Farm and stable cats

Animals in Distress is appealing to landowners, farmers, stables, garden centres, and rural homes with outbuildings to come forward to help provide a safe home for cats that wouldn’t be able to cope in a traditional pet home.

Cats that are not well socialised to people often come to the centre; however, they are so used to fending for themselves that they’re not well suited to living a traditional pet’s life.

Rural homes, including farms and stables, can make a great alternative as they provide the space the cats need to roam, hunt, and exhibit their natural behaviour. It also gives them the choice and control over how they live their lives in a safe environment.
