5 Things You Learn When Adopting a Shelter Cat

June is officially Adopt A Shelter Cat Month! (We think every month should be Adopt A Cat Month, but that’s beside the point.) Rescuing a kitty from a shelter can be a great way to get your new pet. You’ll save money, give Fluffy a second chance, and also promote good animal welfare. You may also learn a few things along the way! Here, a Somerville, MA vet lists some things you find out when you adopt shelter cats.

Choosing Isn’t Easy

Sometimes it only takes people one look at an adorable furry face to know they’ve found their pet. However, it isn’t always that easy picking from a roster of cute kitties. Take your time! Adopting a pet is a lifelong commitment, so it’s important to make the right choice.

Cats Blossom With Love

Being in a shelter can be a very scary and stressful experience for a little furball. Your kitty may sleep a lot when you first bring her home, and may be a bit shy at first. However, with each passing day, Fluffy will feel more at ease. Time, love, good care, and patience will all help turn a timid, frightened cat into a charismatic, lovable furball. You may have that little motor going before you know it!

Kitties Idolize Their Saviors

Cats have a reputation for being cold, aloof, and self-centered, but this isn’t entirely fair. Fluffy can be very emotional and cuddly! Of course, some cats prefer to be admired from a distance. No matter what your furry buddy’s purrsonality is, your kitty will appreciate your kindness, and reward you with unconditional love, friendship, and purrs.

Every Feline Is Different

If there’s one thing we know about cats, it’s that every single one of them has their own unique characteristics. In fact, Fluffy has an almost endless repertoire of adorable quirks. Even if you’ve had kitties all your life, there’s a good chance that your new pet will have some cute new purrsonality traits that keep you smiling.

Cats May Be A Little Magic
