Adoption forms are done in person only. We do not adopt out to persons under 21 years of age. Every kitty is current on vet care when placed. All cats are different just as people. They need slow intro's/ into a home it is very scary n stressful. So do not expect an instant fit.
Imagine your 1st day of kindergarten. Now you do not know anyone there. Next think everyone talks a foreign language, Its a bit scary and overwhelming, and stressful. The smells in the are are different, the colors, the shapes the movements. People can point which helps to sort of figure things out. Cats can't point , so the stress and overwhelming-ness and other emotions take over. So they need a few weeks to settle in to get past that. We have some steps to take to help make the adjustment easier.
we ask many questions before setting meet and greets up to make sure that animal is best matched with you!!!!!!
We handle a lot of cats with health issues so the fees run higher. When cats are bonded, they need to go to same home. 2 kitties to same home 2nd kitties fee is discounted. We do not get grants/donations. Every kitty has food they are on- some the best food out there, some on script foods, each kitty needs different food, and will only eat certain foods. we make it so each kitty gets what they need.. Every kitty goes to a full service vet. All cats are fostered to adopted. There is 4 foster parents for these kitties. All gave different issues/needs. We try to match kitties up to new owners. Foster homes are in Muskegon, Lansing, Troy, Farmington Hills, Livonia, and downriver.
