A well established feral cat colony

Located in the southern Appalachian Mountains of north Georgia, the Payne Colony Cats live in a real feral cat colony. With around 28 cats, the colony has been established for at least sixty years and is one of the oldest colonies in the southeast United States.

Located on a small family farm, the Payne cats have comfortable shelters in the hay barns, a fast-running creek with clean water, and plenty to eat. They are blessed with with hundred of acres for hunting, plus a good home. They also have many exciting stories to tell.

Many feral cats in other locations are mistreated, homeless, and starving. If you want to learn about feral cats and how to help them, then read my post What is a Feral Cat Colony? It answers a lot of questions and provides a list of the best resources.
