Instructions to cat enquiries

Please read the instructions to cat enquiries before contacting.

Cats adopted from Dewi are sterilised, microchipped, dewormed, vaccinated and examined by a vet. The microchips are registered at Turvasiru.fi. Cats over the age of 6 months have also been tested for FIV/FeLV (feline immunodeficiency virus/ feline leukemia virus). Kittens are not to be adopted as an only cat.

The fee for one cat is 150e. Two cats are 250e in total.

It’s a good idea to read the introduction text written about the cat properly before contacting Dewi, but you can always ask some more questions too. There are multiple people answering the enquiries at the moment, so if you are interested in one cat in particular, please contact the person listed in that cat’s introduction text.

Dewi’s cats are in home care in our foster homes. All the cats in the foster homes are not listed on our website.

If there are no cats you’re interested in on Dewi’s website at the moment, you can wait for one to come up or contact Dewi. General enquiries are answered by Mira (050 599 4697 / varapj [a] dewi. info). Kittens don’t usually appear on the website.

It’s a good idea to stop and think whether the cat you’re interested in meets your expectations. Can you commit to continue socialising a shy cat? Some cats have special needs and might need a specific kind of diet or regular dental check-ups to ensure they stay healthy. This takes commitment from the new owner.

The most important thing is that the cat gets the best possible permanent home that will suit its needs. We try to ensure this by interviewing the home candidates and by organizing a meeting, where the candidate gets to know the cat in the foster home.

If you contact us by email please let us know:

-why are you interested in offering a home to this particular cat / to a Dewi cat

-who would the cat be living with (children, cats, other pets)

-what kind of space would the cat have (are you able to isolate the cat, do you have an enclosure outside or a glazed balcony)

-what kind of experience do you have with cats

-if you’re not interested in a specific cat, tell us what kind of cat/cats you had in mind (kittens are only adopted in pairs or to homes that already have a cat) .

Keep in mind that our members work for Dewi as volunteers during their own free time and can’t therefore always answer the phone. If no one is picking up, please call again later! We do not answer unknown numbers or callbacks!
