It’s Adopt-a-Cat month and if you’re planning to bring home a new feline family member anytime soon, we’ve put together this list of 15 Clever Gift Ideas to help welcome them into your home.
Each spring thousands of kittens are born, adding to the millions of cats already housed in shelters across the country. That means our local shelters have many adorable kittens to choose from in addition to older, more mellow cats. Please consider adopting a shelter cat (or two…three’s a good number also!) this month. >^..^<
