Kitties make the world a better place—am I right or am I right? Let’s show our floofins some ♥ by educating people about kitten mills and pet stores (and how important it is to adopt instead of buy animals) and the necessity of spaying and neutering.

    i love my cute adopted kitten benny because he loves life in general. When we got him from the shelter they told us they found him and his sister bumped in a box and left for them and that they smelt like a barbeq. btw his sister did get adopted as well.

    There’s not a single thing i could grab out of all the love she gives to me. Thou, i think my favorit thing about her is, when i hold her like a child and she starts to give me catkisses. She loves to kiss her mom and daddy:) And we love her, for every breath she takes!

    For me, it’s a bit more complicated than just one cat or kitten. I have my Jude who was a stray that the neighbors were trying to catch & take to the pound. My problem with that was that the pounds kill animals that aren’t adopted after a certain time. Why not just take the extra time to take them to a no-kill shelter? So what I do now, is when people dump off cats or kittens, I try to feed them and get them healthy before taking them down. They are mean at the start, yes, but after getting used to me, they all make really lovely house pets. The thing I love the most about this is, even though there are so many of them, I get to experience watching them grow & become animals that trust people. It’s hard sometimes to take them down to the shelters, because I get easily attached to them after awhile, but knowing that they are all cute & cuddly and in a place that will see they get to a better home really makes me happy. It’s been ongoing like that around here since 2002, but has progressed so much since 2009. Jude had other brothers & sisters which I took care of before adopting them out, his sister had two litters – both of which I took care of before adopting them out – and you can’t forget the various ones that showed up that just couldn’t survive outside. One lived in my room for about a year because all the other cats beat her up and she was always getting hurt, after awhile she wanted to go outside so we let her be an outside cat for awhile before taking her down too. My mum even took in one that was found near a little oil reserve area on a rainy day. Her & the ladies at her work were so worried about the poor thing getting crushed, so she ended up with me. It’s such a wonderful & rewarding feeling to take care of these animals when no one else will <3

    how she can be so stubborn:) Like she has ‘a spot of the week’ and you DO NOT TOUCH whatever it is! If you do she will find another spot on top of something in the area around her old one. Like if u move her chair she will sit on your laundry, etc. and *stare* until you move it back.

    I have one cat whose name is Thunder. I call him Thunder because his purr is as loud as thunder on a stormy night. My family and I have had him for six years now, since the day we adopted him. He is the sweetest cat I’ve ever met. He also acts like a human, for example, when I talk to him he answers back with a meow. Finally, he seems to be smiling all the time, which gives me a sense of happiness in my heart.

    I have two kittens (although currently we’re also fostering three others)and I love how they’re personalities compliment each other! One is shy, the other is confident. The shy one isn’t a play fighter, so when she does play fight the other one goes easy on her 😛 Also, they have very unique markings :)

    i love my kitty fluffy. When we found her she had a really bad case of flees and her mom was gone. After bringing her home she was really scared but after a while she got use to being around my family and me. I’ve now had her for 12 years and she’s my best friend. ^.^

    I know you are not supposed to have favorites, but of the 4 cats I have rescued, I would have to say Bella is my favorite. She is mommy’s girl, and the other 3 are daddy’s. She is a torte Turkish angora that has the best personality. Spunky, funny and just so sweet.
    You are welcome to add or view her on facebook. She is my lil darlin.
    https://www.facebook.com/bellaangelica.cannuli
    She was a rescue from a bunch of abusive kids that used to hold her over caged pitbulls and snap at her when she was just a kitten.
    She can’t STAND to have her little paws dirty, and in the morning, she will talk to you. Good Morning Bella- “meow.” the more you say, the more she will respond. Cutest kitty ever!
    I wouldn’t trade her for anything.

    My favorite thing about my rescue cat, a Siamese named Sylvester, is that he likes to play. When i walk around a corner Sylvester is always there hiding, waiting to attack me. Then chasing me around as i scream in horror for my life. it makes me LOL and he is my wonderful bundle of joy. [: <3

    I have three cats that I adopted named Tobi, Adriana and Damien. They were all subject to abuse and found on the streets. We adopted them and brought them in to give them loving home. They’re skiddish and feared easily, but what I love the most about them is that although they’ve endured such a terrible past they are such strong sweethearts now. I’m proud of them and I’m happy to have them be a part of our family.

    My cat Oliver 😀 I love him so much. He’s a Maine-coon mix and has long fluffy grey hair and the cute golden eyes! I remember when him is brother, and his two identical sisters were born in my backyard 3-4 years ago and their mom disappeared so I had to take care of them until they were old enough to find homes for. Unfortunately his brother died though :( but I found his sisters homes but I just couldn’t give him away cause I loved him sooo much 😀 He always use to walk with me to my bus stop every day and then when I came home he would be waiting at the bus stop for me. Its like he stayed there all day waiting for me to get back 😀

    Champ is super sucky, loving to follow me around, sit in my lap and snuggle up to me at night.
    Kiki is still slightly feral and she enjoys to hunt and catch bugs in my room.
    KitKat is ever so curious energetic and she is constantly exploring things and running around!

    All three of my cats are rescues & I adore them!

    Just recently me and a friend saved a month old kitten who was being attacked by a dog, we cleaned him up and started to look for some rescue shelters to take him in… they were all full. So we took him home, and he started to grow on us and just loved to be cuddled. In the end hes staying with us and his name is Loki. <3

    What I love the most about my adopted Kitty, Junior, is that I believe it was destiny that brought us together. My last cat, Kitty, was also rescued, I found her near my house when I was around 5. I had her for an amazing 13 years, but then she sadly passed away, and that week was devastating for me, the hardest thing I’ve ever been through honestly, but that same week I found Junior, my current cat, near the tree in front of my house. He seemed to be days old, so I rescued him, and he is/was IDENTICAL to my kitty that had just passed away. For that reason I named him Junior, to always have him as if he was a son from my Kitty. Which is why I feel like destiny brought Junior to me, during those hard days I had to go through. Plus Junior, even though he is very hyper active for a 2 year old cat, loves us very much, which is why I love him SO much as well (:

    My kitty Missy was given to me by a friend when my kitty was 3 weeks old, she was abandoned by her mother and her brothers and sisters died. Me and my family bottle fed her every 2 hours. Getting a rescue isn’t always the easiest way, but it is the most rewarding. Adopt. I love my kitty Missy because she is always friendly to everyone she meets, she is one of the nicest cats I know.

    All of my cats are rescues but Dutchess is the only one who is still alive. She is probably the most lovable cat you could ever meet and she has the pretties eyes. She loves spending her time in a sink in one of my bathrooms. What I love most about her is how she loves anyone in my family unconditionally.

    I love my cat Sebastian soooooo much! I guess you can consider him a rescue, he was a stray and couldnt really defend himself due to he was de-clawed by the other owners and was very thin. He stayed outside of my house and so I took him in and hes been a part of my family ever since. I consider him my son. Hes VERY spoiled <3

    She is loving but sometimes aloof
    She is playful and sometimes needs proof
    That her pet (that is me) is her servant
    So I must every day be obedient
    When she cries for her food I must feed her
    When she meows for attention I heed her
    She is cheeky, reliable and cute
    From the day she arrived knew we’d suit
    All in all she’s the best friend I have
    And for that, every day I feel glad

    My cat, Mittens. I got him when I was five years old and loved him until the day he left this world. He was there through my childhood as my partner in crime in my imagination. He was there to listen to me vent about how much I hated my life in my teenage years. He was also there to see me become a grown woman and share my successes. He may no longer be on this earth now, but he will always be in my heart.

    My little rescue is purrfect. Moses’ past times include iPad bug game, leash walking, plant chewing (non-toxic of course!), kitchen bread stealing and 18 hour cat napping. He is so fantastic, I couldn’t imagine life without his daily 5:00am wake up meows or my many a-broken lamps from moth hunting. Thank you Moses, you certainly make being a crazy cat lady fun.

    My little sweetums(yes, I sound like an aged cat lady) showed up on our doorstep nearly starved to death, vomiting and having diarrhea missing alot of teeth and my parents didn’t think she’d last the night. But she got better and now she’s really sweet and bright and pretty much the best companion animal ever. The awesomest thing about her is how she’ll stick her paw right in your face and get you to take her paw. And if you ignore her she’ll get this evil look on her face and hiss until you hold her little paw. 😀

    I have 5 rescue cats, and I didn’t have to pay even a dollar for any of them. I found them all and brought them in off the streets, and in my opinion they are much, much better than any exspensive pure bred cart! Since they’ve experienced the struggle of not having a home, they just really appreciate even the simplest things I do for them, and they are so affectionate and sweet! They’re my babies (:

    I got my cat from my work. I work in a retirment community where not all the residents know how to treat animals anymore. I heard about her from a friend there, the owner would choke her and drag her across the room among other things. Maddy (My kitty) Would attack the lady back, and people wondered why. So I took her, shes amazing 😀 Shes the most loveable thing ever, she just needed the right person <3

    I love that Lulu is the loudest cutest cat I have ever met, she is polydactyl, does somersaults when she gets excited, and is my cuddly baby cat. I love that Diddy is the friendliest most handsome cat I have ever met, loves everyone, comes running when you call his name, and looks and acts like a mini-panther. I love that Sookie is the sweetest prettiest cat I have ever met, that she has grown to trust me (feral kitten), has a raspy voice, and sleeps with me everynight.

    I love my cat’s cauliflour ear. Her previous owners didn’t look after her properly and she ended up with an ear infection so severe that she can’t hear out of one ear and its all crumpled up. The poor girl had to have a serious operation when she first came into the shelter to try and treat it. On top of this their neglect has lead to her having an attachment and anxiety disorder (which despite peoples’ sceptical looks cats do have) but she’s coming on in leaps and bounds and hopefully she’ll become a relaxed member of the family. We’re all trying our best for as long as it takes because s’s such an adorable cat.

    I adopted my cat Hayley two years ago and she has become my very best friend! She was only 3 months old when I got her and now she’s all grown up. She cuddles with me under the covers every night and is always there if I need to talk about something (which may sound crazy, but she’s a good listener!) She makes me happy in so many ways and I can’t imagine my life without her. My friends always make fun of me because I got her picture on my debit card, but oh well!

    My cat has such a personality! He recently discovered “helicopters”, the little seed pods from oak trees that spin like helicopters when you throw them in the air. We had a big burst of wind when he was outside and he went completely nuts when they all started falling out of the tree at once. He loves being outside, supervised of course. He saw his first snake this year and was yelling at it from the porch.

    My little man from the moment saw him at the pound (and to this day i still swear he cried out my name :-p) has been my best friend. The best thing is he does every day is sit at the window sill next to the front door when he hears my car coming in. He gives a little meow and then is immediately at my side as soon as the door opens demanding love and attention. The perfect pet

    my cat sheldon is really sweet and nice. he wasn’t like that all the time when we first brought him home he was terrified of everyone and would scratch us whenever he could. but years of love and tenderness toward him have really turned him around and i love him just as much as i did the first time i saw him.

    She loves me unconditionally. Lucy knows her name, how to lay down, snuggle, hungry, time for bed, birds out the window, and all kinds of stuff. I barely signed the lease to my first place and I had adopted her. She got me thru my bad break-up and we’ve been super close ever since!!

    Salem is the fluffiest little thing. He came from a litter in which all the other cats were killed, and at 2 weeks was left in the cold to die. After taking him in, I fell in love with the little rascal. Everything from snuggling up with some tea, a book and him, to bottle feeding was spent with this little guy. I love him for him.

    what i love most about my Adopted kitten named Spirit, is that she knows i saved her life:) she had a serious tail injury 5 weeks ago before we adopted her the shelter said it was just a scratch. it turned out she had 1 inch of bone exposed. we have over 600$ in medical expenses because she required surgery. The Shelter told us that if we didn’t adopt her when we did, she would have been put down because there is no way they could have afforded her bills. she was a very shy kitten up untill a week after we had her now she and i are insepperable:) i think she knows that i saved her life:) now Spirit is a happy playful adorable kitty:) she is white with 1 green eye and 1 blue eye and i love her to bits!!!<3

    My kittens and cats aren’t adopted but I did find Ruby in a ditch across the street and took her in. & She gave me all my best friends I have today. What I love most is all they love me, they pet me, rub their nose up agianst my legs & show me they care. When it has been a hard day & I have no around that will just be there for me I know that my kitties will be, and I love them very much for it. But if I were ever to get another cat it would be at a shelter to adopt.

    The best part about my cat is that when im sleeping he comes in my room the middle of the nigh and curls up on my pillow next to my head. Another amazing part about my cat is that he loves to play including fetch. yes my cat plays fetch with me. He grabs his toy bird sets it on my lap and then waits for me to throw it so he can run and bring it back.

    My cat is the cutest and kindest cat in the world.

    Eyery night when I go to sleep she comes over to my bed, lies on my chest and purrs until I fall asleep, then she rests herself on the couch.

    Giving this nearly dead cat a home was the best choice I made in my entire life. She gives so much, I could never ever repay that.

    Both my cats are rescues. Sophie and MewMew :) I was diagnosed with epilepsy three years ago and had to have a temperal lobectomy on the right side of my brain. When I came home from the hospital and ever since Sophie curls up around my head and puts her head on my head. It’s like she is saying to me “it’s ok mommy, I will watch out for you” in the morning she is still there. MewMew curls in at my side and also stays put. I love that with all the stigma of epilepsy and let alone brin surgery my cats don’t care. They know I am the same person I always was.

    What I love most about all my rescued kittens and cats is how much they change from when you first get them to after about a month. They start off so shy and bashful, and then they turn into a big ball of love and fun. (: can’t go wrong with rescue cats. (: they are just so precious.

    I got my cat Spike back in August 2010, at some lady’s house who had tons of animals. My family from MA. came up and my cousin was getting a puppy. So, the lady’s house was hot so me and my mom sat outside. Then there was this cute little grey tabby, who was just rubbing on my legs. I told my mom “I WANT HIM”. At first she said no. So, I started fake crying, so I could have him. Finally we just took him when my cousin paid for her puppy. Spike was free! My dad didn’t know about spike, but he was excited about him about 10 minutes later. My mom said “Just shove him in his arms. He can’t resist”. Spike is 2 1/2 years old now.

I got hims froms a shelter by my house and when I saw hims he was all cutes and furrys. :3 it’s way better to adopt a lil fur ball than to get from a breeder cause adopted ones have way more personality and it’s better cause you have saved a life by adopting. :3

    What I love most about my rescued kitten, Athena, is, when she jumps off of things she likes to make a little purr-like meowing noise. It’s super adorable. She also talks a lot. When I look at her, when I say I love her, when I play with her, when she wants something. Even when she’s just walking around the house. She’s so cute and fluffy, she’s the best pet I’ve ever had!

    My adopted kitties are two of the best things in my life. My parents have adopted animals (both dogs and cats) for much of my life, and after I got married, my husband and I rushed to bring two cats into our lives. They have been loads of trouble (each requiring costly and time-consuming medical interventions to save their lives), but worth every penny and moment, multiple times over. I would do anything for them, and they always repay me countless times in love. Knowing that they might not have survived without our adopting them saddens me. Everyone should adopt at least one animal. If we can share our studio apartment and small salary with two needy kitties, then almost anyone else can afford to bring animals into their lives. Everyone, please adopt! Don’t buy animals.

    This shirt is so cute! I love my adopted kitty. I adopted him from the local shelter I volunteer at. He weighed less than a pound and was severely underweight and malnourished. Many vet visits and several years later, he is a totally healthy cat! Adopting is the only way to go!

    I love my cat because she is willing to play but also to just lie down and chill. Despite a natural need for gentle handling, she’s incredibly tolerant with smaller children, but makes noise to let them know when they’re really bugging her. She provides infinite, unjudging love and always listens to me.

    My kitty isn’t adopted, but my friend, her mother, and I rescued her mother from the streets when she was pregnant with her. 3 days later she had 5 kittens and I’m keeping one (my first cat!) and finding homes for the rest of them. Plus we’re getting all their rabies shots and getting them all fixed!

    I just adopted a kitten on Friday! He’s a bombay mix and we named him Milo. I always thought I was a dog lover, but this little guy stole my heart. I’m such a proud mama and so honored to be giving him a loving home and life. I have helped spread the message of puppy mills, but just finding out there are kitten mills too just breaks my heart! I’m so happy to see other people happy when they hear that Milo is a rescue :)

    I love how she bangs constantly on my door at 3 in the morning, trying to get in. I also love how my other one will follow me around until I walk her to her food bowl and sit there, stroking her back as she eats. If I leave while she is still eating, she will look up at me and walk away, too.

    I have three rescued kitties. One of them is an older cat that we took in because her owner passed away. The other two are mother & daughter that my mom rescued from outside of her job. The reason I love my rescued kitties is because they’re so loving & grateful to have a home & a warm place to sleep at night. They’re as good, maybe better than any cat you would adopt at a store. I will always love my rescued cats with all my heart :) <33

    My Kitty is now 13 years old. I rescued her when she was just a kitten. I love her so much. Everyone says I am obsessed with her…and I guess they are right. She is such a great cat…she sleeps next to my head every night and if I am sick or ever upset she is right by my side. She has literally been with me through everything!!! She is the best cat ever!!!

    I love my adopted kitty because she’s calm and sweet. She has a very high tolerance for annoying behaviors and a quirky personality. Every now and then I catch her making out with a pillow. She’s also got a very loud purr that is calming when I’m trying to fall asleep and likes to bite the bridge of my nose.

    I am 13 years old and joined the street team June 2015. I am a vegetarian. I have a passion for working to help save animals. I love my family and my 2 pugs, Daisy and Diesel. I plan to work for Peta or Mercy For Animals someday because they helped me become a vegetarian and begin a whole new life of having common sense towards all animals.
