Kinder Goat Breeder
When we used to have chickens in a barn on a previous property, and we had problems all the time with rats eating the chicken feed. Will rats be a problem in a goat barn?
That's what I figured. The rats were always after the feed. So sad about your kitty .Those varmints don't care if it's goats or not. It's the feed they're after. Keep all feed in tight containers that cannot be chewed.
We have resorted to the old fashioned rat traps since my barn kitties have been taken by coyotes.
Our rescue cat was really scared for the first two days she was here, but now she greets me every morning and every night to get pet. I've even picked her up! And she'll paw at me when I go to leave, because she wants me to stay and pet her longer. She's probably an exception, but not all unadoptable cats end up being unmanageable.If I got cats, they would be from the "Barn Buddies" program. Those are cats that are mostly feral and therefore un-adoptable. So, the flea problem would remain a problem. I just can't bring a cat here that would infest my dogs with fleas.
