We are so excited that you have decided to adopt a cat or kitten from Tenth Life Cat Rescue! We will do everything possible to find the perfect match for your home.
Here’s the process:
2. Chat with our adoption counselors to find the best kitty for you and learn more.
3. Meet cats of interest
4. Adopt the cat of your dreams!
Adoption fees: $100 for cats older than 6 months and $125 for kittens (6 months or younger). We offer a $50 discount when you adopt two cats of any age at once.
All cats are spayed/neutered, microchipped, current on vaccines, tested for FIV and FeLV, and treated for fleas and parasites. While we make every effort to have cats as healthy as possible prior to adoption, there's always the possibility a cat may come home with something undetected. Please carefully follow our recommendations for integrating a new cat into your home.
Declawing - Tenth Life is 100% against declawing cats.
We recognize that declawing is a very divisive topic and that not everyone will agree with our stance. However, as lovers of cats and advocates for the rights of all animals, we feel that declawing is an inhumane, unnecessary practice that can be painful, harmful, and life-changing for a cat. Please note that all adopters sign a contract stating they will not declaw their Tenth Life cat. We understand that this may cause adopters to go elsewhere for their feline companions, but we ask you to consider your reasons for declawing. There are plenty of ways to deter your cat from scratching in unwanted places. Have kids? Did you know that declawed cats are MUCH more likely to bite, and that bites are considerably more harmful than a scratch? Read our tips here.
Please take some time to read about the detrimental effects declawing can have on cats. More information can be found here. Consider carefully if this is something you really must do to your feline companion.

Kittens in Pairs - Babies six months and younger NEED a buddy – either a second kitten adopted at the same time, or a resident cat. The reason behind this is that kittens get lonely, bored, and destructive, and no one wants that! Having a feline buddy helps diminish unwanted behaviors from kittens who are bored. Additionally, your kitten will grow up to be a happier, better socialized, and more well-adjusted adult cat. We require kittens to be adopted in pairs, or for their new home to have a resident cat already.
- Adopters need to be 21 years of age or older.
- Tenth Life cats are not allowed outdoors.
- Please bring along a photo ID when adopting.
- Your entire family (kids included) should be part of the process!
