All about cats

What is a service cat

There are several different, but equally valid, definitions for ‘cat’. One of the most common is that a service cat is a pet that is ‘given’ to a person or group of people by their carer or family, rather than being adopted from a pound or a shelter.

In the UK, there are many organisations that provide ‘service’ cats. The most well-known is The Blue Cross, who provide cats to people who are unable to care for them themselves. The Blue Cross provides a service to people who are either terminally ill, or have severe disabilities that make it impossible for them to be able to care for a cat.

The Blue Cross also provides a service to people who may be allergic to cats, or who simply cannot cope with the idea of owning a cat.

Service cats are also provided by other organisations that provide a similar service. For example, Battersea Cats and Dogs Home provides service cats to people who have a disability or condition that prevents them from being able to care for a cat.

Service cats are also provided by charities, such as The Cat Protection Society, and other similar organisations.

Why do I need a service cat?

Service cats provide an alternative form of companionship, and help to improve the quality of life for their owners.

Service cats can also provide companionship for people who are unable to take on the responsibility of owning a cat, such as carers and disabled people.

How can I get a service cat?

If you are interested in getting a service cat, you should find out as much as possible about the organisation that provides the service. You should also make sure that you are able to cope with the responsibility of looking after the cat, and that you can provide the cat with a good home.

Other factors that you should consider include whether you want a cat that is fixed or not, and whether you want a cat that is an existing cat, or a cat that is a rescue.

If you are interested in getting a service cat, you can either complete an application form to the organisation that provides the service, or you can ask them directly for assistance.

How does a service cat work?

Service cats are provided to people who are unable to care for them themselves. The organisation that provides the service will usually meet the cat on a regular basis, and will provide a suitable home for the cat.

The cat will usually be neutered, vaccinated and microchipped, and will be given a suitable name and a collar and tag.

How much does a service cat cost?

The cost of a service cat is usually dependent on the organisation that provides the service. In general though, a service cat will cost less than a standard cat.
