Each year, thousands of kittens are born during the 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. Visit the fabulous felines at your local animal shelter, and take home your new best friend.

Adopting a cat will enrich your world in so many different ways. For instance:

● Cats keep you entertained with their playful antics.

● Cats are affectionate and love to cuddle.



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

● Cats are clean – they bathe themselves.
