Adopt An Adorable New Family Member This June!

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.

Before adopting a cat, here is a good checklist you should look over to make sure you and your family are truly ready for the commitment of a new feline family member. Tip #2 on the adoption checklist is to find a cat that has a personality that fits with your own.

Find a cat whose personality meshes with yours. Just as we each have our own personality, so do cats. In general, cats with long hair and round heads and bodies are more easygoing than lean cats with narrow heads and short hair, who are typically more active. Adoption counselors can offer advice to help you match the cat’s personality with your own.
