Mara's Legacy

We adore cats, yet Detroit faces a significant Feral cat challenge. Numerous roam the streets. Felines overwhelm the shelters across Michigan struggling to secure homes, and so, the local animal shelters need our help! Estimated 657,000 feral and stray cats roam Detroit. Read more here.
While cats remain one of the most popular house pets in the United States, they also remain one of the most misunderstood. 
This is the Holy Grail.
This is the most effective way to reduce homeless cat populations in the wild. Now managing multiple Feral cat colonies throughout Metro-Detroit, we can tackle this epidemic. There is an estimated 480 million feral cats in the World! That's a huge number. Yes, feral cats can cause harm to our ecosystems, but when well-managed, not only will they stop reproducing but they will also be well-fed by human caretakers. That is a win-win! If we catch these guys and monitor their lifestyles, we can effectively keep wild cat numbers down in America and keep these cats out of the shelters! Have you seen how clumsy your lap cat at home is? These guys, unless born in the wild, simply do not do well under pressure. Wild and feral cats aren't as ferocious as you would assume them to be. It is estimated that Raccoons kill more waterfowl on average per year. Raccoons are typically not predatory towards cats. They are mostly scavengers and will eat fruits, nuts, insects, small mammals, and birds. However, if a raccoon feels threatened, it may act aggressively to protect itself if a cat gets too close or if its food source is at risk. Source: PetShun

Mara was a Charcoal Marbled Bengal Cat. She passed away at nearly 11 years old. Her and her brother were abandoned at the Michigan Humane Society due to over breeding. A Bengal Cat breeder couldn't place her and her brother, so she wound up in the shelter where we had adopted her. Mara was love.
Two Feral Cat Colonies in Metro-Detroit pictured below
It might not look like much at first glance because we want to keep our work discreet to keep the cats safe, but behind these trees is an entire cat colony! Located in Metro-Detroit, this is one of the best TNR operations we've worked with to date! For over 8 years, what we call 'Kitty City,' has effectively managed the population of feral cats in the area! Our furry residents are all Neutered and we keep them fed! We have volunteers donate hours and we built shelters for the cats to live in. Very rarely do we ever see these cats actually hunt! They just don't care to, so long as we keep feeding them. What was once a colony of 40+ cats are now a smaller colony. We studied this group for a long time, and we make sure that they are cared for, so they don't cause any trouble. TNR works.
When you choose to buy our merchandise, you can trust that we dedicate our lives to the animals that we represent! Help us safely manage this colony and others like it by purchasing our merchandise. Mara's Paw Print is our new logo!
