Research is underway in Shropshire for people to adopt farm cats

Summer is a three-year-old tabby and white cat who is looking for an outdoor rural home.

Farm cats need less human interaction than a typical house cat, but still need someone to watch over them.

The RSPCA hopes to educate the public that not all felines are happy being a cat on their lap in hopes of finding outdoor homes for these pets much faster.

Prospective owners don’t necessarily need to have a farm or equestrian center to house a cat that loves the great outdoors.

The charity is looking for homes of all different types to match the variety of different cats.

Taking in a farm cat gives them a second chance at the type of home where they can live their best life.

All cats will be healthy, neutered, microchipped, vaccinated where appropriate and treated for fleas and worms.

Black cat Nigel was roughing it in Tamworth, Staffordshire, for a few months and being kindly fed by a member of the public. Sadly he suffered neck and facial injuries and was taken to the vet before the RSPCA was contacted. After waiting in a private boarding house due to animal centers in the area being completely full, he is now in the care of the RSPCA Macclesfield, South East Cheshire and Buxton Branch and is looking to find his forever home.

The minimum requirement for an adopter will be to provide weatherproof shelter, food and water at least daily and to monitor the health of the cat and seek veterinary assistance in the event of any need.

They will also need access to land to roam and vegetation such as woods, fields or gardens.

As well as hoping to find homes for the cats in their current care, many RSPCA branches and centers aim to build up a roster of potential adopters so that when these cats come into their care, they can quickly rehome them. without the stress of being confined. a cattery.

To register your interest in becoming a farm cat adopter, contact your nearest center or branch.
