you. If you have found an adult cat please read Community Cat, Be Part of the Solution.
