Hours Fees Application Description
The Cats listed on this Website are at several different locations so please call the phone numbers listed for each cat and make an appt with the foster mother to meet the cat or kitten. Be sure to call the foster home before visiting to confirm that the cat or kitten is still available for adoption. We can't hold kittens, so if someone is approved to adopt and visits before you, they will have first pick of the kittens. If you have an approved application and have visited the kitten, most foster parents will hold the kitten until the kitten is ready to go to your home. Be sure to fill out the application completely. Incomplete applications will delay the adoption. If possible, fill out the application before visiting the cat or kitten. That will increase your chances of being able to take home the kitty on the same day. Once an application is approved you can make an appointment to meet and adopt a kitten. We do check references and may do a home visit, so same day adoptions are not always possible. All foster homes are independent, so check with the foster home. Also, ask her about which cats are available in our "seniors for seniors" program.
Unless otherwise posted, the adoption fee varies from $75-$100 for adult cats and $100-$125 for kittens. Email the foster home for adoption fees on other animals. This includes spay and neutering, first vaccines, worming, flea treatment and age appropriate viral testing. Adult cats are combo tested for FeLV/FIV, while kittens are screened for feline leukemia. Adoption fees cover the vet services provided for the cat or kitten you adopt. Since we also provide veterinary services for stray and feral cats for whom an adoption fee is never collected, your adoption fee may also help cover the costs to spay, neuter and vaccinate these less fortunate cats. If you are unable to adopt at this time but would like to support our efforts consider becoming a foster family. program.
Many of our foster homes accept email or printed adoption questionnaires. It is best to email these ahead of time before setting up a meeting. You can copy and paste the questionnaire into your email and send it to the foster home. **For a fast response, please be sure to email the questionnaire to the foster home listed in the post. Questionnaires sent directly to Cat Tales will take longer because they will have to look up the location of the cat and forward your email to the appropriate foster home.
**Please contact the foster home directly. Email addresses and/or phone numbers are listed at the end of the write-ups for each individual cat.
