Blue cross animal charity kittens?

Hi I've had cats before, but never a rescue, has anyone had experience dealing with a shelter? We've got to take photos of the house and garden, and go for 2 meetings to meet a potential kitten. 

I don't Mind jumping through hoops, I've nothing to hide and kitty needs a suitable home, 

But my question is, what will they be looking for? I really want this to happen and don't want to jeopardize it for something silly, like a big vase of lily's in the photograph!! (Poisonous to cats incase I need to explain)

Also when greeting kitten for first time, I take it it's just be, gentle, let kitten come to me don't be too overbearing etc?

All help appreciated

    Each shelter works differently, so follow their policy.... many shelters are concerned that too many of their cats/kitten end up very quickly back with them, so are doing more now to try to stop this.

    But they want good life long homes for their cats/kittens

    TALK to the people at the shelter, they will guide you through the process.

    I'd guess they are trying to screen out animal hoarders and such--maybe also if they notice obvious dangers to cats...but that is really kind of stupid because I am sure any motivated hoarder would just go to a friends house and take a pic.  better to make a home visit.
