Barn Cats

Cats suited for the outdoors

Cats that have histories and temperaments better suited to an outdoor lifestyle can be successfully placed with caring owners as working cats. These cats may live in a barn, stable or other outdoor setting where they have a “job” and a better quality of life. CVHS will help match potential adopters with a barn cat at a discounted fee to be placed in a safe and comfortable environment.
