cat on a chicago trash canAfter trapping and neutering a Community Cat, there are times when those cats cannot be reintegrated into their former colonies. This can be for a variety of reasons, including their former location being demolished (as in the case of cats living in abandoned buildings,) dangerous locations, etc. It is for these special cases that Tree house created the Cats at Work program. Cats are placed two or three at a time into residential or commercial settings in order to provide environmentally friendly rodent control. Property and business owners provide food, water, shelter, and wellness to the cats who work for them. In most cases, our Cats at Work become beloved members of the family or team and some even have their own Instagram pages. 

If you’re interested in hiring some kitties to take care of your rodent problems, contact Tree House at 773-262-4000 x114 and ask to speak with Paul Nickerson or the Community Cats team. You can also email us at
