Just over a year after my cat passed and I am finally ready and in a position to adopt another. My partner and I have just moved in together in a rented house which allows for cats. After months of looking, we have found a cat that seemed perfect for us from the RSPCA. We applied and just been told that they would like to take our application forward. I am so excited she is an indoor cat - we didn't have a preference either way rescued from a hoarding situation. However, when I got my cat he was from a friend whose cat 'accidentally' had kittens (how its an accident I don't know), so I have never been through the adoption process with the RSPCA. I know basically, it's about proving your home is safe and appropriate for a cat, but what sort of things do they look out for as warning signs? Besides wires, broken glass, piles of rubbish other obvious safety issues? Should we go out a buy things like a litter tray, bowls, window screens beforehand? I don't really want to just in case we get denied. But when my parents adopted through the RSPCA the home checker asked where the litter tray and bowls were. I also have a few houseplants, most are pet safe as I have had cats and my previous live-in landlords had dogs but should I get rid of all not pet-safe ones beforehand? I have a friend whos taking any if we get approved but again I don't want to get rid of stuff/buy loads of things and then get rejected. But also don't want to get rejected because we didn't buy stuff or get rid of everything beforehand. I know I am most likely overthinking it but this is the first application in months that's actually gone anywhere and we've not received 'there were so many applicants and unfortunately someone applied sooner or is a better fit or owns their home or lives further from the main road etc'. And she is also incredibly cute.
