December Pet Events
December pet events honor several species of pets. However, the entire month is National Cat Lovers’ Month.
About Adopting a Feline
An article in the December issue of Tufts Catnip talks about choosing a kitty for adoption based on their personality. They advise to take your time and visit the cat several times before making up your mind in order to see how they respond. So, depending on what kind of interactions you prefer to have with your feline buddy. Do you want an active and playful kitty, or a more laid back cat who just likes to snuggle in your lap?
It goes on to say that a good idea is to ask the rescue attendees what they have noticed in the cat’s behavior if it has been with them awhile, and they may have information on the cat’s history. Also, that rather than a kitty, an older 7 to 10-year old cat may be a good starting point since their personality has had time to form and show itself.
In any event, if you are just now considering adopting a kitty you might check out Cat Adoption Team in Sherwood, Oregon, and the Oregon Humane Society here as well if you are a local resident in my area. Otherwise, you can Google a great cat rescue in your own local area.
If you are a cat lover, December is your time!
