Semi-Wild Cats Are Ready for Farm Life

BarnCat1-400Several semi-wild cats at the City of Georgetown Animal Shelter are still looking for a ticket to their next chapter as a barn or ranch cat. These cats are not fully acclimated to life indoors as a house pet, but can still have a good life and earn their keep on a farm or ranch.

There are currently eight semi-wild cats at the shelter that need homes in a barn or outbuilding says Jackie Carey, animal services manager.

Each cat is spayed or neutered and given their rabies vaccination. There is no adoption fee.

To introduce a semi-feral cat to your property, keep it in a barn, outbuilding, garage, or laundry room for a few weeks until the cat realizes that the new place is a safe home. Even though these cats are skittish around people, they do still need regular food and water.

For more information about a barn cat for your property, contact the Georgetown Animal Shelter at (512) 930-3592 or animalsvc@georgetown.org. The City of Georgetown Animal Shelter is located at 110 W.L. Walden Drive next to the McMaster Athletic Complex. The shelter website is pets.georgetown.org.
