OnFocus – For the cat that isn’t quite into humans, Marshfield Area Pet Shelter (MAPS) has a special “Working Cat” adoption program that gives it a second chance to find a home.
Currently, MAPS has four hard-working mousers in need of employment. Cats that qualify for the program are placed into outdoor locations like barns, sheds, and heated garages. These cats are those which are afraid of people, dislike human contact, prefer to spend time with cats, or are used to being outdoors and cannot adjust to life indoors.
There are a few simple needs for an outdoor cat. They will need a barn, workshop, or other outdoor building that has indoor/outdoor access, and a daily supply of dry cat food and fresh water. During the first two weeks, the cat must be confined to the building with food, water, and a litter box in order to get it accustomed to its new home and to prevent it from running away. Owners should keep an eye on the cat and monitor its well-being.
