June is Adopt A Shelter Cat Month! This is one cause that we are happy to support! Kitties make wonderful pets, and they really help turn our houses into homes. Read on as a local Webster, NY vet lists some great reasons to consider adopting a shelter cat.
Save A Life
Kitties often end up in shelters through no fault of their own. Some are former pets that were lost or abandoned, while others have been surrendered, often due to bad circumstances. You may also find kittens that were found and rescued, or felines that have been saved from unhappy circumstances. Giving one luck furball a second chance is a very beautiful and rewarding experience, and one that will change both your life and Fluffy’s life forever.
Another great perk of adopting from a shelter is that it’s often cheaper than getting your feline friend from a breeder or pet store. You may also save on veterinary care costs, since shelter cats are usually fixed and current on vaccinations and parasite control.
Help Other Animals
If you’re reading this, there’s a good chance that you, like us, are an animal lover, who would love to help every homeless kitty. That’s too big of a job for any one person, but even saving just one furball will make a difference. Plus, by giving Fluffy a second chance, you’re also helping other animals. You’ll be freeing up some space for another cute kitty to try and get adopted, and helping support the shelter financially.
Pick The Purrfect Feline
Our feline pals come in all colors and sizes. Whether you want a kitten you can raise from the start, a calm older kitty, or a sweet senior feline, you will be able to find a great match waiting for you. Plus, you can spend a bit of time with Fluffy before deciding. This is very important! After all, adoption is a lifetime commitment!
Make A Furever Friend
Many people report that the cats they adopt from shelters make the best pets. Kitties know when someone has helped them, and are often absolutely devoted to their saviors. You’ll be rewarded for your kindness with purrs, cuddles, and unconditional love. That’s a pretty good deal in our book!
