The Glengarry News - - Straight Talk - -- News Staff

The Ottawa Hu­mane So­ci­ety (OHS) is hop­ing Glen­gar­ri­ans in more ru­ral set­tings might be will­ing to pro­vide a home to feral cats.

“If you have a barn, sta­ble, auto re­pair shop, wood work­ing shop, win­ery, brew­ery green­house gar­den cen­tre, stor­age fa­cil­i­ties or warehouse, a nat­u­ral mouser and work­ing whisker cat could be per­fect for you,” says Bruce Roney, Pres­i­dent and CEO of the Ottawa Hu­mane So­ci­ety. “It’s a win-win sit­u­a­tion be­cause not only will cats find a safe place to live a happy life, but these cats will also help those who could ben­e­fit from hav­ing a work­ing cat. And, all cats are vac­ci­nated, mi­crochipped, spayed or neutered and tested for fe­line leukemia virus (FeLV) and fe­line im­mun­od­e­fi­ciency virus (FIV).”

Own­ers of work­ing whiskers cats are ex­pected to pro­vide all the nec­es­sary care to keep the an­i­mals happy and healthy, in­clud­ing fresh food and wa­ter daily. Own­ers must also be will­ing to con­tinue vet­eri­nary care as re­quired and pro­vide shel­ter from the weather at all times, with in­su­la­tion and heat dur­ing the cold months.
