Adopting a cat from the cat shelther

Growing up, I lived with dogs, turtles, hamsters, guinea pigs and fishes and at one point, we have 7 dogs at our home as a kid. I’ve always been surrounded by animals and it feels strange not to have pets at home. I have been thinking about having a cat for years but getting a cat is a big decision and I finally feel ready.

Gimmy brought up cat shelters to me sometime ago. That’s fantastic, there are so many cats out there that need a home. Thinking about adopting a cat or visiting a cat shelter in Göteborg? Read more on Gimmy’s blog.

Meet my cat, Ebba!


We adopted Ebba from Djurens Vänner in Växjö. There are several cat shelters in Sweden, mostly in bigger towns and cities. If you are a cat-lover, or miss having a cat or is looking to adopt a cat, visit a cat shelter!

On their Facebook page, you can see an album with ‘Katter som söker hem’ which means cats that are looking for a new home. The cat shelter is full of adorable cats, feels great being there. It costs 1000 SEK to adopt a cat and 1600 SEK to adopt two. Since Ebba is an adult, she has all the vaccinations taken care of. I got to bring Ebba home immediately.

Ebba adapts really fast, by the second day she is already ‘at home’ and follows me everywhere. Sometimes I wake up with her sleeping beside me if she managed to find a spot on the bed to squeeze in. Such a gem!
