SWALE CATS PROTECTION ADOPTION QUESTIONNAIRE
If you would like to adopt a cat or kitten from our branch, it would help us better find the right
match for you if you can complete this questionnaire as much as possible & email it back to me on
email@example.com. Please note that this form is NOT designed as a means of
eliminating unsuitable owners! Just because you live on a busy road, have young children or have
no garden doesn't mean that we will turn you down: simply that we will offer you one of our cat/s
who is happy to live in such environments. Swale’s CP Rehoming Officer aims to follow up all
enquires within a day or two, so if you haven’t heard from us then please do give us a ring.. Emails
do sometimes end up in our spam box.
Name, address & contact telephone number. Please give a landline number along with a mobile as it’s very
expensive for us to always ring mobiles. Please do give an email address as we will need this (as well as
postcode) to complete microchip registration form, should you go on to adopt a cat from us

Where did you hear about our branch?
Website, CP, Catchat, Vets, friend,
Please be aware that if you do adopt rescue kittens that are not old enough to be neutered, then it is part of
our rehoming policy that you agree to get the cat neutered at the appropriate age. Neutering is the keystone
of rescue as there are too many cats that end up not wanted and as strays. Please also bare in mind the
financial implications of taking on a cat or kitten or any animal) vets bills, cattery fees, insurance, neutering,
vaccinations, to name but a few are expensive.
POTENTIAL NEW HOMES FOR CATS WILL BE HOMECHECKED. PLEASE CHECK OUT
OUR WEBSITE www.swale.cats.org.uk & take some time to read the rehoming
information There is now an adoption fee of £50 for adopting a cat or kitten from
us, but please bear in mind that we have done our best to give them a good start
in life, all our cats are rehomed with 4 weeks free insurance, we routinely
vaccinate and microchip. All cats that are old enough are neutered. This amounts
to around £80.00 per cat and therefore without finances we just would not be able
to continue to do this or help other more poorly cats that require more costly
veterinary treatment. Therefore your donation will go straight to helping other
less fortunate puss cats!
Thank you very much!
