We are having the typical spring mouse invasion at our barn. I think I am going to head to our local kill shelter tomorrow to pick out our first barn cat. I want to give a cat a good home that needs one! Has anyone ever done this before? I am mainly worried about it leaving... I am sure that I will get super attached to it, like I do with all of my animals. I spoke to a lady from the shelter who suggested that we get a semi-feral cat. She said they would adapt well to barn kitty life, and that they also don't get adopted as often. She thought that after a week of living in our tack/feed room, that it would take our place as its new home.
Has anyone else ever adopted a barn cat?
