I didn't read all these in depth.
The closest pound to us is too far away, our vet won't give us a barn cat! IF they are spayed and declawed they only give to inside homes! But my barns are HUGE enclosed predator/dog free!! Congrats!

Make sure you don't feed him too much or else he'll get lazy. But if he likes you he'll bring you presents, mine used to bring me rabbit butts!
I put the new/old kittens litterbox right outside a hole in the barn door. We had an old cat that used to potty IN the barn, YUCK! So the new ones learned to go outside and we never had a problem.

Milo is a doll!!

You can get a lot further with a ladder than you can with crutches!!

A declawed cat would probably not make the best rat killer.
I would think that there are plenty of free cats out there.
People are always giving them away in the Walmart parking lot around here.

I agree, but our barns are fully enclosed and we had a house cat (from hub's previous marriage) that went psycho on my daughter and had to be put out.
She was fully declawed, and she cleaned out the barns!! The first week was mass slaughter and I counted over 12 one day! LOL! She was 11 when we put her out there and died at the age of 15 from cancer.

The kittens we got were found near my grandparents woods, we kept them in the old dog kennels for a couple weeks to tame them and then let them loose. Poor things had terrible infections that even the vet couldn't cure so we had them PTS. So I'm waiting a few years and have BLEACHED barns making sure they didn't leave anything behind. It was sooooo sad.

Kitties can be serious virus factories. You should be fine after a few months to replace them. Poor kitties and poor you. It is so sad to have sick pets.
