The RSPCA has launched a new rehoming campaign to help find alternative homes for ‘farm cats’ that prefer the great outdoors.
The project aims to find homes for farm cats and other nervous felines who need less human interaction than a typical domestic pet. The aim of the project is to educate the public that not every feline is happy to be a lap cat and to find outdoorsy homes for these cats much more quickly.
Farm cats are often nervous around people but still need someone to provide food, water, shelter and veterinary care when needed. As the name suggests, they would most likely be best suited to a farm, smallholding, or riding stables but some have even found quirky homes such as a model village, an orchard and a gazebo company.
