Meow! My name is Barn Cats
Barn Cats's Info...
|Breed:||Calico||Color:||Calico Or Dilute Calico||Age:||Young|
Nine cat family, all fixed and feral, need a barn or shop to call home. They were roaming a business property and the business did not want them there. They were not fed. These are great cats. There are two adults females, Misty and Haley and the rest are teens. There are brother and sister Tilly and Rogue. Both are tabby on white and Rogue is the only boy of the nine. There are Stiletto and Raindrop, both young muted calicos. Last but not least, are Sassy, a young silver tabby, and Alexi, a young torbi.
To take these cats in as barn cats, one must be willing to contain them for two weeks, keeping their litter boxes clean, babying them somewhat, because this is the "indoctrination" period where you make them understand this is their new home and they will be safe and fed here. They get to know the sights and smells of their new home from the security of confinement. This isn't hard.
Rescue Group Info...
I am a cat trapper and lover of strays. I am an obsessive relentless proponent of spay/neuter. I identify with strays because I am one myself. I began helping ferals after living along the river in Corvallis, homeless myself at times. A colony of feral cats provided me what I couldn't find among humans--acceptance, love and support. They were my family. Now I help them.
I adopt out rescued cats by word of mouth, occasional newspaper ad, my petfinder.com website, this website and with flyers. I am on an extremely low budget and so far, work alone.
I do not take in cats from the general public but rather specialize in rounding up cats who otherwise would not be fixed, to get them fixed, for people who own the cats or who feed stray or feral cats, to humanely reduce populations through TNR. I run across cats and kittens in extreme need, without other options, and this is how I came to doing rescue.
Adoption fee of $30 per cat. All cats are fixed, vaccinated and treated for parasites prior to adoption. Indoor only homes. Adopters also agree to a home visit and check afterwards. I have an adoption contract that I ask be filled out prior to the first visit. I want these wonderful cats who have suffered so, not to suffer or be abandoned again. I look for adopters who respect and cherish life.
