Summer Brings Feline Fridays to Wayside Waifs

Summer is here and that means it’s “kitten season” at Wayside Waifs.  Each June and July, Wayside Waifs is inundated with kittens… hundreds of them.  Right now, there are more than 100 cats at Wayside Waifs awaiting adoption, and more than 150 in foster care and waiting to come into the shelter.

To help all of these kitties find forever loving homes, Wayside Waifs is bringing back Feline Fridays.  Every Friday in June and July, Wayside Waifs is offering cat adoption specials.  You can adopt a kitten for $60!  The adoption fee for cats over five months old is just $15.  And the really cool part- if you adopt a second kitty, Wayside will waive the adoption fee!  Cats thrive in pairs, so this is a great deal for you and them!   

If you are thinking about adopting a kitty, we encourage you to bring your entire family to Wayside Waifs to meet all potential feline family members.  We know those cute adorable little kittens are tough to resist, but often adult cats are best for families with small children.  Experienced Wayside adoption counselors and our wonderful volunteers will be on hand to guide you through the entire adoption process, and help you find the purr-fect kitty for your family. 

Remember, being in the shelter can be pretty stressful on these sweet kitties.  Their true personalities will really start to emerge after you take the home.  It may take a few weeks for them to really get adjusted to their lives in their forever homes, so they will need your love and patience!

More than 4 million homeless cats end up in shelters every year in the United States.  By adopting a feline friend from Wayside Waifs, you will be saving a life.  How cool is that?

Need more reasons to adopt a kitty?  Consider these benefits of opening your home to a kitty:

-Cats are great for people who live in apartments and smaller homes… they don’t need a lot of space. 

-They are very clean creatures and even bathe themselves! 

-They also don’t need to be housebroken, using the litter box is second nature to them! 

-They are low-maintenance and independent too!  They don’t require daily walks, just about 15 minutes of daily playtime with you!  

-Cats will also help keep you healthy!  They can actually reduce your blood pressure and prevent hearth disease!
