Help rescue cats find their forever home this National Adoption Day

Help rescue cats find their forever home this National Adoption Day


Rescue cats are really affectionate –
lovey and purry and smoochie. They’re all happy and healthy and ready for their
new homes. We have them desexed, vaccinated, microchipped, and their flea and worm
treatment is up to date so that they’re healthy and happy when they get to their
new home. The best part of matching a new cat with its owner is that of course the
cats found it’s its forever home. Finding the perfect cat can be difficult
and you might want to meet a number of cats before you find the cat that’s
perfect for you. So things to consider are the makeup of your household – so if it’s
just mum and dad or if you’ve got younger children, older children, those
types of things, you need to think about. How the cat’s going to fit in because
the cat is going to be a family member for 10-15, even 20 years, sometimes before we offer a cat up for adoption they are placed into a foster carer’s home where
they can live out their natural life so they learn how to be a cat basically so
people love them and care for them just as if they were their own while we’re
getting their vet treatment and all those sorts of things done. So fostering
can be for a day, a week, a month – it really just depends on the cat and how
long they need in care. That foster carer gets to know their personalities and
their quirks, because all cats have unique personalities and quirks, which is
why we love them, so that we can give our potential adopters a really good picture
of what that cat’s like and how they’re going to behave once they’re in a home. So some cats are a bit shy-er, some cats are quite outgoing, some cats like a lot
of space, some cats are quite happy and comfortable in a small home, so the
foster carers can really tell us all of that information so that we can really
give the potential adopter a good idea of the cat that they are taking home and
how they’re going to be once they get home. So when we talk to potential
adopters we’re really able to tell them a lot about the cat because the cat’s
been in foster care they’ve been in a normal home environment not in a little
cage where they’re probably unlikely to display their personality
quite so well. So the foster carers really are the ones that get to know the
cat and then we can pass all of that information on to our potential adopters. We then invite potential adopters to come and meet them so they would meet
them in the foster carer’s home and be able to have a chance to interact with
them learn all about them and then make a decision as to whether that’s the
right cat for them. The Pet Rescue and PETstock National
Adoption Day really helps us to showcase our cats to the public. We’re able to get a lot of attention from people. People become more aware
that adopting a cat is an awesome idea and that they should get up that morning
and go on a cat. Maneki Neko cat rescue has a great relationship with PETstock. We have cats in store for people to go and meet anytime that the store is
open but we absolutely love the National Adoption Day because it really does give
people an opportunity to meet a number of cats.
