Relocations as last resort

Relocations are the very last resort for feral cats. We do our best to keep cats in their familiar neighborhood, but periodically we encounter unfortunate situations that require moving cats to a barn or alternate setting.

We select the best fit for the cats by speaking with barn owners and reviewing pictures — a process that can take several weeks. After recovering from spay/neuter, the cats are moved. To ensure a successful transition, we follow a strict standard protocol, including a confinement period of four weeks. During this time, the cats acclimate to the sights, sounds, smells, and feeding schedule of their new home. They do this in our large cages which include hiding huts, toys, scratching posts, litter, food, and water. Daily canned food is the key to convincing the cats that this new setting, with acres of pasture to explore and barn nooks and crannies to hide in, is a great place to STAY upon release. These lucky kitties are enjoying their new digs thanks to the generosity of some local (and some not-so-local) barn owners. We wish them the best in their new home.
