Disneyland’s attitude towards feral cats at their Anaheim, California theme park attraction is the gold standard for how businesses should treat feral cats. And I hope that when directors of companies are discussing those pesky feral cats which are a ‘nuisance’ on their properties, that they turn their minds to Disneyland and study what they do. Disneyland has not taken the conventional stance and rejected the feral cat in the belief that customers dislike them because they are fearful of catching a disease from them. They’ve embraced their presence.
In general, Disney customers actually like the feral cats. That’s if you can see them because they operate mainly at night. Sometimes customers do have the opportunity to spot a Disneyland cat and they often interact with them with pleasure. A typical case in point is the tweet by Seth Kubersky. He said: “Nutmeg the cat, my favourite attraction at DCA!”

It kind of sums up how feral cats enhance the Disneyland theme park. Not only do they keep down the rodent population, they are an added attraction to paying customers. Nutmeg is a bit of a favourite and I can see why because he’s incredibly handsome with his thick, lustrous orange tabby coat. He is built for the outside world but there’s plenty of hiding places in the park as you can see in the photograph. He looks very healthy.
Nutmeg is part of the hidden colony of feral cats that hunts rats at the Anaheim theme parks. Disneyland provides a full package of services including: medical care, neutering and spaying and feeding stations for the feral cats. They believe that the cats provide an invaluable service.
Nutmeg likes to hang out at the Magic Key Terrace, which is why they have created a drink named after him. The Nutmeg cocktail is made from Myer’s dark rum, Bailey’s Irish Cream, Frangelico hazelnut liqueur and apricot liqueur. It is described as a desert drink on the Disney Food Blog. And if you love Disneyland’s feral cats you will love this drink. You can celebrate the presence of Nutmeg and all Disneyland’s working cats.
