HOW LONG WILL MY ADOPTION TAKE TO PROCESS?
Depending on how busy we are, it can take anywhere from 2-14 days. Speed of the process depends largely on your cooporation!
WHY CAN'T I JUST ADOPT ONE KITTEN?
We here at The Animal Project have a policy that all kittens under the age of 1 year must go in pairs or to a home with another young cat. This is crucial to their development as well as very beneficial to the new family. Kittens learn how to play, they are less destructive, and it helps with their long term health of dealing with anxiety and loneliness. Plus, kittens who play with each other are less likely to get into mischief on their own! There are no exceptions to this rule.
WHY DO YOU NEED TO COME TO MY HOME?
We take the happiness, health, and safety of our cats very seriously. Such an in depth adoption process ensures we only adopt to serious, committed, and safe homes.
WHY CAN'T I DECLAW MY CAT?
There are many reasons you shouldn't declaw cats! A cat uses its claws to defend itself, play, mark it's territory, groom, climb, and grip. Declawed cats can be incredibly anxious and uncomfortable. It's analogous to removing part of a human's fingers. If your cat is using it's claws inappropriately there are many ways you can correct the behavior. For more information please visit the ASPCA page on this topic.
CAN I COME VISIT CATS AT YOUR SHELTER?
We actually do not have a physical shelter! All of our cats are in foster homes when they are not at Petco on Saturdays. If you cannot make it to Petco from 2pm-6pm on Saturday and are seriously interested in adopting, we can try to schedule a visit at foster homes on a case by case basis. Please email us for details.
YOU KEEP THE CATS IN CAGES AT PETCO, CAN I KEEP MY CAT IN A CAGE AT HOME?
