June Is Adopt-A-Shelter-Cat Month

Two of our adopted cats, Sage & Raven

This is a great time to adopt a shelter cat or two!  The first wave of Kitten Season has already hit in a lot of places, which means shelters are filling up with kittens, leaving little or no room, especially for adult cats.  Many rescue groups are waiving or reducing fees for adopting cats this month.  When you adopt you save a life and make room for another cat to have a chance.
