Raphael is ready to put his skills to work for you! Raphael is one of several cats looking for homes through our Working Cat Program. This program is for cats who are not looking to be house pets, but would love to help provide you with rodent control for your barn, shop or vineyard. Can you provide a warm, safe shelter like a barn or shop to keep the cat protected from the elements, along with daily food and clean water? Cats can't live on mice alone! You can give Raphael or another working cat a second chance for the life they’re suited to live. They may not reward you with affectionate purrs, but you’ll have the reward of knowing you saved a life! Learn more and apply for a Working Cat here.
