What do you do with feral cats that won’t be house pets? In the past, animal shelters had to euthanize them since nobody would adopt them. However, feral cats may have a new use as rodent killers for farms and warehouses.
Farms and warehouses have a rodeo problem, so they typically use poison to control the rodent population. Yet it’s far cheaper to adapt some feral cats and let the cats take care of the rodents. After all, the cats enjoy catching rodents and the farm or warehouse owner enjoys having less rodents around to wreck anything. By providing feral cats a purpose, such farms and warehouses save cats and keep their rodent population down.
