I confess: I'm a lifelong cat lover. But first and foremost I'm an animal lover. So, this month I'm happy to remind you that October is National Adopt-a-Dog Month, just as back in June I encouraged readers to consider welcoming a needy feline into their homes during National Adopt-a-Cat Month. I try my best to be an equal opportunity animal supporter (even though everyone knows cats are better).
June is National Adopt a Cat Month, sponsored by the American Humane Association (AHA), and on behalf of cat lovers everywhere I want to encourage you to consider adopting a cat from a shelter if you have a place for one in your home and in your heart, and can afford to do so.
