Wild Cats Need New Life on the Ranch

February 11th, 2013 by Keith Hutchinson

The City of Georgetown Animal Shelter is looking for good homes for some semi-wild cats. They are not really suited to indoor living, but can earn their keep and be perfectly happy as barn cats.

BarnCat1-400Jackie Carey, animal services manager, says 19 cats were recently taken from a home in Georgetown. “They’re pretty cats. They’re seal point and lynx point,” says Carey.

Each cat is spayed or neutered and given their rabies vaccination. There is no adoption fee.

To introduce a semi-feral cat to your property, keep them in a barn, garage, or laundry room for a couple of weeks until they realize that the new place is a safe home. Even though these cats are skittish around people, they do still need regular food and water.

For more information about a barn cat for your property, contact the Georgetown Animal Shelter at (512) 930-3592 or animalsvc@georgetown.org. The City of Georgetown Animal Shelter is located at 110 W.L. Walden Drive next to the McMaster Athletic Complex. The shelter website is pets.georgetown.org.
