are asked to supply a vet reference, a personal reference and to
list all current and former pets. Our goal is to match you with
the right pet so you will both be happy for the remainder of your
new pet's long and happy life. Remember- cats often live into their
20s and become very attached to their families. We have seen cats

directly from it's present owner. In those cases you will deal directly
with the pet's owner. Contact information for these adopt from owner
pets will be included in their description. In cases of direct adoptions
from an owner, the terms of adoption will be dictated by the owner,
not The Cat Shack.
