Please include everyone who lives in your home, including roommates, etc.

Do you rent or own? If you rent please be prepared to show proof cats are allowed. * Do you anticipate moving within the next year? * Please describe what the adult(s) in the household do (work from home full- or part-time, work outside the home full- or part-time, full- or part-time student, stay at home parent, etc.). *
If any of these roles are likely to change in the coming year please elaborate on that.
Please list your other current companion animals (name, type, and age) * Are/were all of your companion animals spayed/neutered? If not, please explain why not. * Are/were all of your companion animals up-to-date on vaccinations? If not, please explain why not. * Please list your previous companion animals during your life and their ages when they passed. * Have you ever had a pet go missing?

If you do not have one, which one are you planning to use? * Have you ever had to surrender/give up/re-home a companion animal?

If so how will the cat be looked after while you are gone? * What is your plan for the cat should something happen to you and you are no longer able to care for it? *
All pet owners should have a plan for their pets, no matter their age. This becomes more and more important as we get older, however.
Do all of your windows have screens? *
Screens should be well-fit and without holes. Cats can still push a screen out and open windows should be monitored.
Do you have any doggie doors? *
If you do we will need to see that the door is closed and not accessible by a cat/kitten.
Do you have any house plants? *
Some plants are toxic to cats and cat owners need to know what is safe to have inside.
Is there anything else you would like to tell us? I will not declaw the cat. *
Declawing is a barbaric and inhumane process. Cats need their claws and there are ways to help them scratch appropriately.
I will keep the cat as an indoor cat. *
Cats live safer, longer, happier lives when not allowed to roam outside. They avoid wounds due to fights, fleas, tapeworms, and death by predators, cars, and humans with ill-intent.
I will provide regular medical check-ups and care. *
Yearly vet check-ups are an important part of cat ownership. Your vet will be able to advise you on the best care for your cat, including vaccinations.
I will return the cat to Cassie's Cats if I am unable to keep it or properly care for it. *
We require that adopters come to us if they are ever in a position where they are no longer able to care for their cat and do not have a trusted family member or friend who can give the cat a lifetime of safe and quality care.
