Pre-approved for adoption?

If you are in the market for a kitten or even casually considering one, we recommend getting an application preapproved. Kittens move fast! Dr. Floof and Domino went home immediately when we opened this morning with adopters who got approved months ago. They were adopted before we even got a chance to process the MOUNTAIN of applications we got for them in a matter of hours yesterday. If you're preapproved, you can come right in and take home the kitten that catches your eye before someone else does.
