What is a working cat?
Working cats, also called barn cats, are a special kind of companion.
These feline experts are not your typical lap cats – they're professionals on a mission. Unlike traditional house cats, our Working Cats may be less socialized, more aloof, or may just struggle with indoor living making them the ideal candidates for outdoor environments. At NHS we believe every cat has a purpose and deserves a chance, and our working cat program allows just that for cats that would not otherwise be adoption candidates. These cats thrive in the great outdoors and are content with the freedom to patrol and protect their territory.
Our working cats are up to date on vaccinations, ensuring they are in peak health for their important role in pest control. They are also spayed or neutered to prevent unwanted litters and ear tipped for easy identification. Harnessing their innate hunting instincts, these feline warriors will patrol your space, keeping it vermin-free. Working cats enjoy living in warehouses, barns, vineyards, workshops, and other locations where they are free to do as they please while they work for you.
What is an ear tip?
Each cat is easily identifiable by a small, painless "ear tip” on their left ear. This quick and humane procedure ensures they are recognized as altered and part of a managed colony or working cat program.
