Jean Luc Talks About Death (but in a good way)

Can we talk about something that’s important, but that no one really wants to think about? Yes? Good!

Cats are cherished members of our families, offering companionship and unconditional love. As responsible pet owners, we provide for their needs, ensuring their well-being and happiness throughout their lives. However, one aspect that is often overlooked is planning for their future in case we (and by “we” I mean “you”) pass away before them. While it may not be a comfortable topic to consider, planning for your cat’s care after your demise is crucial for their continued welfare.
Luckily, our awesome rescue partner, SPCA Florida has come up with an innovate program – called Lifetime Care – which makes the process of planning easy:

Step 1:  Identify SPCA Florida as Your Pet’s Caregiver
You need not rely on friends, relatives or neighbors as potential caregivers.

Step 2: Prepare Written Instructions
Outline in detail, your cat’s daily care. What are their habits, favorite foods, and toys? Do they enjoy being brushed or love to lounge in a screened in porch? Do you want your cats to stay together or would they rather be apart? The more detailed the instructions, the better SPCA Florida will be equipped to provide them the best possible care.

Step 3: Set up a Fund
Your estate planner, financial advisor, or life insurance company can help you set asides funds ($5,000 per cat) for Lifetime Care.  Established a trust separate from your will can provide funds that are ore readily available when necessary.  Should you become incapacitated, a power of attorney authorizes someone to conduct your affairs and that person can contact SPCA, Florida should something happen to you.

Step 4:  Rest Easy Knowing Your Cats Have a Long and Loving Future
SPCA, Florida will hand select an appropriate and loving home for your cat!  Personalities and lifetimes will be matched, and financial solvency will be verified.  Most importantly, they guarantee a loving environment, and will be their to monitor your cats for their rest of their days.
See!  We did it!  We talked about something uncomfortable, and we survived!  Planning for your cat’s future is an essential aspect of responsible pet ownership.  By planning for their care in the event of your absence, you safeguard their well-being and ensure that they continue to receive the love, attention, and support they deserve (not to mention the cookies).
