It’s a Good Time for a Barn Cat

October 20, 2023

It’s getting to be that time of year, when the rodent population looks for warmer quarters and often times it’s a place you don’t necessarily want them. That’s when Barn Cats can really be your friends. The safest way to control the rodent population on your property or in a storage area is with these cats. No poisons for children and pets to get into, and no need to set traps. Plus, you’ll be giving them a much-needed home!

As luck would have it, Kitsap Humane is currently flush with Barn Cats and you could take them home today! Our Barn Cat program is designed to find community cats safe outdoor homes where they can benefit their caretakers. We place Barn Cats with appropriate adopters on a first-come/first-served basis at our Adoption Center, Wednesday through Monday – and all cats are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped before heading home with you.

What do you need to do?

  • Provide a secure enclosure to keep them confined for a period of time before letting them outside.
  • Provide a litter box, food and water, and hiding spaces. If possible bring a photo of your set-up when you come to adopt.
  • Bring two hard-sided carriers to transport the cats (yes, two – we don’t want them to get lonely!)

Our adoption professionals will be able to coach you on appropriate care and find the perfect cats for your situation!
