Kitty Kasa has always been an advocate for shelter cats of all kinds! We believe that each and every shelter kitty is special in their own way and deserves to be in a loving home that is purrfect for them. That also goes for those kitties that are seen as being "less adoptable."
We know that all kitties are equally lovable, but sadly, there are tons of shelter cats out there who are passed up due to age, special needs, superstition, or because they are part of a bonded pair. That is why Adopt A Less Adoptable Pet Week is so important! This is a special week to bring awareness to "less adoptable" pets and change the stigma that one pet is a more worthy companion than the other.
Trick question! No cat is less adoptable! With that being said, while the typical pet spends around 12 weeks in a shelter before being adopted, pets that are considered "less adoptable" are known to spend an average of four times as long in the shelter before finding their forever home.
Senior cats, black cats, bonded pairs, cats with physical disabilities, and cats with certain diseases (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus, Feline Leukemia, Diabetes, etc.) are much more likely to be passed up by someone who is looking for their next furry family member.
For all of those who think that cats like this aren't fit for adoption, joke's on them! Cats who are seen as being "less adoptable" are just as fantastic as their more "desirable" counterparts and even more so in many cases. Here are just a few of the reasons why!
There are a number of ways that you can help out the "less adoptable" cats in your area.
