Cats

Adoption Process

Our primary mission is to facilitate successful adoptions for the cats in our café. That means making sure that you and your feline friend are a great long-term match. We follow The Humane Society’s adoption protocols, which often take up to a week to complete. While the process does require a little patience, we promise the wait will be worth it.

How to Adopt a Cat at Blue Cat Cafe 

1. Browse the cats we house in our cafe and let an employee know you're interested in adopting!

2. Once you've found "the one", fill out an adoption application. 

3 Review information regarding the cat's health and what it takes to adopt a cat!

3. If we are able to do an adoption on the spot (within 1 hour), we will!  If not, we will ask you to make an appointment within 24 hours.  We always try to honor same-day adoptions, but we are sometimes busy with other adoptions and/or meetings.

4. You’ll fill out the remaining paperwork during your adoption appointment and go home with your cat that day! 

5. The cats are healthy to the best of our knowledge, but unforeseen complications may arise after a change of environment. For example, a new home, new food, and/or new siblings can cause changes in health. 99% of the cats that go home have no complications. However, just to be safe, every adopted cat is eligible to receive a free VCA clinic wellness exam during first week after adoption, and a follow-up two weeks after that. A free 30-day trial of health insurance (for visits to other vets) is also available if the adopter signs up within the first week after adoption.  

5. Enjoy your lifetime of unconditional love!
