feral cat colonies
Companies, Restaurants, Tourism and Government facilities such as military bases, hostels and state hospitals across Namibia have embraced feral working cat groups to maintain clean environments. These cats not only control rats, mice, and snakes but also positively impact employees, fostering loyalty and reducing stress and in return, the company provides them a safe place to stay, food and fresh water.
According to researchers: "Pets can create camaraderie within the workplace and trigger interactions that may not have happened without them. Better communication leads to more trust, a key component in a successful work environment. Trust and communication rival stress and promote productivity, causing improved morale and reduced absenteeism."
But the cats' numbers need to be controlled humanely through Trap-Neuter-Release! Have a Heart supports companies that welcome feral working cat groups at their property with free spay or neuter services.
