Cat Tips

Local animal shelters often work together within a community, so don't restrict your pet search to just one type, such as a "no-kill shelter."

Second-Hand Cat, First-Rate Pet

By Timothy Brill

Second-Hand Cat, First-Rate Pet

When Jack and Debi Roney of Vienna, Va., decided to get a kitten, they set their sights on a lively, energetic animal. But that was before they met Minnalouche, a calico that a local humane society fostered. "She seemed to need a lot of love and warmth," Debi recalls. "When I picked her up, she snuggled under my sweater. She seemed to really need me."

Feeling needed appealed to the Roneys then, just as it has in the 13 years since they adopted Minnalouche. Steve Aiken, an animal behaviorist from Wichita, Kan., understands why. Adopting from a shelter, humane society or rescue group "means helping a cat who's already there and needs the love of an owner," he says.

The Joy of Adopting
When you adopt a cat, there's the obvious benefit that you're providing a home for the animal. But there are more advantages, including:

  • Socialization Many shelter cats were previously owned and socialized, so they're more likely than strays to make a happy adjustment to your household.
  • Expert advice The staffs at animal shelters can help take the guesswork out of choosing the right pet. Since they interact daily with the kittens and cats, they have a feel for their moods.
  • Lower costs Adopting a cat is less expensive than buying one. You can save money in medical costs too. Many cats have already been spayed or neutered and if they haven't, shelters usually reimburse a portion of the cost when a spay or neuter is requested.

Despite the advantages, shelter animals can have higher stress levels. "Shelter cats have been in another home, snatched up and brought to a shelter with the strange sights and sounds of many other animals, and then snatched up again and brought to their new home," says Aiken.

But that's no reason to look down upon the animal. "The idea that a shelter cat has something wrong with it is outdated," says Nancy Peterson, Human-Animal Bond Specialist for The Humane Society of the United States in Washington, D.C. "It's more likely something was wrong with the previous owners -- maybe they weren't as committed to the animal as they should have been."

Making the Match
To make the adoption work, here's what experts suggest:

  • Do your research Find out as much information as possible about adoptions. Check out the Humane Society of the United States' Web site and local humane societies and animal shelters.
  • Ask questions Find out everything you can about the kitten or cat. Is it good around kids? Has it ever lived in a multi-cat or multi-pet household? How does it get along with the other animals at the shelter?
  • Take your time Peterson compares the adoption process to dating. "You just don't meet your soul mate the first time you go out with someone," she says. "You shouldn't have those expectations when picking a cat either. It's worth the wait to find exactly the right animal."
  • Be realistic Talk to cat owners and read books so you know what to expect. "If you've never had a cat before, some of their habits, such as shedding or scratching, may surprise you or may annoy you," Peterson says.
  • Seek help Both you and your pet need time to get to know each other. If you have problems adjusting, call the shelter for advice. "The nice thing about adoptions is that the staff is committed to a lifetime match," Peterson says.

Nicole LaMattina says: I'm from Malden, MA and I have 2 cats that I need to find a home for. I have a male cat named smoky (long hair smoky gray cat) since 1997. I found smoky wondering outside and would feed him daily until one day I invited him and kept him up until present. I also have a female cat named Lulu (short hair), I have had lulu since 2004 because a friend needed to find a home for her because my friends neighbor could not take care of her appropriately. Unfortunately, I have recently gone through a tough divorce and it has left me in a position where I can no longer keep my cats which is rather depressing but I am desperately looking to find them a good home and I want to make sure they are well taken care of. I am willing to do whatever it takes to find them a good home, even if it means that I have to take on another job or sell my furniture if necessary. I love these cats very much and it breaks my heart that i have to do this but I do not have much of a choice at this point in time. Not to mention, i do not have much time either. Please help. Thank you!

My problem is i live with my sister who owns a dog and Toffee has to stay in a big room all day until the dog gets put up for the night. To me this is not fair, Toffee should be able to roam around freely to. So I don t want to give my cat up but I dont want him being cooped up all day either. I am giving Toffee away to a nice person or family. He is spayed, declawed and has a tracking device in his left ear.If you can pick him up you can have him. I only ask that I may come visit him every now and then if you are in the MI area.

Alice says: Asheville, NC - Healthy 5 year old neutered male cat is searching for his fur-ever home. Very sweet and handsome DLH, black (and some rust) with white markings. He enjoys sitting in your lap or being nearby, playing with toys, lounging on a kitty tower gazing out a window and sunbathing outside - he really is great company to have around. Although not mean, he has chased female cats before, so would do best in a one cat household with a single adult / adult couple. I am moving at the end of the month (10/1/2010) and desperately NEED to find this beautiful boy a great home before then.

Lori Winters says: I live in Fremont California and recently there has been some things happening in my neighborhood that have me worried, puzzled, and angry. 5 cats in less than 2 weeks have disappeared with out a trace. None of these cats where new to the neighborhood so I don't see them gettong lost. All of them where adult cats ranging in age from 2-5 years old. None of them would have any reason to run away all of a sudden. Unfortunately myself and the other owners fear that someone is getting rid of them. All owners have been searching online as well as local shelters and so far nothing. If anyone knows anything about this or has any suggestions to share. There are 5 adult cats 2 female and they are spayed the other 3 are males and they have not yet been neutered. A briefe discription just incase anyone sees a cat fitting these discriptions the fisrt is a female tabby black and brown strips she has white under her chin and her chest and all four paws are white that is why her name is boots she also has the tip of her right ear cut off. The second is also a female brown and black calico with some orange as well she is a petite kitty who goes by the name Shrimp who loves attention. The third is a male seal point short hair siamese with blue eyes he is mostley an off white or taupe color with dark features around his eyes and nose as well as his ears and tail and he has white tips on his paws his name is Sushi. The third cat is a male all black except for one whisker that is white he feels and looks like velvet and is a very large kitty and goes by the name Rufus. The fifth cat is a male and is a brown and black tabby he goes by the name Theo.

Whitney says: My fiance has two sweet cats. I have lived with them for a year, but my allergies are keeping me sick all the time. We just can't keep them anymore. There is a 7 year old long-haired black and white, and a 9 year old short-haired orange and white. Both have no front claws. They are very sweet, and I am not a cat person, but I really like these cats. Looking for a good home for them in Texas, preferably in Central Texas.

Bonnie Wooden says: I have 3 adorable kittens and 1 male cat that I desperately need to find homes for. They were left in a vacant duplex next to me and I have been taking care of them and making sure that they were healthy before I tried to find a home for them. The kittens are so lovable but I can not keep any as I already have 2 cats of my own. But they are very healthy and need someone to love them and give them a good home. The male cat has been abused, but is very loving. He loves to sleep with my kids so I know he would be great for anyone with children. The problem is his tale has been broken by a group of kids who thought it would be funny to cover his tale with grease tie a string around it and hang him upside down. I was so heartbroken over how cruel people can be. I would love to keep him myself as we are becoming attached to him but my landlord says they all have to go and I dont have much time. I am hoping that someone can help me. At the time I am keeping all of them in my house so that nothing else happens to these poor babies. I am affraid to take them to the shelter as they may be put down. These cats are way to lovable and playful for that to happen. Please help!!!!

Charlotte says: A stray cat (not much older than a kitten) wondered up at my boyfriends house. I tried to find out who the cat belonged to, but nobody would claim the cat. So at first I didn't feed her thinking that she would go back home, but it quickly dawned on me that somebody must have put her out here. So I started feeding and taking care of the cat (my boyfriend was not happy about that at all). Then the cat had kittens - we found homes for all but two. We were told that these 2 were males, but to our surprise they had kittens too. Now we have a stray female (white with yellow and black spots), 2 older kittens (one almost tortise shell and one looks like Sylvester), and 7 kittens (himalian lookin, yellow fluffy, black fluffy (runt), black/white, white with yellow &black spots (also runt size and the sweetest of them all), white with yellow spots, and mostly black/orange calico). My boyfriend who doesn't like cats says they have to go and is going to take them to a shelter (of course they will get killed). Please somebody help me find homes for these cats. They are all very loveable, sweet, and playfull. They are all outside cats.

Candace says: I kinda understand the thought above me with the cats purpose, kinda. there are other things you can do about rats and mice. a neighbor of mine had some cats and one ended up at my house and my son fell in love with it so we fed it outside and now another neighbor died and his cat showed up here. the first one seems to be sick or just hurt real bad. tomcat and is always fighting and we live in a rural area and i think he would be a perfect cat inside someones home. i am always picking ticks off of him and he has big sores now and is losing weight. i cant afford to take him to the vet and no shelter will take him so if anyone has any suggestions on what to do i would appreciate it. i hope someone can take him for me and take care of him. there are too many stray cats and dogs out here.

We are in Danger! We are killing and caging all our Cats, a bad idea! I use to see a lot of cats out here and it was good. Not many mice or rats, now there are no cats around thanks to the Humane Society and my home and field is over run with mice and rats. They are chewing into my home, destroying it. It is hard enough in this day and time to make ends meet let alone trying to fight to have to do all the repairs because of rats and mice! We got into trouble once before because of getting rid of our cats, Remember the plague!!!!!! We are heading for another Disaster!!!!!!!!!! I do believe in spaying and neutering but they take all cats. The vets clip an ear when they have bin spayed, so they should let them go, not put them in a cage with other sick, wild cats like they did one of mine. He got sick and it cost me a lot to get him well again. Cats have a purpuse in this world and we are not letting them do their jobs. We are heading for trouble. God help us we need to change our way of thinking or we are going to do so much damage we won't be able to stop it. LET OUR CATS RUN FREE AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Leon says: in response to Ruthann: you should only speak if you know everyone's situationa. I have grown up with cats my entire life and a few years ago had a medical procedure that changed everything for me. I can not longer enter my own Mother's house without taking an alergy pill because of her two cats. It has nothing to do with the grass either. She moved from one state to another and the same reaction. I have two cats also, but they do not bother as much but I still have the problem. It is true people use that as an excuse but sometimes there comes a time when the cats and family have to be matched with someone else and maybe it is better for the cats. Before you do slamming strangers do your homework.

Posted on May 6, 2009

Irene says: People have different health.And allergic reations can to be from different things but not from cats. People with allergic ractions should make tastes in the medical centre-on what they have more allergic reactions and they need to keep all clean in their house, and health life is important for them becouse they need stronger imunitet Most people with allergic reactions can to live with pets,cats and dogs.

Penny Russell says: I do volunteer work for E.A.R.S. Englewood Animal Rescue Sanctuary in Englewood Florida. We have many cats and kittens that need a home. You can volunteer to foster a pet until it gets adopted or you can outright adopt a cat. All cats are spayed or neutered, rabies shots and litter trained. You can find a loveable kitten or an older cat that needs a new home. We are a no-kill sanctuary. I can be reached Mon - Fri 10 til 1 at (941) 475-0636 This is kitten season and everyday we get calls about a new litter of kittens. Please help us help these beautiful animals by giving them a home and love. sincerely, Penny Russell

Ruthann says: I really think all these people who says they have allergic reations to cats have a cop out either they got something they decided they don't want or just tired of it and don't want it any more....My husbands mother for years said my husband was highy allergic to cats....guess what mom we have 7 cats for 6 yearsw and your son is allergic to trees and grass. My house is cleaned with bleach water from top to bottom every three months and if you live in a wood home you would find out your more allergic to your mold from your own home then cats......try and clean with bleach water on your trims on the floors and walls and everything else every three months and you might just find out about your allergies there are a few who are truly allergic but not as many as I see and hear about. Further your knowledge before you purchase or get something these poor animals just go from home to home from your allergies. It would be common sense to find out if your allergic to something before you bring it into your home....

If you can find a glucose monitor meter and test strips, it's very easy to keep a diabetic cat. Checking the blood glucose level can become a part of a twice daily intimate bonding experience.

Please help me, I can't bring any of these cats in my house, they have to stay in the basement and that is no life for them. Please help. None of these cats are real affectionalte, in-your-face type due to living in the basement all their lives. All these cats are litter box savy.

Hobo says: Hobo is a 4 month old male orange tabby kitten. we found him when he was 5 weeks old, under a small walkway bridge, he had no siblings or mother. At first he was very shy and scared, but after giving him time to adjust at his own pace, he has become a very loving and affectionate kitty. When you first take him he will probably be very shy again for a short period, but we know if you give him time and love he will warm up the way he did to us. we really need to find a home for this kitty, because we already have 3 cats of our own. (Hobo gets along with them very well.) If you take Hobo, you need to just be patient and he will come around. He is a really good cat.

christy hite says: I have had more litter box stubborn cats. Sasha had to have one in the bedroom by the chest she slept on. Homeo would not go in if the butt of the box was against the wall. It had to be turned side ways with nothing close to the box. Then Fuzzy would not get in the box at all. I put out 8 litter boxes. Finally I had a rotiseirre chicken box and put super cheap litter thats waht she liked. The 8 litter boxes worked in my tiny house to.

Robin Hart says: Behavior problems, even litter box problems are no excuse for abandoning the cat that you adopted and promised to take care of for the rest of its life. Maybe you don't clean the box often enough. Maybe your cat doesn't like the kind of litter you are using. You say you have ruled out medical problems but that is very often at the root of a litter box problem, so go back to your vet and ask him or her to help you figure out why your cat will not use the litterbox. But do not try to find another home for your cat. We don't give away our children if they have behavioral problems. You have a responsibility to this cat to provide a loving home for the rest of its life.

Posted on August 10, 2008

Robin Hart says: If you are feeding stray cats, go to Alley Cat Allies web site at www.alleycat.org to get advice about what to do and how to care for them. Many stray cats are feral (wild) and they will never make good pets. They want to live outdoors - they do not want to live in a house with people. Feral cats should usually not be relocated unless their lives are in danger. They only know the area where they live - where to get food, where to hide, where the dangers are - and they will often end up dead if relocated. Trap them to get them neutered, put them back where they live, and feed them every day. If you find a stray cat that can be touched, that cat can become a pet again. Please feed the cat daily and take it inside if at all possible while you look for a new home. You can place an ad on Petfinder online, post ads at local vets offices, send out an email at work. Beware of those who would adopt a cat to use for dog fights or resell to laboratories. Remember, if you adopted a cat or found a cat, that cat's life is your responsibility until you find it a new, loving home. If it is feral you must feed it for the rest of its life, or find someone else who will. For the love of God, please don't just turn away.

Denise Skinner says: I have been feeding stray and feral cats that have been left at my home for about two years. I am trying to find a place that will help me trap them to find them homes or fix them. So I can keep the population down. There are getting to be to many of them. I live in Ocala, Florida. The only place I have found will euthanized them. They cannot bring a trap for 5 months. I was told at this time it is against the law to feed them and if I do I will be fined $200.00 per cat. Any suggestion? Denise

adopt a cat save a life says: Petfinder has a place to post for animals in need of a new home. You can also contact a rescue group that may be able to help with re-homing. If your looking for a certain type of cat many shelters can put you on a wait list and contact you when the breed comes in. If you have allergies, don't believe that there's a certain breed that won't affect you, allergies vary between people as do allergens produced by the individual animals. You have to spend time with the animal to see how they affect you. Don't take meds before unless you plan to take them all the time. Allergies of the owner are a common reason for pets to end up in shelters.

Joyce Wells says: I live in the country, about 16 miles from Somerset Ky. and about 16 miles from London Ky. The problem is we have four or five cats that we have been feeding, that are wild cats that live in the woods by our house. Most of them are females and they are having babies. We now have 2 kittens that are about 4 months old. We was able to catch them and they are tame. A couple of days ago my daughter found another little kitten in our flower bed crying its little heart out. She brought it in and the next morning we took it out side to see which cat it belonged to and the cat that claimed it we knew wasn't its mother. But she also had kittens and she went and got her baby and brought it to us. It is only about a week old. We searched and searched and we found one more. So now we have a kitten about 4 weeks old and 2 about 1 week old and we need to find homes for these little guys. I can't afford to keep them. I live on a fixed income and I can't afford to get all of these cats fixed. I really can't afford to feed them but I just can't stand to see any animal hungry. If it didn't cost so much to have animals fixed there wouldn't be so many animals having babies all the time. If any one can help me and take some of these cats I would be most grateful. This is my email address: joy3wel@yahoo.com thanks for reading this.

I need to get them to someone that can provide a loving home for them. They have clawed up our carpets and destroyed some of the furniture and I've been asked to get them out or else. They both probably need to be outside but our development is too crowded to let them out. I don't want to send them to an untimely death at the local SPCA but I'm running out of time.

Pam Hughes says: We live on Table Rock Lake in Lampe Missouri. The property across the street from us, a dock builder, has been forclosed on and all of the buildings, etc. are in the process of being destroyed by the new owners. Unfortunately the previous owners were cat and dog horders. The dogs have been taken care of,k but we still have cats that need homes. These cats are beautiful, greys, white/gold, are the predominate colors. I don't know how many are actually on the property, but we have a count of six at the moment. Unfortunately, I am allergic to cats so cannot take any of them in. However, we are trying to feed some of them. They are all very sweet, and as I said before, are some of the prettiest cats I have ever seen - mostley still kittens. Do you have any suggestions about how we should proceed. Since none of them have been nutered, I'm certain they will continue to reproduce. Thank you, Pam Hughes

KAB says: My goodness. If you are looking for a cat or kitten, please look on Petfinder or contact your local shelter or rescue. If you are looking to adopt out a cat or kitten, or need help with spaying/neutering, contact your local shelter or humane society. They will have resources for low cost surgeries. Local vets may be willing to work with you, especially in a trap-neuter-return situation. The Bestfriends organization online also has re-homing resources. Anyone looking to adopt should read all of these posts. Consider your living situation before you adopt an animal that could be a part of your life for 10-20 years. If you don't have a steady job, if you rent, if you think you might move at some point, if you are thinking about having a baby, if you would give up your animal because your boyfriend/girlfriend/husband/wife didn't like it or was allergic, WAIT. Rescues are overwhelmed because people don't bother to spay or neuter their pets, get tired of them, suddenly become allergic to them, or decide to move to a place where pets aren't allowed. Also, this is kitten season, and with global warming, it lasts longer every year. Sometimes re-homing pets is unavoidable (i.e. a death in the family), but MANY of these situations can be avoided. Think and be responsible.

We really don't want to get rid of him, but have to. He is neutered & declawed. His brother died last year so he would do well in a home with another cat, w/out any pets, or with small dogs. He likes children. He does not like babies or big dogs (we have a German Shephard). Thanks to "Jennifer" for giving some good advice here. I will try to post the info. here. Someone told me there is also an organization that takes cats in their homes until a home is found & will not put them to sleep. Anyone know of this. I am in the Phila., PA suburbs so that is where I am looking for this. Thanks!

nola polo says: My Nieghbor is trapping cats and dumping them I witnessed this today. They say it is because there are cats visiting his yard there are several cats in our neighborhood. I too have taken in stray cats and they have become lovable pets and for some reason they (the cats) must have put out the word...come to the Polo's!! I now have a few too many. I have most of them inside. Though several are outdoors. I need to find homes for 3 kittens and 2 adults. They have been indoors since the kittens have been born. I would love to keep them but I do not have the space or the funds to get them all spayed/nuetered. What should I do? I do not want any problems and I have to live here. Though I love my animals and do not want to send them to the animal shelter to be put down. Any suggestions? I live in montebello, california.

Janet M. Gartland says: I lost my 14 year old Himalayan Flame Point Male cat Simba to Cancer Dec 26th. My heart is broken. I have a wonderful 5 yr old Black cat Luigi that I love and a 1 1/2 yr old half-Siamese girl cat. Simba was the King. He was so special to me. He was my friend and closest companion. I tried to make myself and Luigi and Lola feel better by purchasing a Male Flame Point Kitten. I was not good. I am 14 yrs older. The kitten was darling but extremely hyperactive and my two other cats did not like him and they hissed and growled. Luckily the breeder was understanding and took him back and refunded my money. What I think would be much better for all is a grown Himalayan cat, male Flame Point if possible, but a more mature cat with a calm nature. Please email me if you know of anyone in Massachusetts who has a cat to fill our aching hearts. Jan

Cathy says: A stray black female kitten showed up at our house about 15 months ago. It was starving so we fed it and kept it. She's very sweet and got along with our dog just fine. I had never owned a cat and had no idea that a four or five month old kitten could get pregnant, but she did. She had six kittens, but one died. We placed three in homes and kept a brother and sister pair that we just fell in love with. So we have three now: a mom, a daughter, and a son. They're all healthy, spayed/nuetered,feline leukemia free, up to date on shots, kid friendly, sweet,sweet,sweet! They live outside, but use a litter box in the garage. We have four sons that enjoy them, but our youngest is 4 and horribly allergic. He's been sick ever since we got them. I also have a nephew that cannot visit my house because he has had a heart transplant. So, sadly we have to find homes for them. I wish they could stay together, but I would consider splitting them - I guess. Anyway, we are in Somerset, Ky. Please e-mail me at(ladymayne@hotmail.com)if you can help out. We're very sad to see them go, but feel it's what we have to do.

Jennifer Ferguson says: I will try and keep it short. My mother lives in a condominium complex in Ft.Lauderdale where a cat has been living outside for over 10 years. Apparently, the cat belonged to a unit owner that had passed away and unfortunately, the cat was let outside to survive on it's own. She will not allow anyone to hold her, she will rub against you and my mother feeds her everyday. A few months ago a new condo. president was voted in and he is doing everything in his power to trap the cat. He hired a trapping company but the security and some residents would break the traps so they removed it. Do you know of anyone in the Ft.Lauderdale area that can trap this beautiful cat and save its life.

Ones that people have thrown away, strays, or ones where owner can no longer keep because of financial or medical reasons.

This is a friendly cat who greets us at the car when we come home. We have tried to bring her inside, but she is afraid of our Beagle. The neighbor feeds her and she sleeps in a box on our front porch. She would make a great pet for anyone. Please contact us if you would like to have this lovely kitty.

They are great for rodent control but can't be returned to the shopping center they current live. They are in Lake Elsinore, CA. PLEASE HELP!

jmuhj says: It is NOT true that you should 'take your time' like with a prospective boyfriend/girlfriend, when looking to adopt. If you are serious about adopting and you are willing to make a lifetime commitment of love to a cat, you should be able to love ANY cat and will bond "for better or for worse". "Looky-lous" are the bane of shelters and rescues the world over, and indicate that the people want some kind of entertainment or shopping experience rather than to adopt and care for a lifetime for a sentient living being! Please, people -- if you want to window-shop, go to the mall and look at inanimate objects. And if "cute" and "no-problem" is all you want, buy a plush animal. But for those who ARE loving, personally responsible, and ready, able and willing to have the best loving and unconditionally loyal relationship ever, ADOPT A CAT (or CATS)!!!

She is really an affectioned cat and is easy to love and take care of she is about 4 years old I have all of her records for rabie shots and different things spayed etc. Where can I find a good home for this cat? Thank you Shirley

lk says: I read about your kitty having bathroom issues. I hope you feed your kitty a decent food like science diet or better. Also your kitty may need to have its stool checked for worms. If they don't find any, your kitty will definately have to be checked for more serious issues. Beware of cheaper foods,you will pay more in the long run.

Julia Maxwell says: I'm writing to find out if you have any referrals, contacts or resources about someone who is willing to adopt an elderly cat with some health problems. The cat is stilly spry, sweet and loving with shiny eyes and coat - lots of life left in him - but is having digestive problems and the current owner cannot afford to pay for the testing and treatment. The owners have had this cat over 16 years and would love to see if someone could be able to adopt it and provide the treatment it needs. Please send ANY leads to my email. With sincere thanks, Julia
