Courtesy Listings

We occasionally list a cat as a courtesy to someone outside 9 Lives who has rescued a cat, wants to find it a home, and will keep it until a home is found. These cats have not been surrendered to us, so these are not 9 Lives cats. Contact information for the individual is given in the listing.

While we make an effort to understand the full history of all animals associated with our rescue, 9 Lives has not personally met or evaluated the cats marked as courtesy listings and makes no guarantees as to their current health or temperament.

Barn Cats / Mouse Patrol

Are you looking for a kitty who prefers the outdoor life and would love to chase mice in your barn or workshop? These kitties are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and may be ear tipped. They will gladly accept your food, but not your pets and scratches, but in time may become friendlier as they get used to their new surroundings. These cats typically go to their outdoor homes in pairs and need to be confined in an outbuilding for approximately 4 weeks so that they are acclimated to their new surroundings and do not take off. We can also supply a dog crate for this acclimation period. If you are interested in our working cats, please fill out the barn cat application below and we can match you up with new feline employees!
