The cat was needed to help control the rodent population in and around the barn. This charming guy was a rescue, adopted from Metro Animal Services. Upon his arrival at the barn, he lived in a repurposed stall for a period to help him acclimate to his new environment. He settled in great, and now gets to roam the barn and grounds at his leisure.

Barn Cats R Us helped in finding the cat for the Mounted Patrol Unit.

The Seattle Police Foundation is accepting name suggestions from now through August 31. Once there is a slate of names to choose from, members of our Barn Cat Name Selection Committee will vote to select the name. The name that gets the most votes wins!

Below are a few details about this cool cat, to inspire your creative process:

  • Mr. Barn Cat is an outgoing, friendly guy, who is extremely affectionate and loves getting pets.
  • He is pale orange and white, so he looks a bit like a creamsicle, albeit a little rugged around the edges.
  • It was love at first purr for us! He is super cute, loves attention, and enjoys human interaction.
