You need to find the right adopters for all socialized feral, stray or house cats that are in need of a new home. Matching the right cat with the adopter will ensure that the cat will have a forever home.
Many people fall in love with kittens but forget that they need a lot of attention and also training. A woman contacted me about a kitten that I had up for adoption and I agreed to meet with her and chat. I asked her a few questions and found out that she worked nights and slept during the day. She also preferred peace and quiet and did not have a lot of time to spend with the kitten. She told me she wanted the kitten to curl up in a ball and sleep at the foot of her bed.
Based on the information that the woman provided me I knew she was not suited for a kitten and so I matched her up with an adult Maine Coon cat that was very affectionate, had perfect manners and enjoyed sleeping on the bed during the day. They were well suited and the cat found a forever home. So it is important to chat with all of the adopters by asking them questions.

If the adopter is unable to take care of the cat I always ask them to call me. I will take back the cats and work to place them in another home. This prevents the cat from being put outside to fend on their own or taken to a shelter.
