National Adopt a Cat Month

Did you know that millions of cats are in shelters across the country waiting for a loving parent or family to bring them home? See those pictures below. That is Anna and Kristoff (yes, we love Frozen) and they are shelter cats. Someone just abandoned them as kittens and while we weren’t even planning to get a cat, much less two cats, there was just something about this brother and sister pair that tugged at our heartstrings. One look at their beautiful faces from their shelter picture and I knew that they would be coming home with us. We hope that this National Adopt a Cat Month post inspires you.

National Adopt a Cat Month

Since June is Adopt a Shelter Cat Month, I thought that I would take the opportunity to share with you the importance of looking for shelter animals when considering a pet for your home. Many cats in shelters simply want their forever home, and Fresh Step® Litter wants to help families everywhere. Did you know that one of the biggest reasons cats are returned to shelters is litter box rejection?

Why June is particularly significant for cat adoption

  • Kitten Season: June coincides with the peak of kitten season, meaning shelters are overflowing with adorable fluffballs waiting for their forever homes. By adopting during this time, you're not only giving a kitty a loving home but also helping alleviate the strain on shelters.
  • Increased Awareness: During June, many animal shelters and rescue organizations hold special events and promotions to encourage cat adoption. This means you'll likely find adoption fees reduced or waived, and there are often opportunities to meet adoptable cats through local events.
  • The Joys of Cat Ownership: Cats make wonderful companions, offering purrs, cuddles, and endless entertainment. They can reduce stress, provide emotional support, and even improve your cardiovascular health.

October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month

If you're interested in adopting a cat in June, here are some things you can do

  • Contact your local animal shelter or rescue organization: They can help you find the perfect feline friend based on your preferences and lifestyle.
  • Participate in adoption events: Look for adoption fairs or open houses happening in your area. This is a great way to meet many adoptable cats at once.
  • Spread the word: Let your friends and family know you're considering adopting a cat. You never know who might be looking for a new furry friend!

  1. Those kitties are adorable! I have a friend who’s considering adopting a cat, I will share this with her.

  2. They are adorable, I love their names! I can’t believe cats are returned to shelters because of litter box rejection. The transition always takes time!

  3. I love that there is a whole month to shelter adoption!! I think shelters are often overlooked, and there are amazing pets there to be adopted.

  4. We adopted our cat from a shelter several years ago. There are so many cats there – I wish we could save them all!

  5. We have multiple adopted animals in our house. I love adopting cats (and dogs) from shelters and giving them good homes.

  6. I adopted my kitty, she is a love bug!! It’s so important to help the animals find loving homes!

    I wish I could adopt more cats. I have two right now and I don’t know if I’ll be getting more. I may get one more once my husband and I find a house. I just don’t know if my cats would get along with another cat.

  8. I so wish I could adopt a kitty. My kids are dying for one, but I am so allergic.

  9. Hubby used to have two cats and we have two back home too. This makes me miss them. I think it’s time to look into having cats again. 🙂

  10. Ann Bacciaglia

    Fresh Step is a great litter. I adopted both of my cats from a shelter. People should always check the shelter before they get a new pet.

  11. Pam

    I had no idea there was a Adopt a Shelter Cat month. All of my cats are from a shelter.

  12. Catherine Sargent

    Your cats are so cute. I would love to have a cat, but I am allergic to them.

  13. Jeanine

    Those kitties are so adorable! I love adopt a shelter cat month. There are so many waiting for good homes! This is great.

  14. This is great. So many pets need great loving homes.

  15. You’re the real MVP. I applaud people who adopt animals and give them loving homes. Thank you for sharing. ^Yolonda

  16. When i used to have cats I used fresh step all the time but now my grandma has them and she uses it as well!

  17. I had no idea they were returned for that reason, I wish we had room for a kitty. The kids and I have been talking about getting one but we just don’t have the room at this time.

  18. I have an amazing kitty I adopted from a shelter last year. I can’t imagine my life without her!

  19. I might end up adopting another cart soon. We do use Fresh Step and it works really well for us.

  20. monica

    I had cats growing up and think that they are such great family pets. I so want to adopt for my own kiddos!

  21. So many animals need a good home. We can take in dogs but we are allergic to cats 🙁

  22. Nicole Escat

    They are so lovely! I have a friend who loves cats and I think she will going to like this post. I will share this with her.

  23. kryst

    Looks like a great product for a loved cat! I didn’t know it was adopt a shelter cat month. I love when people adopt rather than buy!

  24. Rosey

    I’m glad there’s a month dedicated to cats. 🙂 We have a one-eyed cat we recently adopted. I wish we’d have named him Pirate. 😉

  25. Cats are no exceptions when it comes to unfortunate situations involving a permanent place to live at. That app is just awesome, this is why we can live with technology! Let’s hope for more users and donations.

  26. My daughter adopted a kitten last year and she’s dying to add another one to the family. Our kitty is an indoor/outdoor cat and prefers to “go” outdoors, but he will use his litter box if he has to. He just prefers the outdoors.

  27. So cute! I always had cats growing up. Normally they adopted us! I hope lots of needy cats find forever homes this month.

  28. Michele d

    I’ve adopted my cat from a shelter. It’s the best thing to do when rescuing a pet.

  29. This is so cute. I’m not a cat person but I love kittens. I’ve been meaning to take my kids to the shelter so they can check it out. They would want to leave with all of the pets.

    I love that you are helping to get the word out.

  30. Oh my gosh those cats are so adorable!!! I would love to have another cat in the house myself!

  31. I didn’t know about litter box rejection until reading this! Sad that so many cats are being abandoned because of this.

  32. Anna and Kristoff remind me of our two cats, Hazel and Meep. They are not shelter cats but they are rescue cats. Most of my pets have been from a local shelter other than these two sweeties.

  33. I think it is important that people go to the shelters instead of paying for kittens. There are so many cats that need loving homes.

  34. Oh my gosh I have no idea my birth month is also adopt a shelter cat month. I am not a big cat momma but I have a dog. Maybe I’ll do foster cat at one point however. Thank you for sharing this. xx
