Benefits of Working Cats
Adding working cats to properties provides property owners with a natural form of pest control, add happiness to the property, can become a great friend and best of all, save the life of a shelter cat!
PCAS recommends that all working cats be provided a food and water source. New cats should be confined to a smaller, secure area on their new property for a minimum of 2 weeks. During this time, they should be provided adequate food, water, a litter box and a private area to hide if they so choose.
Keeping new working cats in a secure area helps ensure a smoother transition to their new home and establishes their caregiver as their new provider. This helps to keep the cats from roaming off the property and finding a new place on their own!
