Ask anybody who has ever adopted a pet, and they'll swear to you that the bond they have with their rescued animal is as deep as they come. When you open your heart and home to an adopted cat who needs help, that cat will show appreciation for the rest of his/her life! Cats who have been uprooted from their homes or have had a difficult start at life are likely to bond deeply and be completely loyal to their new human caretakers. After all, when you adopt you become their hero! This is true no matter the breed of mix of the cat. So no matter what circumstances brought a kitten or cat to be homeless, Maine Coon cats and kittens for adoption are still loving and lovely pets, extremely affectionate and attentive, making wonderful companions.

1. Tips for Day One with Your New Cat / Kitten - There’s lots you can do in the first 24 hours to ease your new kitten / cat into your home. When you arrive, select a quiet, closed-in area such as your bedroom or a small room away from the main foot traffic, and set it up with a litter box, bed, food and water. If you are adopting an adult cat, be sure that this “starter room” has very secure screens, or keep the windows securely closed. If possible, make the starter room the permanent location of the litter box. If you plan on having the permanent location of the litter box be elsewhere, you’ll need two litter boxes. Please do consider the advantages of keeping your new cat indoors always — outdoor cats are exposed to disease, cat fights, being killed by cats and other wild animals, and hit by cars. If you have other pets, don’t introduce the new pet immediately. Let your new cat get to know and trust household members, before it must adjust to the entire home. For more on each of these tips visit our blog 3. How to Prepare Financially In Order to Take Care of a New Cat - Being a good caring cat owner involves many things that don’t affect your wallet, like your time and love, but there are definitely some costs involved! While you’re searching cats for adoption, consider the likely costs that come with caring for different types of cats. When adopting there will usually be an adoption fee. Rescuing cats is expensive work! The rescuer often pays to have the cats spayed or neutered if they aren’t already, provides vaccines, and pays for all medical care needed while the pets are in their rescue. Food, beds, collars, tags, grooming, it adds up, but luckily much of that cost is not passed on. Typical cats for adoption will have a fee ranging from $100 to $300. Next consider you basic supplies such as a collar, IDs, microchip, pet bed, bowls, and toys. The biggest cost will be food, that depends on the size and type of cat you will be adopting. Asking the shelter what they are feeding the cat and the cost can help prepare for this. Other costs are mostly medical and will include regular vet checkups, and the potential for a trip to the vest because of an accident, or illness.
