has been my dream to trap the cats that have been abandoned to
the woods by my home. I would like to socialize
them and adopt them into forever homes.
plan is simple, my
would be open to accepting all feral cats that had been previously
vaccinated, and sterilized, excluding cats infected with felineimmunodeficiency virus. The feral cats then would stay on the
property and become barn cats.
has been my dream for a long time, but
I thought it was only a dream. I
never thought it would come true, BUT
has agreed that if this is what I want then we can move in the summer
to a farm and I can have a cat rescue.
look and collect ideas as to what I want. In the past month I did
look at 2 hobby farms but both were too small for what I wanted, plus
they backed up a busy crossroad and I desired a remote location.
Remote being better for barn cats as there were be less worry of them
attempting to cross a busy road to get to the other side.
of the hobby farms that I looked at had old dilapidated
which meant that we would have to go to the expense of building a
shelter for the cats. It is one thing to remodel a barn, but to
build from ground up is a great expense. In addition the land was
rocky and there was not area suitable for garden. Neither
of the farm houses were to my liking, in my opinion they both should
have been demolished and taken away.
my search for a farm to be converted into a cat rescue continues. I
do think there is a need for the feral and stray cats and do plan to
trap the cats at the colony that I oversee before construction;
and blasting of
south ridge commences for urban development.
