Suggested headlines:

 

Shelters are empty!

It’s kitten season

You had me at meow

Family moves and leaves cat.

Adult cat traded in for kitten.

June is Adopt-a-cat month; August is not give-it-back month

Ready to give a cat a forever home?

Cats are not disposable animals!

Cat surrendered as new sofa is brought home.

Its kitten season and unaltered cats are multiplying like—well cats.

Thinking of getting a cat or kitten or know someone who is?

Making sure your heart, head and home are ready to give a cat a forever home.

After hearing one too many times about cats being surrendered or abandoned for ridiculous reasons I decided since I was staying at home so much with my cat and her new medical problem, I’d do what I do and write a book about it.

If it stops one family from moving and leaving their cats to fend for themselves; one adult cat from being surrendered because the new kitten is cuter, one cat from being taken to the shelter because the owner bought a new sofa it values more than their cat, or one cat who when it needs extra medical care is let go—then I’ll be happy.

I’d love to see a headline someday that the shelters are empty. That all pets have been altered, there are no more unwanted, homeless pets and pets are now living out their entire lives with the person who adopted them, loved and treated as family.

If you know someone who is thinking about getting a cat. Tell them, or gift them this ebook.  It’s a short read, it’s not expensive and you may just plant the seed that adoption of a pet is not to be taken lightly or done on a whim.
