“We are in the middle of ‘kitten season,’ with hundreds kittens are being born,” says Robin Vincent, KHS Shelter Director. “This adoption special helps us highlight wonderful adult cats who are also looking for great homes and to make room for kittens who need our help.
According to Vincent, there are many advantages to adopting an older cat:
- With an adult cat you have a better idea of their personality.
- Adult cats are lower maintenance—they need little monitoring and are experts in long cat naps.
- Many adult cats came from previous homes and are usually well versed at being good pets.
- Adult cats get into less mischief, and you do not need to "kitten-proof" your home.
Adoption is pending approval of an application process that usually takes an hour or less.
All cats adopted from KHS have been spayed or neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and given flea and tick preventatives. Adopters receive a $100 Feeders Supply coupon book and more than $125 in KHS pet care gift certificates.
The adoption special takes place at the KHS East Campus at 1000 Lyndon Lane and at seven Feeders Supply stores. Cats at Purrfect Day Cafe are not part of this special. Adopters also pay for applicable licensing fees ($10.50 if they live in Jefferson County).
