June is American Humane Association's Adopt A Cat Month, a reason for
celebration if you ask me, especially if we can really move the needle. Fact is, too many cats are dying
in shelters. You can begin your adoption search in the comfort of your
home by using your mouse, go to petfinder.com. Tips from petfinder Goddess and co-founder Betsy Saul.
Once you adopt that cat, what are the appropriate medical
considerations? Dr. Jane Brunt, executive director of the CATalyst
Council answers. She also talks about the sad truth - cats don't receive
nearly as much veterinary care as they should; on average, visiting the
veterinarian less than half as often as most dogs.
Too many cats hardly
ever see a veterinarian.

Once you adopt the cat - then what? Cat behavior consultant Darlene
