As you consider adopting a cat, here's what we recommend
First, think about the cat of your dreams. Daydream lots and ponder a little on the
personality traits you are seeking and what characteristics would best fit your household.
To get you started...would you like a cat who...
- Loves to play and zoom around the house and makes you laugh?
- Or one who is a quiet cuddlebug who seeks out your lap?
- Or a confident party cat who loves having all the relatives over?
- Or an older, more sedate couch potato who's seen it all and seeks loving security?
- A best pal or polite company for your current cat, dog, bunny or bird?
- A special pal for the children?
Perhaps you seek a kitty with special needs or special personality who needs a special, accepting family

What Happens After the Adoption?

new family adjusts, your cat's foster family will follow up with you to answer any
questions or concerns as everybody settles in.
