Sleek Cats focuses on colony cat management and kitten/kitteen rehabilitation in one specific industrial area of inner north eastern Perth, WA. This allows us to be strategic and goal oriented, while improving the lives of the often forgotten community cats. These cats have their lineage in the unsterilised pet cats, left to wander by suburban humans. Homes have been found within the concrete and wire fences of business and industry, built after the dust settled on bulldozed, native bushland. But these cats are not feral. They are still reliant on humans, their hangouts and their handouts - and the mice and rats this attracts. But, this is not enough - they need compassion for their plight. These cats are an animal welfare issue.
Our mission is to improve the lives of community cats by reducing their stresses, including hunger, over population, continual pregnancy and mothering by females, fighting and territory maintenance by males and struggles for life by undernourished kittens and depleted mothers. The management of colony cats requires many different tasks - feeding, fostering and rehabilitation of kittens and cats, trapping of cats for sterilisation, transport and holding of cats after surgery, education and communication with the business sector and many, many hours of colony observation and monitoring.
