Animal shelter has feral felines waiting for a barn


BEDFORD - Several feral cats are ready for adoption at the Animal Rescue League of New Hampshire.

These outdoor cats are usually descendants of domestic cats. They can be effective hunters of small animals, especially unwanted barn mice. The shelter says the cats are adaptable and resilient and will thrive in an outdoor structure such as barn, garage, or workshop.

They have been spayed or neutered, have all their vaccinations and most have been microchipped and/or ear-tipped. They also have tested negative for feline aids and leukemia.

Besides shelter, adopters are asked to provide one to two small bowls of food daily and water. The shelter says little to no human interaction is necessary for the cats to live a good life.

Maureen Prendergast, director of Outreach & Investigations at the ARLNH, was in charge of processing these cats. "When we have feral cats at the shelter, we need to find homes for them as soon as possible," she said. "Generally, a feral cat's stay here at the shelter can be a stressful one. We work to get them placed in barn homes as quickly as possible."

Anyone interested should call Prendergast directly at 471-0888.
