The Subject of My Local Newspaper Column This Week
Although I’ve spent a lot of my time over the years attempting to rescue abandoned dogs from the mean city streets, I am also a cat lover.
As I wander around the city and the suburbs these days, I very sadly see more and more homeless cats out on our streets, and finding anyone to adopt a homeless cat today is even more difficult than finding someone to adopt a homeless dog.
To address this enormous problem, The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) and many other animal welfare organizations across the United States now designate the month of June as ‘Adopt-A-Cat Month.’
Each and every spring during ‘kitten season,’ thousands of newborn felines now join the millions of homeless cats already on the streets and in animal shelters all across our country. And June is the perfect month for Adopt-A-Cat Month, since this year's newborn kittens are already at an adoptable age, and our already overcrowded animal shelters have so many older cats that still need good homes in order to make room for the never-ending strays and homeless felines still very sadly in need of some help.
“Spring and summer are the times of year when animal shelters are all over-flowing with cats of all ages, sizes, and colors,” says the President and CEO of the ASPCA. “We want to help raise awareness of this in order to bring home the reality that thousands of cats need safe and loving new homes, right now. By adopting a feline friend, not only are you giving a shelter cat a second chance at life, but you will also gain a lifelong companion who will bring many years of love and devotion to your family.”
All of my cats were adopted from animal shelters, or were rescued from the mean city streets, and all of them truly appreciate the kindness and the affection now being given to them.
Please find it in your heart to visit your local animal shelter in June – ‘Adopt-A-Cat Month’ - and give at least one deserving feline – a second chance - and a brand new lease on life.

|Already have three saved cats...

|My next-door neighbors' love for cats is enough for me. I see them all the time in my backyard stalking birds.
If there is an Armageddon or if society breaks down, I believe the common house cat will survive because they have very good inmate hunting capabilities and seem to be able to adapt to many environments quite well. In those dystopian scenarios, mice, rats, cockroaches, and small birds… All cat food, abound. that is, unless humans eat them first.

|Living here in a "no pets allowed" complex, there have been two stray cats Danae and I befriended, quasi adopted, and gave food to outside our apartment. Unfortunately, one day they just disappeared, vanished after a landlord became disgruntled that they were disturbing his disposition...he claimed he hated cats and didn't want them encouraged to haunt his property. That was, of course, until a lady friend of his moved in with a gray Siamese, who now enjoys the comforts of a duplicitous landlord whose double standard will probably cause even more unsuspecting pets to disappear. Adopting here is not going to happen, so I will have to be supportive in "spirit."|
