National Adopt a Shelter Cat Month 2015

Can you believe it? Tomorrow is June 1. That means we are nearly half way through 2015. I don't know about you, but it makes my head spin to think how quickly time is passing. Some say that's a sign of growing older. In my case I'm sure it's true.

Though time passes quickly for me, I'm pretty sure it creeps by at a crawl for critters in shelters who are waiting for their own special family. June is Adopt a Shelter Cat Month. If you're thinking about adding a feline to your household, please consider taking a look at your local shelter. Kittens are adorable, and tend to be adopted very quickly. Adults, not so much. You might want to take a good long look at available adult and senior cats. Give them a chance, too. I don't think you'll be sorry.

In honor of Adopt a Shelter Cat Month, I'm featuring 3 kitty cuties from local shelters in my area. A link to information on each one is included. They are each paws-itively adorable.

This handsome orange kitty is called Donut. What a sweet face!

Here's another adorable feline. Her name is Samara, and she reminds me of my own Bogey boy.

Though this looks a bit like a line-up photo, I'm sure Bitty is no kitty convict. Isn't his "beard" cool?.

















Bogey asked me to remind everyone that all homes should have at least one cat because there is no better snoopervisor on earth. And he should know.

Pat--Did you see the call for poetry submissions (about animals) on Claudia's/Bookie's blog? The deadline is June 13 (I think) and the entry fee is only $1 per poem. AND the entry fees go to animal rescue...

Very sweet cats. I hope they find good homes.

You are not kidding Pat - I don't even remember where the past 5 years went!
I hope those beautiful cats find the best homes. They so deserve it.
Bogie, if only I could have another cat. Dylan our late cat was not good for my asthma and I never once thought of giving him up but could not get another or I would be straight down to the shelter.

Great post, Pat. Although I'd never considered adopting a senior cat before we found Catsby, I think I'd only consider older cats from now on. I like my pets with a little wisdom. ;)

When it is time for a new cat in the future, we will get a shelter one again. Wishing all the shelter cats wonderful forever homes.

Senior pets are wonderful companions, and they deserve love just like the young ones do. We're not looking for another cat (we have 2) but when the time comes, I'd definitely give an older baby a chance.

Such sweet cats... I think the more mature cats are the way to go versus a kitten. And love your paw prints in your previous post. So cute.

What a lovely reminder to adopt! As I get older, the faster time flies...
