Here are our lovely barn cats for adoption! These cats would thrive in places that require natural rodent control, most often on farms. Barn cats generally do not require human interaction, and they do not suit indoor living.

There also may be more barn cats available that are not listed below.

If you are interested in adopting a barn cat, please fill in our pre-adoption form

but what is a barn cat?

A barn cat, often referred to as a working cat or mouser, is a feline specifically adapted to an outdoor or rural environment, typically finding its home in barns, stables, or agricultural settings.

Renowned for their exceptional hunting skills, barn cats play a vital role in controlling rodent populations on farms. These hardy and independent felines are skilled hunters, efficiently keeping barns and agricultural structures free from mice, rats, and other pests.

Unlike indoor cats, barn cats are accustomed to a more rugged lifestyle, where they roam freely and use their natural instincts to navigate the challenges of outdoor living. While barn cats may not be as inclined to seek human companionship as their indoor counterparts, their presence is invaluable in maintaining a healthy and pest-free environment for livestock, stored grains, and agricultural produce. Providing shelter, food, and periodic veterinary care, barn cats are essential partners in the symbiotic relationship between humans and the rural landscape.
