Adopt a Cat

COMPLETED BY 124

LISTED 148

  1. Adopting a cat from a shelter rather than other avenues means you are helping, and not contributing to, the pet overpopulation problem.

  2. The cost of adopting a pet at an animal shelter is usually much less expensive than buying one from a breeder or pet store.

  3. Breeders or pet stores sell pets with the incentive to make money, whereas shelters are focused on the animal's best interests.

  4. Often cats adopted from shelters have already been spayed or neutered. Most of them have also been wormed and vaccinated.

  5. Shelter cats have often adjusted to being around other animals.

Many people express that adopting a cat from a shelter is extremely spiritually rewarding - knowing that they are saving a life (some shelters euthanize animals for population control) and giving them a new home.

He was less than a 1 month old and was almost dying. A friend found him but he wasn't eating neither drinking. So I kept him and took care of him. Now he is pretty happy
