If you are considering taking in a rehomed cat it is important that you understand exactly what you’re getting into. Ask a lot of questions to make sure the cat will be a good fit for you and your family. What does the cat like to do? Is it good with other household pets? Is it affectionate or more aloof? Are there any medical problems or behavior problems that you should be aware of? Find out as much as you can about the cat and find out why the current owner is rehoming the cat. Ask for the cat’s veterinary records.
