This class on how to properly bottle-feed kittens was organized by Lodi Animal services. This is information may be very helpful when we come across a mama cat unable to nurse her kittens or if the kittens were abandoned.

I am so proud of Lodi Animal Services which took the time to help educate and network with other non-profits volunteers and cat-lovers who share the same passion for rescuing and helping cats in our area.

There are two types of cats that SOKS puts up for adoptions on our Adopt-A-Pet page: strays and young feral kittens.

Stray Cats

While tending to feral cat colonies, sometimes our volunteers come across friendly homeless cats. These are strays. They are not afraid of people like feral cats are. A stray will rub against your legs, might enjoy being petted although might not like to be lifted up.

At the same time, feral cats do not want to get close to a human. They are very skittish, very sensitive to sounds and movements. They are not trusting and definitely not friendly.

Feral Kittens

Differently from feral adults, feral kittens can be tamed, and they learn to trust humans very quickly. And so, when we trap kittens during our TNR events, we foster them and put to adoption. This way we don't allow feral colonies to grow. We believe this is the way to go about controlling feral cat populations.

All cats put up for adoption by SOKS are spayed or neutered, vaccinated and dewormed, chipped and ready for new homes.

Visit our adoption page and learn more about cats and kittens looking for a new home.

We are letting the city council know how important TNR is and that funding should be available to assist with controlling the population of feral cats/kitties in our Stockton communities.

Please watch our video discussing the importance of TNR.
