Is this your cat?

Scottish Wildcat Action has been using trail cameras to monitor cats in Strathpeffer. Has your pet cat made our mogshots gallery? If you recognise these furry faces, we'd love to hear from you. This will help us to understand which cats are living wild and need to be taken to the vet for treatment as part of our Trap Neuter Vaccinate Return (TNVR) programme. Contact Keri your local project officer for more information.
