House a mouser-we have the cats for you!



For centuries there has been a mutually beneficial partnership between cats and farmers, stable owners and smallholders. Feral or semi-feral cats are ideal mousers, keeping vermin levels down on working properties using the exceptional hunting skills that have enabled them to thrive as wild animals. 

A cat's hunting instinct is not triggered by hunger and a well-provided for feral is likely to be more patient and hunt more effectively than a hungry one. 

We currently have a selection of cats just waiting for a 'job vacancy' to become available for them. They are residing in our new feral pen and garden enclosure that was built last year. These cats have come to us from a variety of backgrounds but have shown that they are not suitable to become domesticated cats.

They could be providing you with an environmentally friendly rodent control service if you are willing and able to give them the basic needs of shelter and food.
