Adoption Process

If you are interested in adopting a cat from us, this page will explain to you in detail how to go about doing it.

Figure out if the cat you want is up for adoption by checking the Instagram feed and latest blogposts. Read the following write up - Adoption Fees, Adoption Agreement and Adopters' Questionaire below.

Contact Diana at adopt@lovekuchingproject.org with answers to the Adopters' Questionnaire, indicating which cat you are keen on visiting for adoption.

We will then arrange a visit with you at our foster home in Joo Chiat to view the cats. Do note that only screened adopters with satisfactory answers to our Adopters' Questionnaire will be given our address for an adoption visit.

Adopters' Questionnaire

There are requirements in order for a successful adoption to take place, and before we invite you to out cattery in Joo Chiat for a visit with the cats for adoption, we have a number of questions that need answers from you first, as part of our getting to know a little bit more about you, the prospective adopter.We care about who you are because we care about the cats.

Please collate the information below and submit your adoptions questionnaire so we can reach out to you. The questionnaire should take 10 minutes to fill in.

  1. Your age.
  2. Your occupation. Please state also your working hours.
  3. How many other members in the household - friends and family members.
  4. Whether or not the other members in the household are in agreement with the adoption decision. If you live with family members or housemates, they should be present during the adoption visit.
  5. Who the primary caregiver of the cat will be in your household. For instance, who will be in charge of feeding all the meals, clearing the litter, paying for veterinary expenses and pet supplies, bringing the cat to the vet in cases of emergency etc. That person must be present during the adoption visit and should be the one signing the adoption agreement.
  6. Whether you have or had any cats, and other pets. Do share the history of current or previous pets. Please state if your cats are neutered and indoor-only.
  7. Your type of accomodation - flat, apartment, condo, landed.
  8. Is your house cat-safe? This means that all open windows need to be meshed or blocked, and closed windows must remain closed. Photo evidence needs to be shown of meshed windows when you visit our foster home. Also, the cat needs to be a strictly indoor cat.
  9. If you are an overseas expatriate working in Singapore, we need to know concrete plans of what happens to the cat if you should return to your home country or go to other countries to work or study. We also need to know your residency status and length of stay in Singapore.

Adoption Fees

Our Adoption Rates are based on the adoption rates of various local rescue organisations.

Cat

  1. Kitten, local breed = $35
  2. Kitten, pedigree or cross breed = $60
  3. Adult cat, local breed = $30
  4. Adult cat, pedigree or cross breed = $65

Plus $50 max. if the animal received veterinary attention

The reasons why pedigrees' have a higher adoption fee are:

  1. They will need more specialised diets and grooming
  2. There is a higher demand for rarer breeds

We would like to stress again that our adoption fees are in place because of the following reasons:

  1. To prevent the adopter from abandoning the animal in future
  2. To cover part of the boarding costs of animals under our care
  3. To prevent adopters from re-selling the animal and as such,
  4. since mid-2009 we have been collecting adoption fees from new owners.
