Thank you for your interest in adopting!

STEPS TO TAKE

  1. Get your whole family ready for a lifestyle change & to welcome a new family member for life. Then get your home safe & ready for a cat.

  2. Read through the safety measures below which you need to install to keep your cat safe & details on all the supplies you need to buy for your cat. 

  3. Read through the Adoption Contract as adoption is a lifelong commitment and cats can live 15 to 20 years.

  4. Visit us at the Kitten Sanctuary at 737A North Bridge Road, Singapore 198705 to meet the cats.

  5. Lastly & most importantly, kindly be aware that you should keep your cat strictly indoor as cats that roam are picked up by the authorities and are often killed. They can also get Feline Aids & Leukemia if scratched or bitten by an infected cat or die in accidents.

SAFETY

SAFETY of the animal is top priority so do take a look at all the meshing requirements.

Send us labelled photos of your cat proofing measures on your front gate, windows of living room, bedrooms, kitchen, balcony (if you have) so that we can get approval from the fosterer.

Please whatsapp the labelled photos to +65 9126 7379.

Fosterers normally wait for two weeks before moving on to the next potential adopter. Hence do keep in touch and let us know if you need help. We will then get the final approval from the fosterer/rescuer.

Kittens are released at 2.5 months after the vet clears their health. Kitten Fading Syndrome can occur for kittens below 8 weeks and it is traumatizing to adopt & then your kitten passes away.

ADOPTION costs $80, which only partially helps to cover some of the medical costs including vaccinations, de-worming, vitamins, medicines to get rid of fleas, mites & heartworm, sterilization for those 6 months & above etc

Adopt a Mama or Mama and her child and adoption fees will be waived off. #NoMamaGetsLeftBehind!

Adoption Contract is signed when the cat/kitten is handed over.

Food

Cats are notorious for not drinking enough water, thus leading to urinary and kidney issues. Please feed at least one wet meal a day, and one dry meal.

Dry food for Adult cats:

Adult cats (here) eat Wellness Turkey and Salmon (bottom left pic) mixed with Royal Canin Oral (bottom right pic).


Cats are strict carnivores, they NEED a high meat content in their food as they get all their energy from Proteins and Fats. Please read the information link provided below.
