It’s that time of year when the shelters are overloaded with kittens. Their cute faces and adorable antics are hard to resist.
Animals are, in most cases, at least a ten year commitment. They require the funds to feed, medicate, vaccinate and, most importantly, spay and neuter.
Before adopting, be honest about your finances, your living arrangements, your time and your commitment to this kitten when it is an adult. Otherwise they end up back in the shelters, but this time competing for a new home with the adorable kittens.
Please adopt responsibly and realistically. But, please adopt.
