Adoption process

Cats & kittens are posted below and on Petfinder once they​ are ready for adoption. If a cat or kitten is not posted on Petfinder, it may be on hold for another applicant, too young for adoption, undergoing medical treatment, or being socialized. We do not accept applications for cats or kittens that are not posted on Petfinder or our website (below).

​Cats are not adopted out on a first-come, first-serve basis. Instead, we focus on the best fit for each individual cat and their adoptive families. This process is intended to ensure a long-term successful adoption for both the adopter(s) and the cat/kitten(s).

All interested individuals MUST complete an application to be considered for adoption.  Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, however it is strongly encouraged to only submit an application once you are interested in a specific cat(s) that we have advertised as adoptable. 

We are a foster-based rescue, so all of our cats & kittens reside in foster homes throughout the South Shore of MA, mainly the Hingham, Hull, Weymouth, Cohasset, Hanover, and Rockland areas. Meet and greets are by appointment only and can only be scheduled once we've received your adoption application. Questions? Email us!

adoptable cats

All available cats are posted below and on our Petfinder page once they are ready for adoption. If a cat (or pair) that you're interested in is removed from Petfinder, then it is unavailable. Please note that preference will always be given to applicants looking to adopt a pair of kittens, rather than just one kitten.

 Considerations & Resources

Consider the following factors when looking for a cat(s) to adopt:
  • Lifestyle Compatibility: Consider your lifestyle and the cat's needs. Match energy levels, space requirements, and time availability for care and attention.

  • Personality Match: Look for a cat whose temperament aligns with your preferences and household dynamics. Consider factors like sociability, activity level, and compatibility with other pets.

  • Health and Special Needs: Assess the cat's health condition, any special needs or medical requirements, and ensure you can provide necessary care and support.

  • Long-Term Commitment: Adoption is a lifelong commitment. Consider the cat's lifespan, potential changes in your life, and ensure you're ready for the responsibilities and joys of pet ownership for years to come.

Kitten Adoptions:

Please note that we prioritize the adoption of kittens in pairs, or to homes that already have another cat. Kittens benefit from companionship by learning from each other and focusing their play aggression, leading to better behavior and socialization. Having a buddy keeps them entertained, active, and out of trouble, making for a happier home environment. Additionally, pairs of kittens are easier to introduce into homes because they provide comfort to each other, making the transition to a new environment smoother. Choosing to adopt two kittens ensures a bonded pair and fosters harmony in the household, while adopting just one should ideally be done in homes with existing playful cats to provide companionship.
