The Barn Cats
Bronx, Luna, Sir Percival
Our big old barn certainly had the space to house some feral barn cats - and we figured soon enough some strays would show up, or maybe we would find a litter in an out building that we would have to spay and neuter. But it wasn't until
Spring 2019, after 2 and a half years and a growing rodent problem, that we surprisingly had to go searching for feral cats to adopt!
That's when we found Bronx and Luna, a bonded pair. The rescue they were with was unable to be rehabilitate them into house cats and they needed a barn home. Bronx remains quite feral and uninterested in humans (apart from convincing them it's dinner time) but Luna is learning to appreciate a nice scratch behind the ears.
Sir Percy came in July of 2019. Since he appears to be a purebred, most likely he was dumped in the country as an “unwanted” gift. He was brought to us around 3 years old, starving and completely feral. He has come a long way since! We had him fully vetted and neutered, and after some care he put on weight and grew a glorious winter coat and handsome mane! He is still food obsessed but we find it takes our starvation cases about a year to relax about food.
