Welcome to the Platypus Protected Adoption Center!
Ready to find your cute cat or kitten and bring them home? We at Platypus Protected are
certainly ready to help you realize that goal. We, like all rescue shelters, have an adoption
policy. We recommend reading the 'Adoption Downloads' forms to get familiar with these
All cats and kittens that come to Platypus Protected are given a check-up by our vet, any
and all vaccinations that are needed or required and all are either spayed or neutered.
The health and well-being of each cat or kitten is very important to us. We do this so that
when they are adopted, each has the best start we can give them to having a long and
healthy life with their new family.
Many of the cats we have with us started out as ferrel cats, but more and more we are
getting cats that have been abandoned by their owners. Regardless of their start, we
provide the best care we can give them and provide all the love and compassion we
can and are rewarded with cats that give much more than they receive. We spend as
much time as we can with each cat. Giving them the attention, interaction and petting
that they require from us.
We feed these cats and kittens very well. They are given the best foods we can supply
for them, but we do not use cheap foods! What we feed them are all natural foods that
have no dies, artificial colors or flavors added. In fact, there are no artificial addatives or
chemicals in any of the foods we use. We furnish a list of the foods we use with each
adoption so the new family can keep their diet consistant and, more importantly, they
really love the foods!
The cats we rescue are never caged, except for medical reasons. Each cat is allowed
access to all of our home and we have yet to have any major problems aside from the
normal things that occurr when cats play. And play they do! It's important for the cats to
be able to run, play or sleep where they feel comfortable and safe. Each cat has found
it's 'safe' place in the house and when they are in that 'safe' place, we respect that.
Our goal is that when each cat is adopted, they are ready to be a member of their new
found family and will respond in kind to the love they receive.
