Please provide the name, phone number, and email of 2 references:

•I understand that I cannot permit euthanasia of the adopted cat without direct communication with a Director of Kitty Cat P.A.L. Society so to give them the right to transfer the cat back into the custody of the Society, unless the cat is in critical distress from acute bodily trauma, or suffering from end of life disease;

•I understand that it is imperative that the health record information included on the Adoption Brochure be entered into my veterinarian’s records of the adopted cat;

•I understand that it is my responsibility to contact the veterinarian who spayed or neutered and tattooed the adopted cat to change the owner contact information, and at this time I may ask if there is other medical information attached to this cat’s records that should be transferred to my vet (if so, Kitty Cat P.A.L. Society will need to authorize the transfer.)

•I understand that the adoption fee includes the cost of spay or neuter of the adopted cat, and that if my adopted cat is intact, the spay or neuter surgery must be performed prior to the age of 6 months by one of the veterinarians listed. Kitty Cat P.A.L. Society will not pay for microchips, vaccines, medication or any other treatments requested. In order to receive the spay or neuter FREE of charge, the Adoption Brochure with the Spay/Neuter Certificate must be presented to the veterinarian.

•I understand that I cannot have the adopted cat declawed, or used for medical or veterinary experimentation, or permit it to be used for breeding purposes.

•I will not hold Kitty Cat P.A.L. Society responsible for any present or future illness, or any medical costs pertaining to, the adopted cat.

•I understand that the health of the adopted cat is not guaranteed and that it is my responsibility to arrange a veterinary exam at my veterinarian clinic at my cost within seven days of adoption and that if these results show illness, I have the option to return the adopted cat into the custody of the Society for a full refund of the adoption fee. (Some of the veterinarians listed with Kitty Cat P.A.L. Society may offer a free vet exam upon adoption.)

•I will incorporate the adopted cat into my lifestyle and keep it through any moves, vacations and life changes that will undoubtedly occur, always providing humane treatment and care and ensure that the physical and emotional needs of the adopted cat are met. This includes cat sitting if necessary, healthy food, clean water, shelter, sanitary litter box conditions, regular grooming, proper veterinary health care, love, exercise and socializing opportunities for the span of its natural life, which is estimated at 12 to 20 years.

•I understand that Kitty Cat P.A.L. Society recommends the adopted cat live indoors. Should I choose to allow access to the outdoors, I will not do so until after 4 weeks of arrival to its new home and after it reaches adulthood.

•I understand that I must contact Kitty Cat P.A.L. Society to give them the right to take the adopted cat back into the custody of the Society if I am ever unable to keep the adopted cat, and that adoption fee will not be refunded.

•I hereby give Kitty Cat P.A.L. Society permission to do follow up checks on the well-being of the adopted cat and that should the cat appear to be in unsatisfactory condition, I agree to immediately release the cat into the custody of the Society without refund.

I have read and understood the Adoption Terms & Conditions & fully accept the responsibilities as detailed by Kitty Cat PALs.
