Top 10 Reasons to Adopt an Adult Cat

10. Older cats are calmer.
9. Their personalities are well developed and a good match is easier to make.
8. There’s no question as to how big they will get.
7. They are less likely to get into mischief around the house.
6. They need less attention than young kittens, but can still be quite playful.
5. They still make strong bonds with their new families.
4. Many don’t mind if they are left alone while you are at work or school.
3. Cats often live 15 or even 20 years, so an 8 year old cat is only middle-aged and has many years of affection left to give.
2.These wonderful loving kitties deserve a second chance.

And the #1 reason to adopt an adult cat is…kittens aren’t kittens forever!

Adult Cats are even more adoptable with $50 adoption fees during the month of January! See all of our adorable, adoptable adult cats here: http://www.purrpartners.org/adopt/adults/

Why adopt a TEENAGED kitten?

kudzu

 

Why should you consider adopting a teenage kitten?   Teen felines are the best of both worlds – they still have the youthful spunk of kittens along with more fully developed personalities. When adopting a teen, you can get a much better idea of whether a cat will grow up to be a lap cat, an independent investigator, a playful cat who will never outgrow toys, and so on. This way you still get the cute baby animal and a much better idea of how you can expect him or her to mature and behave throughout the rest of their adult life of 15 to 20 years.  Pixel

So go ahead and visit one of the adoption centers at area Petsmart’s  (Wake Forest, Six Forks and Strickland or Capital and Millbrook) to find that perfect kitty!

Welcome to the Purr Partners website!

Welcome to our new Purr Partners Website.  We are the same Purr Partners; we just gave our site a new look!  Our mission is to help homeless felines find loving homes through adoption and placement.  Here at Purr Partners, we believe that every cat has value and deserves a loving home. It is through education, advocacy and support that we pursue our goal of no more homeless cats. We can not pursue this goal without your help.  Please consider helping us support our cause either by adopting, volunteering or by making a donation. Please contact us with any questions or email purrpartners@yahoo.com.
