Eh wait, since these are stray cats, do I have to pay to adopt?

Well, you don't, if you adopt one of ours. We don't ask either, even though we may spend anywhere from $300 (based on the expenditure of the cat that went out the fastest, Mandy), and up to $1,000 or more (based on the care and expenditure for Betty.) Before you say it, no we do not have money to burn. We be regular salaried minions, who just about make the mark for the privilege to be branded "tax-payer" (a privilege we rather not have to subscribe, aka pay for, you know?) We live in public housing, can't afford cars, and we certainly don't have a lot of spare moola - we haven't even gone out of country for tours in 3 years now. Excluding the human expenses, almost every dollar we earn gets shredded by the cats: home slackers (though they're actually stable and what I'd consider fixed expenses), street gangs, homeseekers. Honestly, to get reimbursed would be a great help, because it means we have that much more allowance to help another cat But the thing is, we start out doing rehoming with the aim of helping these cats, so we're not looking for repayment. Also, where do you draw the line? Look at the case of Betty - we spent over $600 for her initial medical needs, sent her for a full medical check-up with full blood-profile ($300), and spent at least another $300 her foster-care. This excludes her vaccination shots and the transport costs of sending to and from the vet. So we leave it to the adopter. If he/she offers to reimburse us, great. We can go by specific item or a token sum. But the important thing is that the adopter genuinely loves and cares for the cat, and give the moggies proper food and the care they need. So far, only one adopter has offered and did reimburse us for the sterilisation/de-worm/vaccinations of one moggie, and we appreciated her gesture alot. - Check out the purrsNswipes Adoption Guidebook - Meet our homeseekers
