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.
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 third item on the checklist is to pick your veterinarian first and set up visits after you adopt.
Pick out a veterinarian ahead of time and schedule a visit within the first few days following the adoption. You’ll want to take any medical records you received from the adoption center on your first visit. Kittens in particular should accompany you to make the appointment – even before the exam itself – so staff can pet the cat and tell you that you’ve chosen the most beautiful one ever.
