Cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
Welcome to Making Biscuits. I started humanely trapping local cats in June 2009. Two of them were pregnant, which I didn't realize. And I was also given a box of 4-day old kittens whose mother hadn't come back for them. Needless to say, I've been deeply launched into my first experience with foster mommyhood. I just want what's best for these guys—good homes, good food and clean water, veterinary care and lots of love and attention. As with all pets, they deserve it. These cats and kittens live with me in my home and in foster homes until they're adopted, however long that takes. They live in very clean environments, they have toys and cat trees, a view of the world outside and they get a lot of love and attention (I've coddled each and every one of them). Please spay and neuter your pets, and thanks for checking us out.
As of June 2010, Making Biscuits is a registered 501c3 organization.
Before you go through the process of filling out the application, there are a few things you should know. If you do not already have a cat/kitten/dog, unless otherwise noted, I prefer my cats/kittens be adopted in pairs. They do better emotionally. After all, cats live in colonies in the outdoors. They groom each other, play, eat and sleep together. Especially if you're gone all day at work. These guys have been raised on premium (that doesn't necessarily mean high-priced) cat food. You will be required (on contract) to feed your new family member(s) one of the foods suggested from the long list provided. I have done a ton of research on manufactured pet foods. More people need to be made aware of the ingredients and they're meanings, and I'm doing my best to make sure that happens and keep these babies from disease and illness in the long run. Proper diet/nutrition is a preventative. Most pet parents only realize that after its too late. You should know too, that I do make home visits to check in on the kitties. It's very important to me that they be adjusting to their new home environment.
If at any time you are unable to continue to care for your pet due to unforeseen circumstances, you MUST call me. Either I will take them back, or we'll discuss making arrangements for someone else to foster them until they can be properly rehomed. I feel that I am responsible for each and every one of my kitties for the rest of their lives. That could mean 15 years from now I'll still figure out a way to help you and them. If they need a new home, I can make sure they find a new one safely through the adoption process. It's important that I always keep track of where they are and in who's care. I am always available for questions or concerns on any subject regarding my adopted kitties whether it be food choices, vet choices, kitty goes missing (there are things to be done immediately and I can provide you with all that information as well as helping with a search), health questions, where to find boarding or petsitter, etc. No matter the circumstances: for example if you have a balcony and kitty has fallen off and disappeared, CALL ME. I not only want to know what's going on, I am more than willing to help however I can. For this reason, I do kindly ask that adopters occasionally send a quick email or post a pic now and then to stay in touch. I sleep better that way because it helps me know I've made the right choice in you, for them!
I reserve the right to refuse adoption to anyone. Please be aware that I'm looking for people who meet certain criteria only for the kittens/cats well-being. I truly just want what's best for them, as I've worked hard to make sure they are healthy, loved, mentally stimulated, clean and well-fed up to the point of their adoption. They deserve the best. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me.
Adoption is $120. Two cats/kittens $180. This is all non-profit. The cost of adoption comes nowhere near the amount it cost to raise these babies. It includes spaying/neutering, defleaing, deworming, testing for FIV/Felv, microchipping and vaccinations.
Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a cat or kitten versus getting cats for sale or kittens for sale from a cat breeder? When someone is breeding kittens, they are creating new cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of cat or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a cat for sale from a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a cat or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
