Adopt a cat should be every day. Yes, I know that Adopt a Cat Month is to highlight the importance of, and to promote and raise awareness for cat adoption. But every animal lover (not just cat lovers) should be aware of the countless animals suffering in shelters as they await a forever home.
Some aren't lucky (spare a thought for those poor souls in high kill shelters).
As most of you know, I am a rescue cat. Mum adopted me from Wood Green, the Animal Charity in July 2011. I was only 10 weeks old. Read our story HERE

But it's not only young kittens who need rescuing.
There are so many adult and senior pets desperately seeking a home too. Imagine what it must feel like for them. Abandoned, unloved, desperate.
Please, if you are looking for a cat, you must consider adopting. DO NOT SHOP.
Remember: ADOPT DON'T SHOP and help spread the word!
My mum has this PET RESCUE board on Pinterest. Most of these cases are URGENT and as I know many of our readers are from the US you may find this board of great help if you are looking to adopt a pet from your local area.
Follow Marie Symeou's board Pet Adoption & Rescue on Pinterest.
Meanwhile, for Moggy Monday here in the UK, here are some cats looking to be adopted at Wood Green. The charity currently has 70 kittens in their care.

And please forgive us another plug for our rescue story book A FOREVER HOME FOR ATHENA (about my experience as a rescue cat, of course!) We are hoping to raise funds for 3 of our fave animal charities so please help us by sharing.
