June is Adopt a Shelter Cat Month. I assume it is because most kittens are born in the spring so shelters become overwhelmed with kitties that need homes. I would love to help by adopting another cat but Frankie put us over our limit so all I can do is remind people that there are so many cats out there that need a home right now.
If you or anyone you know could use a great companion, please check out your local shelter… and don’t forget that in addition to the kittens, there are many older cats that have been behind bars for too long.
Yep, it is due to a high number of kitties being born in the Spring, but we think every month should be Adopt A Shelter Cat Month!
There are always shelter cats looking for a home.
Paws up for an important message!
I only wish I could do more.
Getting the word out is important. Sometimes, being part of “adopt-a-cat month” is the little push it takes to go from thinking about that new family member to making it a reality.
Yes. If one person is motivated to take action it is worth it.
Getting the message out there on every blog is what matters. You did good * high paw *
Greetings to Frankie!

Thank you for emphasizing the fact that there are always older cats up for adoption as well. So many people see the kittens and think that’s what they want, but I actually prefer adult or senior cats. It is sad how many great cats are always in shelters. 😦 Thanks for this post!
Older cats are perfect for someone who wants a little peace in the house 🙂 I also respect people who adopt senior cats so they won’t have to live the rest of their lives in a shelter.
