Step 2: Home visit.

We will contact you to arrange a home visit for a mutually suitable time. At the home visit we give you advice on feeding, general cat care, enrichment and creating a happy and as safe an environment as possible for your cat.

Step 3: Choosing your cat.

Dependent on the outcome of the home visit, our Homing Officer will be in contact with you to discuss suitable cats in our care or suggest other options with you.

Step 4: Meeting your cat.

When we have discussed and agreed the best cat(s) or kitten(s); we will arrange a viewing for you and/or your family. During that time, you can ask questions of the fosterer to make sure that this is a suitable fit for both you and the cat.  If you decide that you would like to adopt, you can then arrange for a suitable time to collect your new feline friend(s). Assuming both parties are happy with each other, you also have the option of adopting at the viewing and you can leave with a new family member or two!

Step 5: Follow-up home check.

Once your cat has settled into its new home, normally within 3-5 weeks of adoption, we will carry out a follow-up visit. We will see you and you new feline(s) and be able to discuss and give further advise if necessary.

Introducing a new cat or kittens to your home can be rewarding, exciting and maybe challenging at times. It may take a little while for them to settle; however, remember you are not alone. Felines 1st are here to support you and your new feline friend, all you need to do is contact us.
