The ultimate predator- Feral cats are carnivores and can survive with limited access to water, as they use moisture from their prey. They generally eat small mammals, but also catch birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish and insects - taking prey up to the size of a brush-tail possum.
In pastoral regions, they feed largely on young rabbits, but in other areas feral cats prey mainly on native animals, with the latter more prevalent in today’s environment with rabbit numbers severely reduced. About 80 endangered and threatened species are at risk from feral cat predation in Australia according to Australia’s Environment Protection & Biodiversity Conservation Act.
There is an estimation of upwards of 6 million feral cats in Australia!
Feral Fix Pest Control has several control methods available for feral cat management.
