Everything about cats

I'm looking for a cat

Great that you are looking for a new four-legged mate! Our cats can’t wait to meet you! Check out their profiles and make an appointment for a first date! Unfortunately, due to Covid-19, we can not schedule as many appointments as we like. This means that the waiting time to come by is longer than usual. Please keep in mind that at the moment only two people from the same family are alowed. We do our best to help you find a new buddy within the guidelines and limitations that exist. Would you like to make an appointment? Please mail to katten@doamsterdam.nl

Did you know...that after bringing your cat home for the first time it’s best to expand your his or her new domain gradually, room by room?

Have fun playing with your cat!

Did you know that three-quarters of Amsterdam’s indoor cats are bored? So much so sometimes that it can make them lethargic and even sick. A cat that isn’t allowed to hunt (enough) has to be stimulated through other means. Otherwise, that boredom will rise to the surface and result in a lot of mischief. If cats have nothing to do, they will make their own fun, like hanging from the curtains, for example!

A cat that gets to go out regularly will have few worries about a lack of stimulation. He or she will see, hear and smell plenty of new things. A cat that spends all day inside, on the other hand, will need other distractions. And you can help in this respect. Set aside a few minutes, twice a day, to play with your cat. Find out what she likes and change her toys on a regular basis. Conceal some catnip in the room and open a window to allow new smells in. Put some shelves up in the room so that your cat can climb across it, enjoying the view from different angles.


What if you're no longer here to care for your cat? 

No one likes to think about dying. However, it is important to consider what should happen to your pet then. Can your cat be taken in by a friend or a family member? If the answer is no, then our ‘When My Owner is No Longer Here’ scheme might be a good option.

With the ‘When My Owner is No Longer Here’ scheme, DOA will take care of your cat after your death. You can rest assured that your mate will be well-taken care of. Registering is easy, please fill out a form and we’ll get in touch with you.
