June Is Adopt A Cat Month

June is Adopt A Cat Month, and in celebration local rescue groups will have kittens and cats for adoption at local TICA cat shows.

Many cats and kittens adopted from shelters and rescue groups have enjoyed the “spotlight” at cat shows and become winning household pet cats and kittens. Last show season that ended April 30, 2010, there were 506 household pet cats and 186 household pet kittens that competed at local shows around the world.

TICA was the first cat registry that allowed registration of household pets. Cats and kittens can also compete for the same regional and international awards as pedigreed cats. Household pet cats can also earn the same titles as pedigreed cats registered with TICA.

Each year millions of cats end up in shelters, with rescue groups or on the streets. And spring of course means many little kittens born and needing homes. So, to spread the word about cats and kittens who need a forever loving home, June is Adopt A Cat Month.

Shelters and rescue groups across the country can use your help — either getting the word out to other cat lovers who are looking for a new feline friend to join their family….who can help out by fostering a cat, kitten or mom with litter…who can make donations in funds or items…or even better, who can give a forever home to a new cat, kitten or pair!

Even older cats bask in the love of a new family
