Adoption means a healthier kitten as your pet. Some people might have the misconception that kittens in shelters have something wrong with them. In fact, most kittens for adoption end up in shelters not because of any problem with pet behavior or health issues, but because they were dropped off by someone who simply didn't have the time or money to care for the animals. In some cases pets are lost and never found by their owners. These animals are healthy and very eager to please. Shelters have kittens of all breeds, including purebred kittens. Purebred kittens sometimes end up in shelters because a kitten breeder was not able to sell all the kittens. These people are sometimes called "backyard" kitten breeders. They are people who breed kittens as a hobby or to make money, but don’t make a commitment to the Kitten for life if they cannot find them a home. While people often think they want a purebred kittens from a kitten breeder, they might not realize that often mixed-breed kitten are genetically healthier. Less inbreeding means less inherited genetic disease and breed related defects, lower vet bills and happier little animals! Adoption is a win-win for kittens and pet lovers. How can you find a kitten to love you for life? It’s simple: Adopt!
