There are a few things we can count on every spring. Days get longer and grow warmer, flowers return and speckle the landscape with color, and new life springs up everywhere. After all, humans aren't the only creatures romances blooms for this time of year!
June marks the height of "kitten season," when large litters of kittens are born after mating season at the first of the year. Many end up abandoned or in shelters, looking for their furever homes. This year marks the 45th Annual Adopt-A-Cat month, initiated by the American Humane Society, which looks to foster awareness for cat and kitten adoption. Besides donating, volunteering, and - of course - adopting, one of the things kitty lovers can do to celebrate Adopt-A-Cat month is to share our stories of all the joy, curiosity, and happiness our feline companies bring to our lives. Today, I'd like to share a little more about our favorite kitty, Ferrous.
Ferrous is also a special needs kitty. He has a small facial deformity and bad asthma. Still, Ferrous doesn't let these things stop him from living his best kitten life! He's a rather adventurous guy, and loves watching the world pass by from his copilot position on road trips. He's traveled the country with us - from his birthplace in Texas, up to New Jersey, on a few vacations down to the beaches in North Carolina, and all the way to Alaska on our last cross-country move. When he's not sneezing, shredding paper, or battling his worst enemy (the dog) Ferrous enjoys
birthday, Ferrous is getting a little less interested in making new friends and a bit paunchier around the middle, but he still remains the kooky, curious, sneezy baby we brought home all those years ago.
So, that's my story about my favorite shelter kitty! You can tell yours here.
