Adoption means a healthier cat as your pet. Some people might have the misconception that cats in shelters have something wrong with them. In fact, most cats 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 cats of all breeds, including purebred cats. Purebred cat breeders are people who breed cats as a hobby or to make money, but don’t make a commitment to the cat for life if they cannot find them a home. While people often think they want a purebred cat from a cat breeder, they might not realize that often mixed-breed cats 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 cats and pet lovers. How can you find a cat to love you for life? It’s simple: Adopt!
