If you are feeding feral cats you are not doing them a favor if you are not getting them medically checked and fixed. Normally, feral cats stay away from people. They hide from people and prefer to have no contact at all. When feral cats do come into contact with humans the problems usually turn out to be minor. The only complaints we get about feral cats are usually that they’re on people’s property or on their lawns or using people’s flowerbeds as a litter box. We never heard of a feral cat attacking a human. In order to keep it that way fixing feral cats is the most humane thing that could be done. It cuts down on aggression, helps them health-wise, and spaying and neutering is absolutely the key to controlling the feral cat population.
If you see that one of the cat's ears are notched or tipped off, you will know right away that the cat has been spayed or neutered and vaccinated for rabits.
Feral cats do have some advantages; they are really useful community citizens who help deal with rats, rodents, and snakes.
