When we moved here in June, we took a trip to the Stafford County Animal Shelter to introduce ourselves and offer assistance if needed. They immediately asked if we could take cats. Not the cute kittens or the cuddly ones, the barn/feral cats. They had 6 that needed a home commitment or their alternative was euthanasia. We of course committed to the 6 cats and awaited the email that they were ready (shots, spay/neutered). On July 28 we picked up the first three cats and picked up the remaining three on Augus 7.
These cats are not interested in human contact. They will stay in the barn for a few weeks then be released to roam the farm and live their lives in peace with an endless food supply.
Thanks for helping us chose names! The cats' new names are Godiva, Babybel, Mandarin, Candy, Nougat, and Jellybean.
More cats! We took in another 4 feral cats from Stafford in February, 2022. Pictures (if we can get any good ones) and names to come.
