June is American Humane's Adopt-A-Cat Month

By jim Published: June 2, 2009

Approximately 4 million cats end up in shelters every year.

Each year, thousands of kittens are born during spring and summer -- and many end up in animal shelters, waiting for loving homes. To promote adoptions of these playful, affectionate animals, American Humane celebrates Adopt-A-Cat Month in June.

Adopt a cat from your local shelter today. Adopting a cat will enrich your world in so many different ways. Here’s how:

  • Cats will keep you entertained with their playful antics.

  • Cats are very affectionate and love to cuddle with you.

  • Having a cat can reduce your blood pressure and prevent heart disease.

  • Cats are very clean -- they bathe themselves!

  • Cats are independent and can be left alone while you are at work.

  • Cats do not need to be housebroken -- using the litter box comes naturally to them.

  • Cats do not need a lot of space. They are perfect pets for apartments and smaller homes.

  • Taking care of a cat can help teach a child responsibility and humane values.

  • Cats get plenty of exercise living indoors. Just 15 minutes of playtime each day will satisfy a cat.

  • Approximately 4 million homeless cats end up in animal shelters every year in the United States. By adopting, you’ll be saving a life.
