Pre Adoption Form

We are grateful to you for adopting our cats and kittens – Thank You. We and our fosterer’s have done our best to care for these animals and they deserve the best homes possible.

If you are interested in adopting a cat or kitten, please take a look at our albums on our “Cats and kittens available Facebook Group

We have put together some new owner guidelines which we hope you will find useful.

Introductions: Slow introductions to other cats work best. Give them their own space and time to become accustomed to each other. This may take days, weeks or even months.

Feeding: Adult cats will usually eat either tinned cat food or biscuits, or both. Kittens should be fed on wet kitten food initially at regular intervals and kitten biscuits should always be available. Cats are carnivores. They need Taurine on a regular basis to stay healthy. This usually comes from their meaty or fishy food and biscuits. Cats cannot live on a vegetarian diet as they cannot manufacture taurine.

Veterinary Care: You should register your kitten with your local vets for its vaccinations. If a cat or kitten falls ill, we are always available to give advice and your local vet will be pleased to give appropriate treatment. Kittens can deteriorate rapidly and help should be sought as early as possible.

Worming: Kittens over 8 weeks, and adult cats, should be wormed using a product recommended by your vet regularly. Spot on treatments are much easier than trying to push a worming tablet down a cat’s throat! Please be aware that not all wormers treat all worms. Cats, particularly outdoor cats, have a variety of worms, so it is wise to alternate worming products.

Flea Treatment: Cats and kittens should always be treated using a product recommended by your vet. We would advise you to consult a vet for the correct products for flea and worm treatments as some products available in supermarkets and pet stores can be harmful to kittens.

Neutering: Adult Cats and kittens over the age of 4 months will be neutered by us before they leave. For younger kittens, we provide a prepaid neutering voucher to new owners, redeemable at any branch of Donaldsons vets.

Cat Bites: Even the most domesticated cat can bite in stressful situations. Cat bites are painful and can cause infection. Hospital treatment should be sought immediately.

Boarding: We cannot board your animals e.g in the case of a holiday or house move, however your local cattery should be able to help. Please note, catteries require current vaccination certificates in order to board your animals. Alternatively, family, friends or neighbours might be prepared to call in each day to feed your pet and clean out the litter tray.
