Feral Cats: Debunking the Myths and Understanding the Risks
Presented by Nellie Goetz, D.V.M., M.P.H., Clinical Assistant Professor, Shelter Medicine
Midwestern University College of Veterinary Medicine

Reactions to stray animals, such as feral cats in an alley, can vary from compassion to fear of communicable diseases. But how big of a risk do feral cats pose to the public? Listen in as Dr. Goetz separates fact from fiction about feral cats, explaining what zoonotic diseases they may carry and what resources there are for managing feral cat colonies in the Phoenix area. She will also review literature concerning feral cats and public health.
