While barn cats might live more independently, they need the same basic care a house cat receives.
Adopting a barn cat (s) involves:
1. Providing some sort of shelter—whether it be a barn, garage or other structure.
2. Providing daily food, water and possible veterinary care.
3. In order for the cat (s) to become accustomed to their new surroundings, it is recommended that they be confined for a period of several days before being allowed out.
Feeding canned food to relocated cats at least until the cats are released after their confinement period will tend to keep the cats around while getting used to their new environment and food source. After that, dry food is preferable.
