You must be able to provide cat food and fresh water daily, even though they are working cats you still need to provide food. Please Note: Many believe that feeding working cats will discourage them from moussing, but this is an unfortunate myth. Cats mainly hunt for fun and pleasure, not for sustenance. Failure to feed working cats will actually encourage them to wander away from the property. To keep cats around and encourage them to do the job, they should be well fed on an appropriate diet.
