Preparing to bring home a cat

Once you’ve decided that you’d like to adopt, there are a few first steps you’ll want to take.

Research: It’s very important to take the time to research what kind of pet is right for you, your home and your lifestyle – both now and in the future.

Get acquainted: Visit HSC’s 2700 Toomey Avenue main shelter and HSC’s Petco Adoption Center in Huntersville to meet all of our adorable kittens and cats, and plan to spend lots of quality time interacting with the cat you’d like to adopt. Many times an animal’s behavior is different when away from other animals or in a kennel. The animal displaying bad manners or not paying attention may just be scared and lonely!

Know your responsibilities: Plan for and commit to being a responsible cat owner, including:

  • Dedicating the necessary time and effort on caring for and loving your cat.
  • Understanding the financial commitment involved.
  • Providing the necessary medical care and exercise for your cat.
  • Training to ensure good behavior and manners.
