A cat rescue organization has a message for cat owners: stop dumping your unwanted cats on farmers. Hundreds of cats are being left outside barns and laneways and for most of them, it's a death sentence. The folks who are doing this think they're giving their cat a nice country life to live in a barn and catch mice.
But house cats and barn cats don't mix. And farmers simply don't want them.
In a tiny run down barn near Kemptville, fresh paw prints are visible everywhere. The barn was home a few weeks ago to dozens of cats, many of them former house cats dumped there by owners who no longer wanted them. Their solution now became this farmer's problem.http://www.iheartradio.ca/580-cfra/news/cat-rescue-group-says-hundreds-of-house-cats-being-dumped-on-farmers-1.3686336
