ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

  • All potential adopters must be 21 years of ago (No Exceptions) 

  • We sometime receive a lot of applications for one cat/kitten and will keep track of the order in which the applications are received. Adoptions occur on a first-applied, first-to-adopt basis (but best fit for the cat will also be considered). 

  • Once an application is approved, adopter must make arrangements/schedule an appointment to finalize and pick up within 3 days of the approval. 

  • We are unable to put cats on hold to wait for approval or pick-up beyond the 3 days granted after approval. 

  • Not sure what cat you want to adopt? Potential adopters can still get pre-approved so when they find a cat they might want to adopt, the hard part is already out of the way! Approvals are valid for up to 6 months. 

  • All Cats come with a Vet Certificate to cover the cost of their initial exam and to get the established at a Vet hospital. This is to be used within 10 days of the adoption date. 

  • Cats cannot be adopted as a gift. The primary adopter must be who the cat will be residing with and must be present to finalize the paperwork. 

  • Submitted applications does not guarantee approval. We need to ensure that it is a good fit for both the applicant and the cat. 

  • Applications could take anywhere from 1-5 days to complete depending on when the application was submitted and the checks needed for the applicant.
