Have you been thinking about adding a new member to your family?
If one of the characteristics you’re looking for is a four-legged friend who purrs … then now is a great time to consider adopting a shelter cat!
June is National “Adopt-a-Shelter-Cat” month – and while any month is a great time adopt a cat, special focus is placed this month on helping shelter cats find their new forever homes.
The type of cat you’re looking for depends on lots of factors, including:
- Your existing family members – if you have young children, older adults or other pets living with you, you’ll want to make sure your new family member fits well into the mix.
- Your lifestyle – are you frequently gone from home for long stretches of the day? If so, a kitten may not be the right choice, while an older cat might be the perfect fit.
- Will this be your first cat? Kittens are extremely cute, but can be high maintenance.
There are many other factors to consider, of course, these are just a few. Talk to the staff at your local animal shelter or rescue, and be sure to let them know about your family and lifestyle – they will know the questions to ask you to be sure you find the new family member you’ve been looking for!
Select Chuck & Don’s stores have cats available for adoption, too!
