What is a Barn Cat?
A barn cat, is a domestic cat that lives primarily out-of-doors, in a feral or semi-feral condition on agricultural properties, or in warehouses and breweries, to name a few businesses where Barn Cats are often "hired" to work. They eat assorted vermin such as rodents and other small animals, ensuring that precious resources aren't lost. The need for the barn cat may have been the original reason cats were domesticated.
