For Community Cat Caretakers: Thank you for logging on to our
Barn Cat Buddies site. Currently we have no barns or other facilities in
reserve and we constantly run ads and post flyers up. If you have kitties
to re-home first please click here to read the protocol . Familiarize yourself
with it so you can speak to farms in your area about how to safely re-home a
kitty. Then feel free to download, print and post barn cat flyers in as many places as you can. Some areas
could be vet's offices/laundromats/tack shops, etc. You can get to places we
cannot. Calls that come in from the areas where you post a flyer will be
referred back to you.
One small effort such as talking up the program and posting flyers can pay off in a big way!
We have expanded our online presence via several other social media outlets. You can see us on Facebook by clicking on the "Facebook Badge" at the bottom of this page. We are also listing our available cats on Petfinder. Volunteer info may be found at our BCB Volunteers Facebook page.
Have you ever wondered how we identify the ferals and community cats that
have been "fixed"? The answer is shown in the image to the left.
This is known as "ear tipping" and there are no adverse effects to the animal. A small piece of the ear is removed (usually during the spay/neuter procedure) while the animal is under anesthesia.
This is a universal sign to both animal welfare advocates and to animal control officers that this feline has already been sterilized.
This is pretty much our theme song!!

This Is Why We Do What We Do
The Starfish Story
Original Story by: Loren Eisley
One day a man was walking along the beach when he noticed a boy picking something up and gently throwing it into the ocean. Approaching the boy, he asked, "What are you doing?"
The youth replied, "Throwing starfish back into the ocean. The surf is up and the tide is going out. If I don’t throw them back, they’ll die."
"Son", the man said, "don’t you realize there are miles and miles of beach and hundreds of starfish? You can’t make a difference!"
After listening politely, the boy bent down, picked up another starfish, and threw it back into the surf. Then, smiling at the man, he said, "I made a difference for that one!"
