My Adopted Kitties

June is Adopt-A-Cat Month!

June is the American Humane's Adopt-A-Cat Month. (Much of the following information is pulled from their site.)

Over 4 million cats are put into shelters each year. If you are looking for a loving pet, surely one of these cats is for you. Some shelters are no-kill, which means they can only keep so many pets from euthanization, unless the pets they have are adopted. And the shelters that aren't no-kill, well, they can only keep their pets for so long. Spring is a popular time for kittens to be born, leaving many in shelters, waiting for adoption and loving homes. And of course, there are always adult cats waiting for loving homes too! Kittens are cute, but older cats are sometimes better suited to some homes.

A cat can enrich your life. If you're thinking of adopting a cat, go have a look-see at your local shelter or rescue organization.

There's also information about adopting shelter cats on the ASPCA website here.
