We are so happy that you are considering adopting!

There is some important information for you to understand so please read through everything prior to submitting an adoption application.

At Wild Blue, we have a huge variety of cats and kittens for you to consider. Some of our cats and kittens have a chronic illness, disability, behavioral needs or are geriatric, and they would have otherwise been euthanized at other shelters. If you’re able and willing to adopt a special needs kitty, please make sure to indicate as such on your adoption application so that we’re sure to introduce you to some of our special friends!

Take Our Adoption Quiz

Do you have the time to devote to a new cat?

Even relatively low-maintenance pets require attention from their humans, so if your life is already very busy or you’re not home much, a pet may not be the best idea.

Many animals, especially dogs, exotic birds, and yes, even cats require lots of daily interaction with their humans. Without social interaction and stimulation, pets tend to develop behavior and emotional problems.

Do you have the energy to dedicate to a new cat?

In addition to spending time with you, your pet also deserves to be exercised, played with, trained, groomed, and cuddled. If you come home at night exhausted, you should think seriously about whether you have the energy reserves you’ll need to offer a pet a good quality of life.

Do you have the money to support your new cat?

Caring properly for a pet can put a dent in your budget. You should think realistically about whether you can afford the cost of a high-quality diet, toys, other supplies, obedience training, wellness visits to the veterinarian, etc. In addition, your pet could get sick or injured, and you should have a plan in mind for how you’ll pay those vet bills in the event something serious happens to your animal companion.

Is everyone in your house ready for a new cat?

It’s ideal if everyone in the family or household is onboard with getting a pet. Otherwise, resentments can build and relationships can suffer. It’s a good idea to involve all members of the household in the decision-making process, openly discuss concerns, and determine who will have primary responsibility for the pet’s care.

Does your new cat come with emotional or behavioral “issues” that you can manage?

Behavior issues are the number one reason pets are dumped at shelters. Most of these animals didn’t have the best start in life. For example, they weren’t socialized at the ideal age or endured traumatic events that created behavioral quirks you will need to be prepared to deal with.

Are you committed to positively addressing negative behaviors and phobias that your newly adopted furry companion may arrive with? And can you trust everyone in your household to participate in positive training to correct behavior issues?

Will your existing pet (if you have one) accept your new cat?

You definitely need to plan ahead if you already have a pet and want to add another to the household. Most animals can learn to get along or at least tolerate each other, but there are situations in which it’s just too dangerous or stressful to keep two poorly matched pets under the same roof.

If possible, introduce your existing pet to your potential adoptee in a neutral setting and see how they interact. If it doesn’t go well, I encourage you to consult with an animal behavior specialist before throwing in the towel on adopting a second pet. Often it just takes some time and a few helpful tips to put an existing pet and a new one on the road to a harmonious relationship.

Are you prepared to prioritize your new cat over your belongings?

Pet ownership means there will be the inevitable accidents and other messes in the house, furballs on your furniture and bedding, and the random destroyed slipper or other personal belonging. If you can’t tolerate the thought of a less than perfectly clean house, you might want to reconsider the idea of pet ownership. Even the most well-behaved, well-trained animal companion makes the occasional mess or forgets his manners.

What kind of relationship do you want with your new cat?

It’s important to think about how you’d like your new pet to fit into your lifestyle. For example, if you do a lot of traveling and want to take your pet along, a small dog is probably a better choice than a large breed or a cat.

What changes do you expect in your life in the next 5, 10, or 15 years?

While we can’t predict the future, most of us have a vision for our lives that extends years down the road. Regardless of the type of pet you’re considering, you’ll be taking on a multi-year commitment. It’s important to be reasonably sure your lifestyle will be as pet-friendly in 5, 10, or 20 years as it is today.
