Agatha the Cat Says: June is Adopt-a-Shelter-Cat Month (PHOTOS!)

Agatha
Agatha is ready to go home with you! She's at the ASPCA in New York City.

Agatha, a 2-year-old white tabby, wants you to know that June is Adopt-A-Shelter-Cat Month. (Now doesn't she have a nice smile!) Agatha is staying at the ASPCA in New York City, but she is hoping it is only a temporary stop as she is looking for her forever home. Sweet Aggie deserves to be with a loving family, as do thousands of other homeless kitties.

When I see pictures of rescue cats like Agatha and then read their stories, I want to know what I can do to help. How can I make a difference?

I decided to use my blog's platform to call attention to rescue cats from shelters across the country. In this post I have included a Petfinder widget that highlights shelter kitties from Cumberland, Maine to Seattle, Washington. I chose rescues that I have had interactions with on my Careers for Your Cat Facebook page.

Take a look. Maybe you'll find a furry friend!
