When people talk about homestead animals, they’re usually referring to cows, goats, chickens, and other livestock. But in this video from Becky’s Homestead, she talks about other types of animals that every homestead should have.
For example, cats are great to have around because they keep mice and rats away. Also, livestock feed tends to attract small animals like squirrels, and cats keep those away as well. Cats are very inexpensive to buy and feed (especially since they can catch a lot of their own food), so they’re well worth the investment.
