The cats at adoption days at Petco and Petsmart are generally fosters cats. So they are in the cage for 4 hours on Saturday, but otherwise are in a home with lots of loving care.
I took my foster Sugartoes to Petco in Lake Zurich, IL Saturday. No cats or kittens were adopted
! But my baby Smartie was there (she has been in another foster home with other kittens for about 2 weeks.) Well, the people who were keeping Smartie and her new brothers couldn't keep them this week, so I have her again (and them). When I picked her up to kiss her little face, she started purring! And the new kittens, Danny and Phantom are little loves!
Please come and look at the cats and kittens at the adoption shows! And send your friends. Sometimes, even if you are not purchasing, just by standing next to someone else and noting how special a certain kitty is, they may be more interested! And it helps everyone keep in mind that overpopulation really is a serious problem.
