Adopt a Shelter Cat
June is Adopt a Shelter Cat Month. Last June we adopted our cat Shane from our local shelter and he is one of the greatest cats I've ever owned. We are not sure what kind of life Shane had before his 3 months at the shelter, but he is definitely enjoying the good life now. Also this year we fostered several kittens to get them healthy enough to adopt. If you are unable to adopt a shelter cat, I recommend fostering kittens - you get the joy of cuddling kittens while helping out your local shelter without the commitment of providing a forever home for an animal. I have also volunteered with the adoptions for shelter animals, the day I helped saved a life of an adorable orange tabby kitten by placing him with a local family is a special day I will always remember. If you are unable to adopt a pet you can help the shelter out by fostering animals short term, donating food, volunteering your time, or donating money. Be a responsible pet owner and spay or neuter your pet and the next time you decide to add a pet to your family, check the local shelter first.
