Save A Life: Gain A Rodent Ridder

The non-profit organization Love Your Feral Felines encourages barn owners and stable managers to consider adopting a cat through its Barn Cat Placement Program.

“We are looking for cat lovers who have a barn or other secure outdoor structure and are interested in adopting cats that are not suitable for life inside of a house or are unhappy living inside,” explains Brianne Youngberg, a volunteer for the program in San Diego County’s Vista.

“Cat temperaments range from feral to friendly. This program is designed to find homes for cats that have traditionally been deemed un-adoptable through local shelters adoption procedures.

“Barn cats benefit their caretakers!” she continues. “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. They will help keep rodents away from grain and food storage areas, and you’ll enjoy watching the cats as well as have the satisfaction of giving them a much-needed home!

“Consider adopting a barn cat. We will assist you while the cats settle into their new home,” Brianne concludes. She adds that the need is especially strong this time of year because shelters are inundated with fresh crops of kittens, so there’s less room for feral cats. Love Your Feral Felines is also in regular need of volunteers to help transport cats from the shelters to their new barns.
