Book Your Visit

Find the purrfect kitty

2. Connect with one (or more) of our friendly cats

3. Send in your adoption application

4. Bring home the purrfect cat for you

You want to find the cat that's the best match for you...

In order to do that, you need to spend real, quality time with them.

The problem is most shelters keep cats in cages

Which makes it so it's difficult to find out their true personality.

This mean many cats are chosen (or overlooked) based only on appearances.

That's why we've created a warm and relaxing space for you to find your purrfect kitty.

So you can stop feeling uncertain about which cat to choose...

And instead feel confident that you made the right choice after you bond with one of our cats!

The adoption process

It's important not to rush the adoption process so that you and the cat are both ready for the new transition.

The adoption process is no longer first come-first-serve. Our process involves reviewing multiple applications for each cat over a period of time, to match the cat to the right family. 

When cats arrive at Catoro they will have a settling in period, where we get to know their personality so we can find them the right home.

View Current Cats

Our cats are divided into different categories based on how long they have been at Catoro. 

This lets the cats properly settle in, be socialised, and develop their personalities.


This cat recently arrived and is settling in. We're working on socialization, rehabilitation, and learning their unique needs. Not yet available for adoption.


This kitty is looking for a home and accepting adoption applications. Any applications sent in early will now be reviewed.


A potential adopter has been selected, and applications will close. Interviews and any extra meet & greets will be done. There is a small chance the adoption could fall through.

How to Adopt (Step-by-Step)

From when you first meet the cat until adoption day can take anywhere from 2-6 weeks.

Here's your guide to the process!

1. Meet our cats in the Cat Forest

It's mandatory to meet the cat you're interested in before submitting an adoption application.

Choosing a cat based only on their looks means the cat or their new family might not be happy. Every cat deserves to be adopted into a home that fits their unique personality and needs.

On your visit, let our hosts know you're interested in adopting. They can provide information about the cats, their personalities, preferences and habits, and tell you which are currently 'Available to Adopt'.

2. Fill in the application on this page

When you know which cat/s you want to apply for, read this entire page and then fill in the application linked below.

You can fill out a general application, or one for specific cat(s).

3. Your application is acknowledged and a review timeframe provided

When an application is submitted, it will be acknowledged within 24 hours, and we will let you know when it will be reviewed.

Please note: if the cat is still a 'New Arrival' or 'Settling In', your application will not be reviewed immediately. All applications are reviewed at the same time, when the cat is moved to the 'Available to Adopt' category.

We appreciate your patience as we try to find the perfect match for every cat!

4. If your application is accepted, you will be contacted for an interview

You will be contacted to schedule an adoption interview either online via video call or in person at Catoro.

5. If your interview is successful your adoption will be approved!

Exciting news! You can now pay the adoption fee and sign any relevant paperwork.

Make sure to prepare for your new furry family member and get everything they need.

Cat Supplies Checklist

6. Bring your new cat home!

Adoption pick-ups will now take place during a designated “Catoro adoption day”, set on certain days each month.

Kittens are exempt and can be picked up on any agreed date.
