Why Adopt a Cat?
June is Adopt-A-Shelter-Cat month, and here in the Denver area, the Dumb Friends League has a wonderful list of reasons why a cat is an excellent choice as a companion. Check out their adoptable cats at http://www.ddfl.org/services/adoption-process.
EASY TO PLEASE: Cats are happy living indoors, whether watching out the window or napping in your lap.
ENTERTAINING: Cats love to play – with you or by themselves – and are guaranteed to make you laugh!
SOCIABLE: Cats can live happily with kids, other cats, and even dogs. Our cats have the two dogs pretty much under control.
NEAT AND CLEAN: Cats spend one-third of their waking hours grooming themselves.
PEST HUNTERS: Cats have incredibly sensitive hearing, even while sleeping, which helps them rid your home of mice, moths, and other unwanted visitors. It’s Miller Moth season in Colorado – you should see the fun our cats are having!
TIDY AS CAN BE: Cats do not need to be litter box trained. It’s a natural habit continued from their ancestors.
GREAT COMPANY: Cats will keep you company, comfort you when you’re blue and keep you warm on cold nights.
GOOD ROOMMATES: Cats make great urban dwellers and are popular among people who live in the city, apartments or smaller homes because cats don’t require much space or a backyard.
GOOD FOR YOU: Owning a cat can make you healthier and happier by lowering your blood pressure, reducing the risk of heart attacks and strokes, and improving your mood, according to WebMD.
Cats are fantastic, magical creatures, and are sure to add warmth and fun to any home. Consider adopting a cat.
