My cat died several months ago. My home just hasn't been the same without her. Now that I am getting over the sadness, I figured the perfect thing to do would be to adopt a pet who needs a home. So I just adopted two adult cats and I'm thrilled to be heading home with them.
I have a cat already, and feel like he is lonely while I'm at work. So I wanted to adopt another, to keep him company. I am adopting a cat that looks like him because I think they might be more likely to get along well if they look alike.
I am a fan of adopting a pet that needs a home because it is saving a life. And of course I am also a fan of "free." So to me, a free adoption is the perfect combination. It is doing something great, and getting something great, all at once.

I want to help reduce the population of unwanted animals, and having a pet teaches children to be gentle and respectful of life. Also, I think rescued animals always make the best pets and are wonderful company.
Our dog has seemed so lonely since our elderly cat died last year. So even though I swore I would never get another pet, I figured the best thing I could do for the dog would be to find and adopt a sweet, friendly cat or kitten who needs a home, and make him part of our family.
