Supercats are pet or farm cats that have been micro-chipped, neutered and have up-to-date vaccinations.

Half a million people in Scotland own a cat and there are 100,000 stray and feral cats too but fewer than 300 Scottish wildcats. Our native cat is on the edge of extinction but cat owners can take action to help.

Domestic cats (pet, stray or feral) and wildcats can all share disease and breed with each other. Scottish Wildcat Action believes that neutering, vaccinating and micro-chipping domestic cats is the best way to protect wildcats from further decline but it also helps pet cats to be healthier and safer.

Scottish Wildcat Action wants people in Scotland to take action to neuter, vaccinate and microchip their pet and farm cats to prevent diseases like Feline Leukaemia (FeLV) and Feline Aids (FIV) from spreading and to stop cats getting lost or having unwanted kittens.

Make sure pet cats are neutered at 4 months or they will mate with even their own parents. Find a vet at… twitter.com/i/web/status/8…
