Adopted a kitty today - and not a kitten, a full grown cat. We named her Honey Pot.
My son is working at our local animal shelter as a volunteer (though it is not voluntary, yet. He is doing community service for carrying tobacco products to school, but plans to continue to work there as a volunteer after his service hours are complete) and he works with the cats.
The people who work at the shelter told me that they adopt out every single one of the kittens, but very few people take the adult cats. These cats end up living their entire lives in what should be a temporary holding cage - but it is usually their home until they pass on. These cages are small... and any idiot can see how badly the residents of these cages crave human love and affection. Please, adopt an *adult* cat. $40 adoption fee (at our shelter; that fee may be larger or smaller at the one near you) and the pet is spayed/neutered, vaccinated and treated for fleas and worms. Kittens are cute, yes, but they aren't the only ones that need and want to feel love.Do me this favor. If you are looking for a pet and love cats, please visit your local Animal Shelter and adopt. There are tons of beautiful animals just aching for a home and someone to love. Don't leave them to die alone in a cage simply because they grew up before you found them.
Peace & Love (please share some)
