Why Cat Tales?
Cat Tales is a all-volunteer, 501(c)3 non-profit, no-kill rescue organization working to provide care and placement of cats and kittens who are found and surrendered to us. We have no “storefront,” but show our cats locally in Warminster. If you would like to help, we are always looking for enthusiastic volunteers and supporting donations.
Why adopt from Cat Tales?
Some may say, “Why should I adopt from Cat Tales when I can get a cat from someone else free?” At Cat Tales, we make a great effort to have healthy cats available for adoption. While there are never guarantees for any living creatures, we work diligently with our veterinarians to provide a comprehensive level of medical attention to all cats before adoption.
The typical kitten receives the following:
- A physical examination by a veterinarian
- A blood test for Feline Leukemia (FeLV) and Feline Aids (FIV)
- Two distemper vaccines (at 6- and 9-weeks of age) and often a third vaccine in the series at 12 weeks;
- Rabies vaccination
- A fecal exam, to check for internal parasites. This will typically show the cat has worms and an appropriate dewormer is given
- Spaying or neutering, as required by Pennsylvania state law. If the kitten is adopted before he or she is old enough for the surgery, the surgery is done later at one of the veterinary hospitals we work with and Cat Tales pays for the surgery.
The retail price of these services can run $400-$600 with many veterinarians. No kitten, properly cared for, is ever “free.”
