"Their [cats] effortless passing between the wild and domestic worlds suggests the kind of grace we need as a species to move between nature and culture."

REHOMING HINTS & QUESTIONS
Here are a few helpful hints and questions when trying to find a good home for your cat. It is important to match your cat with its new home.
- Very important: Find out if the potential adopter rents or owns their home. If they rent ask them to give you the name of their landlord so that you can contact them and make sure that pets are allowed. They will need to contact their landlord ahead of
time and let the landlord know that you will be calling.
- Very important: Contact their Veterinarian about their current and past veterinary history. They will need to contact their Veterinarian to authorize release of their history to you.
- Ask them their age. For example, a kitten with an elderly person might not be a good idea.
- Find out the number of adults and children residing in their home.
- Ask if their home is quiet or noisy.
- Ask if all family members are aware that they are thinking of adopting a cat.
- Ask if anyone in their family is allergic to cats.
- Ask if they presently own a dog or a cat. If they own a dog, is it friendly with cats? If they own a cat would it like a new cat in the house?
Does the cat you are rehoming like other animals?
