When Mary Nielsen approached me with “10 Reasons Why Everyone Should Adopt a Cat”, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Then she told me she had created the infographic to motivate more people to adopt cats instead of buying them, “…giving them (cats) a new home that they deserve…” and I knew we were kindred spirits. Her website, FelineLiving.net, is fairly new, but she states “…I have been a cat lover forever and I started the site to help other cat parents care for their felines.” I found the infographic useful, informative, and pretty. I hope you do too. Be sure to check out her website for other cat- and pet-centric articles.
Please spread the word about wonderful reasons to adopt a pet!
Mary Nielsen founded FelineLiving.net and is a passionate cat lover, blogger, and part-time music teacher. She founded her blog to share her ups and downs of being a pet parent to a bunch of adorable kittens and cats. When she is not playing with them or teaching, you can find her experimenting in the kitchen.
Good stuff! Please share!~
Brilliant I totally agree I adopted my beautiful black boy 11 years ago and would definitely adopt again. I worked at the cats protection and thought I would be drawn to the kittens the most. But it was the older and elderly cats I was drawn to. Some of them had lost their owner due to illness or death. When they first came in they were so withdrawn and sad. They had lived a comfy life for 9 years or more. If you looked into their eyes you could see the unhappiness . How do you explain to a cat why all off a sudden he or she has been taken away from a comfy home with someone they loved and trusted. Over time with understanding ,love,care and playing they would again put their trust in us. I always thought it was such a magical moment when they began to trust you and thought life was worth living again. I love helping the elderly cats.x
I love the older ones too!

Most shelter cats are also appreciative of being taken out of that environment and become good friends with you
Yes, they do!
