Someone has come up with an interesting way to deal with feral (wild) cats.
There's a small ad or article- probably more of a public service announcement- in the Eureka Reporter this morning. I can't find it online. It's titled Barn Cats Available.
It goes on to say that these folks have a number of cats available for adoption. They were all wild cats that were captured, neutered and vaccinated. Now they're asking for people with barns or other outbuildings to adopt the cats and let them live in the outdoor home you provide.
Interesting idea, and could become a useful one for people that have problems with rodents. All they ask of adopters is that the cats have shelter, food and any medical needs are met.
About the only downside is cats, especially younger ones, do tend to kill birds.
Still, not a bad idea. I wish them luck. If interested in getting a barn cat, call (707) 444-2079.
