We adopted our cat Martha from ARC just over a year ago, and it was totally positive experience. Everybody was helpful and she was being well taken care of by her foster carer. As we didn’t have direct outdoor access at the time, we were advised to get an indoors-y, more timid cat – which we did, not wanting to cruelly coop up an adventurous spirit. Martha spent most of the first month with us hiding under the bed, but now is much more happy and confident. She loves having her tummy stroked, has become very chatty, and goes outside for a bit most days but is usually quite happy indoors. I would recommend ARC to anyone looking to adopt.
