Have you had a working cat before?
What are you looking for in a Working Cat Hero?
Initially Working Cat Heroes need to be securely confined in a space in their working area for up to three weeks. Are you prepared to allow that much time for them to settle in?
How will you keep them in this confined space?
Would you need to borrow a large crate from CCHS for this purpose?
Describe the property where the cat will be set up
Farm with barn or out building
Residential home with garage or shed
If you chose other, please describe
Where and when can the cats roam once they have become acclimated to their new home?
Will there be children around?
Do you have other animals?
If yes, what kind of animals?
If you have dogs that roam free, are they good with cats?
Is your home or business located near a road?
If you chose yes, how would you describe the traffic?
Have you lost a working cat to a predator?
If you chose yes, how often has this happened?
Working cats need to have a clean and dry place to live. What provisions will you make to protect them from resident pets, predators, and weather?
Are you willing to provide fresh cat food and water every day for your working cats?
Are you willing to provide vet care for your working cats when needed?
Do you have someone to provide care for your working cats when you are away?
If you were to move from this property, what would you plan be for the working cats?
We find that it is beneficial to working cats if they are adopted in pairs or even a larger number. Having a buddy can keep cats from wandering off in search of other cats. How many cats are you interested in?
Have you adopted from CCHS before?
