I've moved house and we're planning on using a section of the old back barn as a stable or two. It is safe as in its not going to fall down anytime soon but I'm pretty sure there's mice and rats galore.
I was thinking of getting a few kittens(barn probably won't be ready until they're a good age anyway) or possibly a semi-feral cat(loads needing homes here)
My question is, will any cat hunt?
Do cats actually "work"? I've seen a pet cat take down a magpie and kill it and that's the sort of born killer I'm after lol not really I just want something to keep the mice at bay.
What about rats? A mouse running by me I can cope with but a RAT!
Will you get a good "yard" cat from a docile "pet" cat or would I have to find a kitten from a yard cat?
I hope I don't sound too stupid lol, I've never owned a cat before and have no idea how they work as regards to hunting etc just general care.
