Adopt-A-Cat Month Is Just Around The Corner (June). Here Are The Top 10 Reasons to Adopt a Cat:

  1. Cats will keep you entertained with their playful antics.
  2. Cats are very affectionate and love to cuddle with you.
  3. Having a cat can reduce your blood pressure and prevent heart disease.
  4. Cats are very clean — they bathe themselves!
  5. Cats are independent and can be left alone while you are at work.
  6. Cats do not need to be housebroken – using the litter box comes naturally to them.
  7. Cats do not need a lot of space. They are perfect pets for apartments and smaller homes.
  8. Taking care of a cat can help teach a child responsibility and humane values.
  9. Cats get plenty of exercise living indoors. Just 15 minutes of playtime each day will satisfy a cat.
  10. Approximately 4 million homeless cats end up in animal shelters every year in the United States. By adopting, you’ll be saving a life.
