BARN CAT PROGRAM

Some of the cats we rescue at CATNIP are a little wary of humans, but can still be a productive member of a family, however, by taking on the job of "Barn Cat." This program pairs suitable cats with families or farms that need a superstar mouser to live outdoors on their property. Barn Cats are adopted in groups of two or three to aid acclimation.
