Why neither of my cats are from the RSPCA

cat, rspca

I originally wasn’t going to get a pet cat at all. I was in fact going to foster cats. I applied to the RSPCA and they did a home visit, but our home was not good enough. Animals are meant to go to homes to experience what it’s like to live with a family, yet we were rejected for the fact we didn’t have a spare room, such as a spare bedroom! Surely to teach an animal what it’s like to live with a family, they aren’t going to be locked in a room alone.

We changed tactics and were going to get a kitten from them instead, so once again another home check. We were told we could have an older cat but not a kitten as we live ‘near a main road,’ when most houses are near a main road!

Needless to say, we now have Bluey and Bo from private sellers.

  1. It’s important to know that there are many other shelters out there apart from the RSPCA 🙂
    It’s disappointing to know how picky they were being when thousands of cats need a home, surely they should be judging the potential owners on what type of people they are instead.

    1. I agree! I’m qualified to work with animals and everything, so I thought they would have taken that into consideration. I wouldn’t even bother trying to get a pet from there again. I don’t know of any other animal shelters near me which is why that was the only option I took. I’ve just found out that you can adopt animals from abroad and that’s what I would love to do next time!
