Cats are great companions! The fact that you can have a litter box set-up for them instead of taking them outside gives so many more options to people who love to give a home to a cat, but work and have hard time taking their pet for a walk. Cats do very well living inside and love to “be in charge” of your house while you are at work!
Also, from my own experience, if you have a barn with a warm place for the cats to sleep in in the winter and to get into the shade in the summer, maybe you are a candidate for a barn cat ownership! Sometimes rescued cats that are semi-feral neighborhood cats can be given a wonderful life as your barn cat! You will not have any mice to worry about and the cat will enjoy far more safe and nice life than it otherwise would – Everyone wins.
We will be posting more tips how to keep your outdoor cat more comfortable during temperature extremes as well.
