We can help you decide what personality traits you are looking for in a cat. This is an important decision for you and especially for the cat. If you decide to adopt after thinking it over, you should return with a proper cat carrier and the adoption fee (a modest $75 for cats who have been spayed/neutered and have their shots and $100 for kittens who do have their first shots which includes a nueter/spay coupon with one of our participating veterinarians). Those prices obviously do not cover our costs, but our main goal is to place the kitties in good homes. We ask that any adoptive home be safe and loving and that required medical attention be provided. We do have a basic application you must fill out.
