You can read a bit about us in the newbies intro section but i will tell you a bit more later but firstly ill tell you what we can offer to a pussycat xx
.... Im Jo and kitty mad daughter is Willow
A bit about where you live
. ... I live in South Birmingham. although i live in a town I am fortunate to be one street away from a farm and fieldsmy house is a large 3 story with an enclosed backgarden.
Are you near any roads, railways...
I live on the end of a row of 3 houses which are built in a circle. although it is mainly quiet unless morning school drop it is unfortunately a route for the local bus which runs 3 times an hour in daytime
Family circumstances. Do you have children and if so what ages?
I have 5 children...eldest is Willow aged16 and will be dual carer of any new kitty, son aged 14, daughter aged 6 , Son aged 5 , duaghter who will be 3 in May.
A bit about your working day pattern
.. i drop children to and from school, maybe do a bit of light shopping then return home to care for youngest child who will start school in september. I work partime as a fashion blogger for an online department store so I am in a lot ie most days as work at home.
If you currently have any other animals.
3 lovebirds, one cockatiel and a fish. all are safely housed and never left to fly unattended as have supervised flight only due to size of house, small children etc.
Do you have a garden? Is it enclosed or easily assessible.
I do have a fenced in garden , it is however in the process of being fully renovated as had lots of bushes..unfortunately my stepdad did job in dec but left a pile of junk in middle of garden which will be removed as soon as it grows slightly milder and i get a skip
Do you have a catflap installed
?..no but i can get one .
Have you had cats before
? ..no...only as a child but not as an adult.
What kind of cat/s you are looking to adopt
.... Ideally it would be a small Kitten to grow up in our family so we can share the needs of a younger Kitty into full adulthood . I am however open to having an older Kitten that has been neutered and doesnt have problems spraying if a boy cat or again a girl that is definately not pregnant ( will detail my kitty search disasters later
) I dony mind an older cat but the main focus for me is that the cat is not agressive at all, can handle the size of my family as obviously the smaller children will be hoping for a cuddle too off pussycat. I would hope for an older cat that it doesnt have any problems with weeing or pooing in house either on a daily basis.
to cap it off-ideal cat is furry, likes to be groomed, loves cuddles and to play and has no naughty biting habits.
If you are looking for something specific such as a pedigree
... I cannot lie and say i dont go all daft when i see a pic of a persian or ragdoll as they look so sweet but daughter just wants a kitty to share her love with and cuddle so it definately doesnt have to be a specific breed.
Whether you are willing to consider a senior puss
? I would love to adopt an older lady or gent but worry if the cat could cope with the sheer noise volume from my 5 children.
Area you are willing to travel to adopt a cat...i am without a car at present unfortunately so would need help in getting cat if a long distance. Im relient on public transport which is limiting for me.
Have you been homchecked and if not whether you would be willing too...no but willing to be checked.
Extra info is especially important if you would like to give a loving home to - a FIV or FeLV+, very old or very young, feral, a cat with medical needs etc.
I wouldnt mind looking after a very young kitten if i was asked- i have experience of hand feeding puppies before after rejected by their mom. i dont know much about the cat illnesses except that they cant mix with other cats and must be kept as an indoors cat. again this is something i would consider but feel my lack of experience may limit my ability here.
