    Sweet Carrie had a rough start to life. She came from Browning and is extremely under socialized. She is looking for her forever home. Carrie's least favorite thing is to ride in the car. She's lived successfully with small dogs and thought respectful children were okay. Carrie's reserved when first meeting new people. Being from Browning she tends to wander so a fenced yard is a must. She is a little over weight and would benefit from walks. Carrie isn't fond of cats and thinks birds of all sizes are for eating.

    Hello, my name is Bob. I am a senior gentleman looking for my perfect retirement home. I am quiet and respectful, and I ask that my forever home be as well. I am shy until I get to know you, so please be patient with me as I take my time falling in love with you. I have been around other cats as well as gentle dogs, and would be ok with cat-savvy older children. Please call my caregivers to set up an appointment to meet me. I can't wait to meet you!

    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.
