About 4 million cats end up in shelters every year, including thousands born every spring and summer during "kitten season." To help promote adoptions of the these fun, affectionate animals, June has been labeled "Adopt-A-Cat Month."
I would like to give you a different point of view on why humans should consider adopting a cat from a shelter.
My opinion, by the way, is worth more than most. That is because I, myself, am a cat. My name is Tilly and I am a guest columnist for the humane society this month.
During the month of June, you will probably hear the usual reasons to adopt a cat from a shelter. Don't get me wrong, they are all good reasons. For example, you will be providing a shelter cat with a warm and dry place to live. We all want that, don't we? Furthermore, you will be providing the adopted cat with delicious, well-prepared meals and fresh water to drink. We all need that too!
