According to the MSPCA, of the 20 cats in its care, some of the cats are very friendly and will make excellent house cats. A third of the cats will be “spirit cats” – cats so shy they usually hide in the home. Another third of the cats are “barn cats” – cats that are skittish around people but do well living in barns to control the rodent population and often make friends with other barn animals.
