But the support is there to help you make the right choice for you and the cat.
For example, NCAC insurance partner PetPlan
is one provider that warmly welcomes new owners of cats in their later years.
Once you have thought carefully about getting a cat and feel ready for the responsibility, it's time to take the next step!
Simply visit the National Cat Adoption Centre and meet the cats looking for new homes.
Our staff are happy to discuss the personalities of the cats and which ones would suit you.
We are open 10am-4pm, seven days a week (except Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day).
Before you can take a cat home, we will do an owner interview to ensure that the cat or cats you have reserved fit your circumstances.
An interview is a great chance for you to ask any questions that you may have. In some circumstances we will feel it necessary to do a home visit for cats with particular needs or personalities.
note: Our website updates on a 24 hour cycle, so please bear with us if some cats are already reserved. Don't worry: we have plenty more cats looking for a home.
All of our cats are:
- Vet health-checked
- Neutered (if old enough)
- De-flead and wormed
Given that our cat care costs can be in excess of £150 per cat, we ask for an adoption fee of £80 per cat towards our costs.
