Adopt a cat today
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 change that can occur in this time such as moving home, having a family and changes in personal circumstance.
We carry out a home-visit 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.
