The Program

“Non-Toxic Pest Control”

The Barn Cats works through rescue groups and individuals who trap feral cats and maintain feral colonies. The cats are all spay/neutered and eventually placed at pre-approved barn sites. Once the cats are accepted into the Barn Cats program, they become the responsibility of Barn Cats to find a safe, secure location for them to live our their lives. These are the “forgotten” cats in our society. Barn Cats gives them a second chance to have a happy life.

Cats are placed in cages at the barn site for an adjustment period of two weeks to one month. While caged, they become familiar with the sights, sounds, and smells of their new environment.

Cats are territorial creatures. They will usually maintain a home base once their scent has been established, a continuous food source is provided, and they feel safe. A group of three cats placed in on a farm south of Dallas, travels to three neighboring barns but always returns to their home barn for food and relaxation.

Supporting a barn cat is the safest way to control the rodent population in your barn. There are no poisons for children and pets to get into and no need to set nasty traps.

You should immediately begin to see less critters and their dropping in your barn or stable. Often the cats will even “pull in” the rats and mice into their cages during the relocation period.
