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.
