A few years ago these smart kind people at Philadelphia’s Animal Care and Control Team came up with a great idea to find homes for cats that were not finding adoptive families. This was mainly due to the cats being scared and prone to scratch. Not the cuddly pets most people were hoping to bring home. The answer? Put the cats to work.
One cat got a job at a beer store and saved the owners money and inventory by keeping the brewery mouse free.
Philadelphia’s Animal Care and Control Team established the program about four years ago to place unadoptable cats — the biters and the skittish, the swatters and the ones who won’t use a litter box — into jobs as mousers at barns or stables.
