1. They won't wake you in the morning flying around the house.
2. You know what you are getting. If they are lap cats they will stay lap cats. The cute kitten that sleeps on your shoulder may not want to be held when it is grown..
3. Adult cats make better pets than kittens do for children, especially children under 5 years of age. Kittens mistakenly scratch people when they play as they have not yet learned to keep their claws retracted. Adult cats have learned to take cues from people, something kittens don't know how to do.
4. Adult cats make better companions for other adult cats that are already in the household. An adult cat generally does not appreciate a rambunctious kitten, and the adult often gets harassed when the kitten reaches adolescence. This can cause a lot of stress for the older cat. Generally, cats over 3 years of age are less playful and live more peacefully with other cats 3 years of age or older
5. Most cats up for adoption have completed their vaccinations. With kittens, they are started on their first set of shots (keep in mind kittens need a series of three or more vaccinations).
Who We Are
We are an all volunteer group with no paid employees or officers. We have two main goals, first we teach the importance of spaying and neutering pets and second we teach people to respect and treat all animals with kindness.
All our domestic animals are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. All cats have been tested for Feline Leukemia and FIV. All dogs have been tested for Heartworms. All animals are up to date on vaccinations at the time of adoptions. A portion of our group TNR (Trap, Neuter, Release) the feral cats and maintain their colonies.
Adopting a friend
Please remember before you adopt a new friend that is is a long term committment. You must be able to take your new friend with you when you move. You must be able to afford vet bill, quality food, medications and groomings if necessary. You must have the time to spend with them. Pets are met to be a part of the family and not put outside as a yard fixture or just having food and water put down. If you can not commit time to a new pet wait until you can. You can fill out an online adoption application HERE
