You know that cat you've been thinking about adopting? This weekend is the perfect time!

June is Adopt-a-Shelter-Cat Month and the Dumb Friends League is celebrating by offering $10 adoption fees for all adult cats (1 year and older) this weekend, June 3–5.

All cat adoptions include spay/neuter surgery, vaccinations, a microchip identification implant, and a free visit to a participating veterinarian within the first 14 days of adoption. This special is valid at all Dumb Friends League adoption locations.

These and other awesome friends are available for adoption - visit www.ddfl.org/adoption/ for more information.

Why adopt a feline friend? There are many terrific reasons why cats make wonderful pets. In fact, they’re America’s #1 companion—and here are just a few reasons why:

10 Reasons Why Cats Make Great Pets

  1. Easy to please: Cats are happy living indoors, whether watching out the window or napping in your lap.
  2. Good roommates: Cats make great urban dwellers and are popular among people that live in the city, apartments or smaller homes because they don’t require much space or a backyard. Plus, they’re the perfect welcome home after a long day.
  3. Entertaining: Cats love to play—with you or by themselves—and are guaranteed to make you laugh!
  4. Neat & clean: Cats spend one-third of their waking hours grooming themselves.
  5. Tidy as can be: Cats do not need to be litter-box trained. It is a natural habit continued from their ancestors.
  6. Pest hunters: Cats have incredibly sensitive hearing, even while sleeping, which helps them rid your home of mice and other pests.
  7. Smart: Cats can be clicker trained to sit, come, roll over and do “high fives.”
  8. Sociable: Cats can live happily with kids, other cats and even dogs.
  9. Great company: Cats will keep you company, comfort you when you’re blue and keep you warm on cold nights.
  10. Good for you: Cats can make you healthier and happier by lowering your blood pressure, reducing the risks of heart attacks and strokes, and improving your mood.
