The Wisconsin Humane Society has around 25 barn cats who need new homes. If you think your barn(s) could be a furever home for a barn cat, this post is for you.

Here’s the notice from WHS:

Looking for a barn cat? The Wisconsin Humane Society has more than 25 looking for homes right now! If you have a barn or stable, you can save a cat and control your rodent population at the same time! Sometimes cats cannot live as household companions, yet make excellent barn cats and thrive in that environment. These cats may be  fearful of people and prefer the company of other cats and animals. Generally speaking, barn cats placed through the WHS barn cat program are independent cats who prefer to limit their interactions with humans. However, the degree to which they keep their distance varies from cat to cat and may change over time. Barn cats often develop strong bonds with other cats, which is why WHS recommends that at least two cats be placed together. If you are interested in adopting barn cats, please email us at barncats@wihumane.org! (Note: This picture is of Alice, a Wisconsin working cat, who already has a home.)
