Where are the Cats?
All our cats live in our small shelter in Plovdiv, Bulgaria, and travel to Germany and other European countries with a licensed animal transport, after a successful homecheck.
Can I adopt a small kitten?
EU regulations dictate that cats are only allowed to travel at the age of 15 weeks. Depending on when we can arrange for them to travel, they could be 1-2 weeks older, so in any case around 4 months old minimum. At this age they are strictly speaking no longer kittens.
Can I adopt a single cat?
Generally speaking we don’t adopt our cats to be kept as single cats. They all live in large social groups at the shelter and used to the company of others.
Very rarely, there are cats that do not accept other cats due to their personal history, but these are usually older animals.
Can I allow the cat to roam freely outside?
We do not give our cats for adoption to be allowed outside in an unsecured environment.
Our cats were all rescued from the streets – many were injured by cars, dogs or human hands. Beaten, shot, poisoned.
Many had to undergo extensive and costly surgery and then go through a long recovery period.
With this in mind, it just does not make sense to us to expose them to these risks again in another country, as we feel we would be doing them a disservice.
A secured balcony or an escape-proof garden would naturally be absolutely fine.
Do the cats get along with dogs? How about children?
Our cats come mostly from the street or were left behind at the vet, which means that more often than not we do not know their background.
For this reason we cannot guarantee 100% that they will be compatible with dogs and/or children.
Having said that, we do have some adopters with dogs and/or children, and so far it has always gone well.
The prerequisites are of course that the dogs have no hunting instincts and that children are taught how to interact responsibly with the cat.
