Adopting a TinyKitten
Thank mew so much for wanting to adopt rescue cats and kittens! Check our Facebook page often for updates.
Unless they were born to a feral mama in our care, almost all of our rescues were born feral (in the wild, without human interaction). Some have special medical or socialization needs. Get to know them on our livestreams or send us an email if you'd like more information about a specific cat.
We strongly prioritize applications for pairs of cats/kittens, so please consider whether you would be willing to keep one of our bonded pairs together!
Please read this whole page before applying to make sure you know what you're getting into when you adopt a TinyKitten. :)
If you're not sure what life is like with a cat or kitten that was born feral, check out just a few formerly feral TinyKittens graduates:
- Consider whether you are able to take two kittens. Priority is given to applicants wishing to adopt more than one, since our kittens are typically quite bonded to each other.
- It is always helpful to include a cover letter introducing yourself and why you're applying for a tinykitten. It helps us get a better sense of which kitten(s) might be the best match, or if your preferred kittens would be the right fit. If you're applying for a cat or kitten with special needs or a feral cat, let us know if you know what that entails and are prepared to provide care as needed.
- It is my hope that adopters will become ambassadors and champions for animal rescue, and will use their kittens' celebrity to raise awareness about spaying/neutering, and to highlight how every life has value and is worthy of unconditional love. Creating a Facebook page is the perfect way to do that, and is strongly encouraged. Here are some great examples - people post as often or as occasionally as they wish, although frequent posts during the first few weeks after adoption are appreciated:
- Make sure you indicate whether you are interested in specific kittens/mama, or if you are flexible.
- Because of their time on the kittencam, our tinykittens are loved by thousands of fans around the world. Please consider whether you are prepared for everything that entails. Having a celebrity kitten in the family can be a delightful experience, but it isn't for everyone. Send me an email if you have any questions or concerns. :)
How are applicants matched with kittens?
We will review all applications the week of their spay/neuters and choose the best applicants for each kitten(s). Each successful applicant will be contacted a few days prior to spay/neuter day to let them know they have been matched.
Because we are volunteer run and are perpetually working overtime, we aren't always able to notify applicants that weren't matched with a kitten. We try our best, but if you don't hear from us you're very welcome to email us to check on the status or ask why you weren't matched.
We often receive more than one exceptional application for a particular kitten or pair of kittens. In that case, we will randomly choose one to be matched.
Very Common Questions:
We are located in Fort Langley, BC (just south of Vancouver). Out-of-province adoptions are considered, if it would result in an exceptional home for the cat or kitten. The one non-negotiable is that we must meet you in person. In most cases, this means you will come here in person to pick up your kitten(s). Suitable travel arrangements for the return trip are required. We do not allow kittens to be shipped in cargo holds, but you are welcome to drive or fly with them in the cabin with you.
It may be possible for us to personally deliver your kitten(s) to you, provided suitable arrangements can be made. You would be responsible for airfare, travel expenses and a delivery fee to cover the cost of hiring someone to care for the cats while we are gone.
Adoption fees are $200 per cat or kitten, which includes their first vaccines, deworming, flea treatment, ear tattoo, spay or neuter and more.
