MetroWest Humane Society has a Barn Cat Program to find barn or monitored outside placements for cats who are not looking for the cushy indoor homes we traditionally hope to provide. These cats generally get along well with other cats and animals, but frequently are not looking for (nor do they particularly want) human companionship. We believe these cats deserve a chance to have the life they prefer. They have had a general medical check-up, have been spayed or neutered, and are now up to date on all of their shots. For more information on the MetroWest Humane Society Barn Cat Program, please see our website for details.... http://www.webpaws.com/mwhs/index.html.
We currently (6/10/2009) have the following cats for adoption as barn cats:
White Kitty (first picture) is a lovely Siamese mix female about 4 years old. She and her daughter Funny Face live with a number of other cats in a colony that has to be moved. She is fairly friendly, will take food from your fingers but is not pettable. Funny Face (2nd picture) is a Siamese mix female about 3 years old. She lives in a colony of cats that need to be moved. She is timid. Star (third picture) is currently at the shelter and would love to have a home with people who will let him have a bit of outdoor time in a safe place so he can do the he-man thing, but only for a short time. Being at the shelter indoors all the time feels a bit too wussy for him once in a while. But the rest of the time he's a love bug - very friendly and affectionate. Star is not a real barn cat. He is more of an indoor/outdoor cat with the emphasis on indoor.
