CLICK Little Calvin has found himself in a place with
HERE many other homeless animals. At 6 months old
for video he is still a baby and does not understand. So
of Calvin I am going to introduce you to a few of his
newfound friends and try to explain to him just
what the term “SHELTER CATS” really means.
You are a SHELTER CAT because you were
abandoned and ended up in a pound. Even though
you were not adopted directly from the pound you
were luckily chosen to be amongst all the other
kitties going to rescue and your life was saved.
• Did you know Calvin that shelter cats are a
VERY special breed? Though they can be
any size, shape, age or colour shelter cats
are special because they have been given
a second chance at life, just like you have!
A SHELTER CAT can be any age, but many are kittens like handsome brothers Harper, Harrison & Hugo

wanting to be RESCUED. That is why it is so important to ADOPT A SHELTER CAT for you save TWO lives.”

Cats are very social animals and love to cuddle up with a friend but if you are thinking of adopting one cat
now, then another at a later date it is far easier to adopt TWO cats who already co-exist together peacefully.
Adopting ONE cat and then trying to bond it with a strange cat at a later date can be fraught with stress,
not only for the cats, but for their human family. A bonded pair of cats, like ANNABELLE & ASTRO above
who were adopted together, already loved each other and were a ready made little happy fur family….
