  Lots of cats need good homes; when you adopt one, you’re saving a life!

And don’t forget these important cat care steps once you’ve adopted your new feline friend:

  •     Spay/neuter: If the animal shelter you adopt from does not spay or neuter their adopted animals, take your cat to a veterinarian for this simple procedure. Your cat will actually be happier and healthier for it, and you won’t have to worry later about finding homes for a litter of kittens.

  •     ID Tags: Your cat can’t carry a wallet, so he needs a collar with an ID tag. Even if you keep him inside, he could slip out one day and become lost, and you may never see him again. Include your name, address and phone number on the tag.
