Which cat do I choose?
We recommend letting the cat choose you! Some people come to us with a list of characteristics they want in a new cat (short hair, not too old, male, etc.) and end up falling in love with someone unexpected. The most important thing to consider is the cat’s personality and the potential of compatibility for your lifestyle. Does it get along with other cats? With dogs? Is it alright being alone during the day or does it always need company? Is it a lap cat or more independent? We are familiar with our cats’ personalities and can guide you to a good match. Decide on what personality traits matter most to you but keep an open mind.
What happens after I apply?
If you decide you would like to adopt one of our cats and your application is approved, we will reserve them for you, but we generally do not send them home with you that day (exceptions may be made by sending in an application and speaking to an adoption counselor prior to your visit). We want to give you some time to think about it – it is a big commitment! You can generally pick up your kitty the following day or arrange for another day that would be convenient for you and gives us enough time to complete any requirements. When you pick up your cat you will be asked to fill out an adoption contract and pay the adoption fee.
How much does it cost?
Adoption fees: Kittens six months and younger – $100. Two kittens – $150. Adult cats – $75. Senior cats (7 and older) – $45.
All of our cats are spayed or neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. We test for FIV and feline leukemia.
We work diligently to place our cats and kittens in forever homes that stay forever homes. However, every cat adopted from Heaven on Earth comes with our lifetime promise. If for any reason, you can no longer care for your cat, he or she is always welcome to come back to Perry’s Place. We are committed to helping our adopted cats throughout their lifetime and understand that circumstances sometimes change.
We do reserve the right to refuse the adoption. If your application is not approved, we will do our best to explain the reason(s). It is important to remember that a denial is not a rejection of you as a person; it is a refusal to place a cat in a situation that we do not feel is a good match or does not meet our policies.
Thank you so much for your interest in adopting one of our cats. We look forward to meeting you!
