The adoption procedure:
If you connect with one of our cats or kittens online or at the habitat, after you have submitted an application, you can contact us to arrange to meet them at PETCO, and get to know each other a little better. Once you decide on a particular cat or cats, you will need to fill out an adoption application. You can get one of these online (under the Applications tab above), or at PETCO. If your application is approved, we’ll set up an appointment for you to pay and pick up your cat/kitten. You will need to bring cash to pay for your new feline family member, and also a cat carrier to take them home in. Although PETCO sells cardboard carriers, a good, sturdy non-disposable cat carrier is a good investment for those times when your cat needs to travel (like when going to the vet’s). It is not safe for cat or driver to have the cat loose in the car. Occasionally, an adopter will have to wait to take the cat home until after we have the cat spayed or neutered. If this is the case, we will tell you.
If you know that you would like to adopt one of our cats, but you’re having trouble deciding which one, or if you’re waiting for a certain type of cat, you may fill out an application in advance. That way, if you later fall in love with one of our cats or kittens, you will be able to take them home sooner. Occasionally, an adopter will have to wait to take the cat home until after we have the cat spayed or neutered. If this is the case, we will tell you.
