Feral Cats make ideal residents for stables, farms or barns.
From time to time, ICAN is in need of safe havens for healthy, spayed and neutered feral (wild) cats. The ideal home for these cats would be on a farm, ranch, stable or other outdoor environment with adequate shelter.
All these cats have been spayed or neutered, and now need an outdoor home where they can live out their lives. Most of these cats are extremely afraid of humans, so require no care other than providing daily food and water, protection from the elements, and veterinary care if required. ICAN will provide humane live traps should it be necessary to transport the animal to the vet.
You will need to be able to keep these cats confined for a week or two before allowing them access to the full property. If released too soon these cats will not stick around, they will attempt to get to more familiar territory. ICAN can provide crates for confinement if necessary, but being left in a secure room with no way to escape from their new location would be the best scenario.
After a short stay in secure confinement, the cats will accept their new home and be on full pest control duty – their way of saying “thank you” to the rancher, farmer or property owner who is willing to share a little space with them.
Assistance and support will be provided during the relocation process. If you are in need of barn cats, please contact us at (250) 341-7888.
