Barn Cat Lady

Rochelle is the founder and writer and driving force behind Barn Cat Lady. She has a zillion and one cat stories to share. As well as experiences that drive her in this cause to help the homeless cats.

She designed this website to educate. To help people to help other homeless cats in their own communities.  After seeing so much misinformation and ignorance about the feral felines of the world, this became her goal.

Most feral and community cat groups get little funding for their TNR efforts.  It’s sad but true. Rochelle decided to inform, educate and get people motivated to do something instead of expecting someone else to fix it. We all must take a stand.

These are her personal opinions, stories, experiences, and missions!

Stubby: One Cool Cat

Stubby: One Cool Cat [Adopted!]

I have another success story to share with you! One of my favorite abandoned cats has finally been adopted into an indoor-only home! Stubby’s story is why I continue to find homes for the cats dumped at the barns, abandoned cruelly by their original owners or other irresponsible people. Stubby’s story started in the Summer of 2019. Abandoned, Unwanted, and …

Barn Cat Tweety with his Eartip

Meet the Cats

Are you ready to meet the cats? After all, I can’t be the Barn Cat Lady without my loyal companions, can I? I have two personal cats that I adopted as older kittens (4-5 months old) and tried ( and failed) to make an indoor pet out of them. They are fully vaccinated and fixed, have microchips and collars (break-away) …

Handsome, Jerk Cat

Handsome, Jerk Cat

I want to introduce you to a very special barn cat named Handsome. I inherited Handsome from my former employer when a horse training center closed down. He was supposed to go to another farm and that person backed out. So I took him with me instead! Handsome is a 13-year-old tabby barn cat, or so I’ve been told. That’s …

Luke & Leia Found at the Barns!

Luke & Leia: Adopted!

If you own or work in any farm or other agricultural property, you have likely found cats or kittens dumped carelessly by selfish, thoughtless people. It happens around 4 or 5 times a year at the barns here, that I’m aware of. How many more litters of kittens abandoned that die, we may never know. Luke and Leia were two …

Foster Kitten Nutter: RIP Little Guy

I wasn’t going to post today, to be honest. I lost a foster kitten this morning and I’m devastated. I decided, however, then what better way to express my grief than to share with you his story and memorialize him here on Barncatlady.com. The Beginning Nutter and his sister, Chips, were born to an outside cat with one other older …

Personal Announcement and Plea for Help: December 2019

Hi, cat ladies (and daddies)! I know I’ve been MIA but I have a very, very good excuse for my lack of communication. Simply put, I’ve been swamped with foster kittens and some cat issues. If you want daily updates and pictures, you can follow me on social media. Follow links are to your right. One of those issues is …
