Adopting a cat

Is it possible that we would ever be approved by a rescue? DH and I are experienced cat owners and have had 'challenging' cats before (one with a degenerative sight condition and a very elderly one). We are currently without a cat as our lovely elderly lady preferred to stay with our lovely elderly neighbours when we moved last year.

We do currently have: a dog and two children, all of whom arrived after the previous cat so she had come to a quiet, adult only house. We also work full time. I don't think that any of this means we couldn't provide a suitable home for the right cat, but a quick look through rescue sites suggests differently.

Are we unlikely to get approved and should we look elsewhere (where? I don't want to support kitten farming or BYB).

Look at smaller rescues. The one I got mine from are fairly flexible as long as the cat is right for you.

We would be happy to home the right cat to you, as long as the dog seems to be ok with cats. With 'dog test' any cat that is going to a home with a dog, basically by introducing them to a dog in the shelter and seeing how they react. Your dog would need to be cat tested in a similar way.

Where are you in the country?

And yes I agree to look at smaller rescues. www.catchat.org is the place to find them.
