Cats that need you the most
Faithful to Feline is one of the few places that has an entirely separate room to take in and care for FIV-positive cats. Many cats with FIV live long and healthy lives.
According to Cornell University, Veterinary school of Medicine, “The primary mode of transmission for FIV is through bite wounds from an infected cat. Casual, non-aggressive contact, such as sharing water bowls or mutual grooming, does not appear to be an efficient route of spreading the virus. As a result, cats in households with stable social structures where housemates do not fight are at little risk of acquiring FIV infections. Only on rare occasions, an infected mother cat may transmit the infection to her kittens. However, if the mother becomes infected with FIV during her pregnancy, the transmission risk to the kittens is increased. Sexual contact is not a significant means of spreading FIV among cats.” (Cornell University, 2021).

ARE YOU A CAT LOVER WHO HAS A BARN, STABLE, WAREHOUSE, OR OTHER SECURE OUTDOOR STRUCTURE?**
**PLEASE NOTE: Due to the nature of the program, we may not have suitable cats available immediately but will try to fill your request as soon as possible. We maintain a waiting list as the number of cats available for the Barn Cat Program will fluctuate.
F2F Barn Cat Program
Sometimes we have cats who cannot live as house cats. This program is designed to find homes for cats that have traditionally been deemed un-adoptable through our typical adoption process. Cats in our Barn Cat Program have temperaments that range from feral to friendly and usually fall into one of three categories:
Cats whose litterbox habits make them unsuitable to live in a traditional home
Cats and kittens who are feral or semi-feral, and who are too old to be socialized
Cats who need the stimulation of an outdoor environment and do not do well inside
We refer to these cats as “barn cats” because that is the most common housing option. However, there are many types of buildings that could provide a safe, happy home for one of these special cats. Perhaps you own a warehouse, a workshop, or a garage – as long as the cat(s) will be cared for and will have appropriate shelter, we are willing to consider creative locations!
It is important to note that we do not adopt cats who are suitable to be household companions to barns, only those cats without other options.
WHAT YOU NEED:
When you adopt a barn cat, you agree to give them:
Shelter in a barn, outbuilding, stable, or other suitable shelter to protect them from preparators or harsh weather
Daily food and water – cats cannot live on mousing alone!
Veterinary care, as needed
A secure place to keep them for the first 2-4 weeks while they acclimate to your space. This should be a secure indoor enclosure from which they cannot escape. We can lend you an introduction cage if no secure area is available.
WHAT WE PROVIDE:
All barn cats available for adoption are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, have received initial deworming and flea/tick preventative, and are microchipped and ear-tipped (for permanent identification purposes). When you adopt a barn cat, we will go over with you how to acclimate your new cat to its new surroundings and make them feel at home.
While there is no set adoption fee for barn cats, we kindly request a donation to help offset the cost of their medical care.
If you have any questions about the program, feel free to email us.
