Great adoption tips. One comment I would like to make is not a tip, but something to consider. If you are going to adopt a cat (or dog) and you live in an apt. that accepts animals. IF you are considering moving to another apartment in the near future, or know that you may have to move, do not adopt an animal! You never know if your next place will accept pets.

Wish I could adopt a cat but their claws dig into me and make me bleed. Also, I have a feeding tube that a special milk is given through and I wouldn't want the cat to chew my tube to get to the milk. LOL Thnx Cher.

We Humans can do one think better why not take in a stray yes a "STRAY" you know that beat up cat that keeps coming to your door for a little food and some love why not open your door and heart an let me or her COME in because I can tell you for a "FACT" you will get non-stop love an will be jointed at the hip with a life long companion ya with a little bit of wear an tear from a hard life on the streets but love comes from the inside I have 53 Moggies all wore forgotten street cats an kittens an I have non-stop love an it is so PRICELESS so give a stray a try you will NOT be disappoint an you will be saving a loss life. =^..^=

TU Cher. We picked up our adopted kitty last Saturday. He was feral...probably about 7 months old. His mother has been trapped and adopted. We are waiting for our Toby's sibling to be turned into the shelter, and we will also adopt him or her. I

Always do your homework before adopting an animal.

I've had many cats during the past 45 years and all were either rescues or we found them. One lived to be 23 years old. She was a sweetheart!
