Providing a GREEN alternative to your pest control problem!
Working Cat (WC) is a program developed to save lives while providing free, eco-friendly round-the-clock pest control for homes and businesses. Feral cats that end up in shelters are euthanized because they are deemed unadoptable. WC programs across the country save the lives of millions of feral cats that end up in shelters by placing them in homes, barns, businesses, etc. that are in need of pest control. Feral cats end up living out the rest of their lives in secure, comfortable locations. It’s a win-win!
In addition to the lives immediately saved when adopting Working Cats, using these cats as an alternative to toxic poisons and pesticides ensures that pets and wild animal populations are kept safe from these poisons. Eliminating toxic substances prevents leakage into the food chain and keeps the ecosystem healthy.
Even if your WC isn't the ideal hunter, no worries! Rodents are biologically programmed to stay away from areas where predators are present. The smell of a WC will immediately deter rats and mice! Working Cats “put to work” in homes and businesses can provide years of service with minimal care.
If you adopt a Working Cat from Kitty Bungalow, we request a holding period of several weeks to acclimate the cats to their new environment. If you do not have a secure area to hold them, we can give you ideas on modifying or purchasing a temporary, escape-proof enclosure. Working Cat adopters are expected to provide food, water, and a safe place for the cats to retreat.
Working Cat adoptions are free of charge. Fill out an application and a Working Cat specialist will contact you. For more information email Alma@KittyBungalow.org.
