Hello, my name is Cat Adoption

Cat Adoption

A little bit about me..

Owning and caring for a cat is great fun and very rewarding, but it is also a big responsibility and a long-term commitment in terms of care and finances. If you own a cat you are required by law to care for it properly. Cats have an average life span of 16 years and beyond and should be part of the family; you should be committed to involving them in all life changes that can occur in this time such as moving home, having a family and changes in personal circumstance.

We carry out some checks prior to adoption and in some cases suggest minor changes that help ensure your home is as pet friendly as possible. We’ll also call or visit afterwards to make sure you and your new pet are adjusting well to your new life together. If living in rented accommodation we will need written permission from the landlord to confirm that pets are allowed on premises. Please note all of our cats must have daily direct access to an enclosed garden except those with FIV who must be kept indoors.

Can you afford a cat?

The cost of owning a cat could be in the region on £360 per year as a rough guide. You will need to take in to consideration feeding, vet treatment, flea and worm treatment, insurance and boarding if you go away.
