June is Adopt A Cat Month! This time of year kittens are at their peak! You can bring home a brand new family member! The best place to go to do this is your local shelter. Rescue your newest family member and support your local shelter this June. Multnomah County Animal Services is a good place to start your search for the cat for your family.

When thinking of adopting a cat there is a good checklist you should look over to make sure you and your family are truly ready for the commitment of this new family member. The first one is to consider adopting two cats instead of just one.

If you’re thinking about adopting a cat, consider taking home two. Cats require exercise, mental stimulation, and social interaction. Two cats can provide this for each other. Plus they’ll provide more benefits to you.

Cats’ purring has been shown to soothe humans as well as themselves — and they have an uncanny ability to just make you smile. A great place to start your search is online. Sites like petfinder.com let you search numerous shelters in your area simultaneously to help narrow your search and more quickly find the match that’s right for you and your new feline friend.
