How to Adopt
1 Check Facebook for cats that are said to be Available. At the top of any listing it will state whether
this is an Available cat. Once they are reserved I will take them down, so any that say 'available' inside August 2014 (or later) are indeed available for a new home.
3 Having sent us your Adoption Interest Form, Email directly about fees, and about how to reserve a pet you are interested in.
Our email: firstname.lastname@example.org
As a guideline you should expect to pay around £175 per cat. You will be asked to reserve your chosen cats quite early in the process because it prevents us having confusing outcomes if several people happen to apply at the same time. Once you have reserved we will deal only with you, until we accept or decline you.
If a pair is available together, expect to pay twice as much:
WE do not get discounts because of having a pair of cats, so we are unsure why people think a pair of cats should be discounted. This isn't a bargain shop.
4 We also need photos of household members, pets and the home inside and out so if progressing, you need to send these to the email address above.
Send any large photo files separately, to email@example.com as soon as
you can after reserving a pet.
If approved, the Reservation Fee becomes your Adoption Fee and nothing more is due.
Around 40% of applicants are declined at present. Fees are refunded same day as the declension
and cat(s) made available again to other applicants.
Top Reasons for Declining Applicants
Stupid questions put to us in an application.
Will it drop hair?
Will he need any vet treatment in the next 5 years? (I have no crystal ball).
Will this cat ever scratch the furniture? (Er, possibly, cats scratch, and again we can't see into the future).
Will this cat like my dog/elephant/pig? (How the heck would we know? If cats have been around dogs, then we would always state it in the write-up).
Lack of thought when answering our questions in an application.
Unsuitable environment/lifestyle for the pet available.
Treating us like a shop, i.e. "is there discount if I buy an old one/two at once".
Those are only a few examples but another priceless example was the lady who sent "family photos" without checking them. Let's just say they were not the pics we expected.
