When kitten season is in full swing, our adoption events are visited by lots of enthusiastic people wanting to play with kittens, tell us about theirs, and quite often—adopt one. This time of year, things are slower, and the cats seen in our Newpark store are mostly the teenagers.
The teen-aged cats don’t play nearly as much in their cages, chase each other, or hang upside down like the kittens. Mostly, they just nap. Because of this, they are often passed right by which is a shame, because this is quite possibly the best age to adopt a cat at. They’re still plenty young to enjoy playing and being silly, but they’re old enough to understand when you discipline them, and they are old enough to have started to develop their personality. You have a better idea if they cat you are adopting is going to be a lap cat, one who likes to be pet but not held, or a live wire, running all over the house like it’s still a month-old kitten.
Patches, Fiona and Alistair are just a few of these teen cats available right now. All available for viewing Saturday and Sunday from 12 to 3 p.m. at Newpark Mall. Come by and give them pet, you won’t regret it.
