    Relaxed Percival goes by “Percy” or “King of the Castle” around here. His favorite place is a patch of sunlight to bask in.  He enjoys hanging out in our outdoor cat yard when it’s warm enough, but he sure would love a home and yard to roam. Once in a while, he gets in a playful mood with our volunteers. Being on the quiet side, he tends to get overlooked, which is probably why he has been here since last May. He’s a cool 4 year old dude who is litterbox trained and very clean. He is neutered, fully vaccinated, and microchipped, too.

    Hi!  I'm Flash.  I'm a laid back, mellow senior gentleman who enjoys attention and loves being petted.  I'm good with other cats and have lived with kids of all ages, but I'm not into dogs.  I'm looking for an indoor only home, and I can be timid in new environments so please be patient while I settle in.  Folks here at the shelter say I need to slim down a lot, so I'd appreciate your help with that.  I enjoy a nice brushing now and then, and I don’t mind being bathed.  If you're looking for a sweet, super-chill boy to keep you company, I'm your guy!

    City Cats seeking Country Life

      Got Mice? We can Help!

    Our Barn Cat Program is designed

    to match highly trained mousers

    with welcoming barns, shops, or other

    safe environments. Qualifying barn

    cats are altered, vaccinated, and micro-

    chipped, and they prefer living and

    working outdoors to living an

    inside life.

    Farm Life is the Life for Me!

    If you have a barn, stable, warehouse, shop, nursery, etc. then you can help save a cat!

    While the majority of cats can easily live as indoor house pets, sometimes we have cats who prefer to live as a working cat.  Cats in our Working Cat Program, also known as our Barn Cat Program, fall into one of these categories:

    • Under-socialized cats who prefer the company of other cats/animals over people.

    • Feisty cats who are on a mission to hunt and when kept as indoor cats tend to bite or scratch.

    • Cats whose litter box habits make them unable to live in the house successfully.

    • Cats who were outdoor cats prior to surrender and cannot acclimate to an indoor home.

     

    Please note that we do not adopt indoor house cats who are suitable to being household companions into barns, warehouses, etc.

    Adopting a working cat can help you control a rodent population while providing companionship for your barn animals.

    What we provide
    When you adopt a cat through our Working Cat Program, the cat will be:

    • Spayed or neutered

    • Up-to-date on vaccinations and testing for common feline diseases

    • Micro-chipped (a form of permanent identification)

    We will review guidelines to help you acclimate your cat to your environment in a safe manner.

    What you provide

    • Shelter in a warehouse, barn, outbuilding, or stable, away from high traffic streets

    • Daily food and water

    • Long-term veterinary care, as needed

    • A secure dedicated space to allow for the cat’s acclimation to its new environment.  This can be a tack room or an indoor enclosure that they cannot escape from.  In some cases we may be able to lend you a crate or cage for the introductory period.

     

    Things to consider
    Adopting a cat through FCAS can help save the life of a cat who may not have other options.  However, the care of a working cat is still an important responsibility.  You will be assuming care for the cat for its lifetime, which may be as much as 15 or 20 years.   In exchange for providing the essentials of food & water, medical care, and shelter, your working cat will earn its keep by helping to control the rodent population in your building.
