Did you know June is American Humane’s Adopt A Cat Month? It is and it’s great.
Cats are beautiful creatures. Smart, inquisitive, loving, soft, and they purr! You can’t go wrong with a creature that makes the ultimate comforting sound.
Unfortunately there are so many cats without homes, cats that would love to find that special person to call their own… If you were thinking about getting a pet, then not only is now the time to do it, but what better pet than a cat?
Cats are perfect for busy people as they’re very good at entertaining themselves (and they like some quiet time to get some of their much-needed sleep in). They’re quiet and small and are perfect for small city apartments where a large dog just isn’t feasible.
Sure, you’ll be giving a cat a home, but if you think about what you’re getting in return, then you’ll realise what a bargain it is. People with pets are happier and live longer. A cat will comfort you when you’re down, keep you warm in winter, and always be there when you’re feeling lonely. They love to play and they’ll keep your place mouse-free!
They’re such loyal and loving companions, don’t be surprised if you end up with two.
Check your local shelter and even pet store (on the weekends they often have societies who turn up with cats available for adoption). There are places online you can check, too. Martha Stewart, North Shore Animal League, Best Friends Animal Society, and even About.com are a few great places to start.
And remember, while kittens are adorable, older cats are , too, often mellowed and ready to be your purrfect friend and companion.
