5. Consider adopting
If you want to bring home a new kitten or cat, please consider adopting from a local shelter. With so many animals up for adoption every day, adopting a kitten or cat can potentially save it from euthanasia. Older and black animals are particularly at risk of being overlooked by people and having to be put down. When adopting from a shelter, you may also be able to earn discounts for spaying/neutering, checkups, vaccinations, and more.
