Please be aware that a home visit will be required before rehoming any of our cats. We do not rehome on main or busy roads. As we are only a small rescue, we only rehome in Lincoln and surrounding villages. All viewings are by appointment only. Please contact us if you are interested in any of our cats.
Our adoption fee is currently £75 per cat or kitten. All of our cats and kittens are neutered, microchipped, wormed and flea treated up-to-date and any other necessary veterinary treatment given. Should there be a problem with any of our cats/kittens, or your circumstances change, the cat is to be returned to Cats in Crisis.
Can you commit yourself to a cat for life?
A cat can live for up to 20 years. You have to be sure you’re in it for the long term
Are you in a position financially to provide for the cat?
Expenses like decent food, cat litter, regular flea & wormer, yearly vaccinations, and vet bills aren’t always the cheapest!
Do you have safe outdoor access?
We expect all adult cats to be kept in for at least 3 months, and kittens until 9 months of age. We also ask you have a cat flap fitted, a window open the cat can access at all times, OR a suitable outdoor cat house so they are never stuck outside in bad weather.
Do you own your home or is it rented?
If you rent we will need to see written proof of permission from your landlord that you are allowed to have pets. Without this we are unable to let you adopt from us.
Are you able/happy to keep a new cat indoors for 3 months, or a new kitten indoors until it is at least 9 months of age?
As previously mentioned; This is for their own safety when settling into the new area. It is best settling them indoors before letting them out to explore. This prevents them from being overwhelmed, getting lost or hurt.
Do you have a safe, clean, loving environment for the cat to live in?
We put the utmost love and care into the cats we rescue. We want them to have the absolute best start in their new lives.
Do you live away from ALL busy roads?
Safety and minimising risk is a huge consideration for us during the adoption process.
If you have any pets, or children, will they be okay with new arrivals?
Dogs must have been cat tested prior to contacting us. We do home to families with children, but we are selective to be sure it’s the right cat/kitten. We will only home to families we can clearly see that the parents will teach the child to fully respect the cat.
Do your working hours allow you the time to settle a cat in?
With new sounds, smells and surroundings, a cat being introduced to a new home requires a lot of love and attention.
