All Cats' Cradle kitties are in foster homes, they have been spayed or neutered, de-wormed and are up-to-date on their vaccinations. They are litter box trained and indoor only kitties.

We have a 30 day refund or exchange policy for those situations where the kitty does not bond with the family or resident animal.
