About Our Working Cats
Operation Hood is looking for homes specifically for “Working Cats.”The cats have already been neutered or spayed and have received all
required vaccinations. They make great working cats because they are tireless and enthusiastic hunters of unwanted vermin and they typically do a far better job than exterminators and poisons. Studies have even shown that the smell of a cat in an enclosed area will keep the mice away.
We have working cats who ready for adoption but in return we require an introductory phase allowing the cats to adjust to there new homes of at least 2 to 3 weeks where they are crated or contained to a specific area and are protected from outside elements, fed and given water daily and provided a litter box. We suggest the use of pine pellet litter so when the box is needing to be dumped the used litter may be spread around the area where you expect the cat to reside and work. Once the cats are released in the allotted time they are prone to remain on site and report to work! We also ask the following to be provided once the cats are released:
• A barn, stable, or outdoor building shelter where the cat(s) can live;
• Daily food and water for the cat(s); and
• Veterinary care such as annual vaccinations.
Outdoor cats which are provided supplemental feedings on a regular basis and receive minimal veterinary care are healthier and live longer lives – thereby extending their working careers.
