National Feral Cat Day is October 16th, 2021. 

The most prominent feral cat colony on the Outer Banks is on Hatteras Island. With an estimated colony size of over 3,000 cats, this is an active colony of feral cats.

National Feral Cat Day is a day to celebrate the cat in the shadows, wild and free. The compassionate People and organizations that care for the feral cat colonies are celebrated on this day for their kind and empathetic work within the natural environment. 

Friends of Felines - Cape Hatteras Island started organizing feral cat caregivers in 2006. In 2009 Friends of Felines - Cape Hatteras Island obtained 301 (c) 3 non-profit status. Grants and Funding are actively being sought to help control the feral cat colony population.

Friends of Felines - Cape Hatteras Island has an active TRN (Trap Neuter & Release) program. During the Spring, 70 cats were helped and went through the TNR Clinic. There are two large TNR Clinics held annually by Friends of Felines - Cape Hatteras Island, one in the Spring and one in the Fall.

On October 11th, 2021, 15 cats went through the clinic. On October 12th, there are 13 cats scheduled. The Fall TNR clinic is active. Volunteers are actively giving their time to make this clinic possible.
