Cats love Cuddledown, too!

Did you know that June is Adopt-A-Cat-Month®? Sponsored by the American Humane Association, this initiative aims to place shelter cats in loving homes.

If you’re thinking about adopting a cat, here are 10 helpful hints, courtesy of the American Humane Association:

  1. If you’re thinking about adopting a cat, consider taking home two.
  2. Find a cat whose personality matches with yours.
  3. Pick out a veterinarian ahead of time and schedule a visit within the first few days following the adoption.
  4. Make sure everyone in the house is prepared to have a cat before it comes home.
  5. Budget for the short- and long-term costs of a cat.
  6. Stock up on supplies before the cat arrives.
  7. Cat-proof your home.
  8. Go slowly when introducing your cat to new friends and family.
  9. Be sure to include your new pet in your family’s emergency plan.
  10. If you’re considering giving a cat as a gift, make sure the recipient is an active participant in the adoption process.

If you’ve already adopted a feline friend, provide them with a pet bed so they’ll have a cozy place to rest. Tell us, do you have any pets?
