MORE INFORMATION: To help our adult cats get homes faster, KHS is running an adoption special: Adopters can take home adult cats for just $5 on "$5 Fridays" August 2013.
The $5 Fridays adoption special is designed to help cats age one year or older find great homes faster.
"We are in the middle of 'kitten season,' with more than 100 kittens who were born this spring coming in to the shelter to be adopted," says Susan Oppel, KHS shelter operations director. "This time of year can be particularly hard on adult cats, as it's hard for them to compete with fluffy, little kittens."
But 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.
The adoption special takes place at nine permanent KHS adoption locations, including seven Feeders Supply stores. Adopters pay just $5 for adult cats. Residents in Jefferson County must pay $9.50 for licensing. Adoption is pending approval of an application process that usually takes an hour or less. The adoption special runs Fridays in August 2013 only.
