Keeping the mice and rodent population under control is essential on the farm.   The most natural way to accomplish this is with a few good barnyard cats.  Even if you’re not a “cat person” I strongly recommend keeping cats on your property.

I try to keep all of my cats spayed and neutered but there are always surprises and visits from neighborhood ferral cats.  I generally end up with a few litters of kittens each year.  I rehome most of these kittens so they can catch mice on farms and in yards of their own.

I just sold 9 kittens and don’t expect to have any more this summer, but I could end up with a few this fall (2020)
