Celebrate Adopt a Cat Month with the Allen County SPCA

Happy June, everyone! While you are probably excited to spend your weekends at the lake and hit every festival at Headwaters Park, I am happy to celebrate Adopt a Cat Month with the Allen County SPCA! I know we all see those heart wrenching ASPCA commercials with Sarah McLaughlin and just want to turn the channel because we think malnourished animals and the world’s lack of good pet care just isn’t our problem, but trust me, you want it to be. Just one day at a shelter can melt even the coldest heart. Owning a pet isn’t like listening like listening to “In the Arms of an Angel” on repeat. I would compare it more to “Can’t Stop the Feeling” by Justin Timberlake. Pet ownership, especially owning a cat when they are chasing a laser pointer on you feet, is incredibly rewarding and entertaining.

If you are interested in Alannis, visit the ASPCA’s website or visit them in person at 4914 Hanna St, Fort Wayne, IN 46806. I had the chance to see Alannis in person and I had to fight my urges to hand them my debit card and take her home. Even with a flamepoint (red point) Siamese named Doctor Stud in residence (just like my Jacob), I really believe that Alannis is just the prettiest face around. The Allen County SPCA is currently participating in the Jackson Galaxy Cat Pawsitive project! You may be wondering what does that mean and who is Jackson Galaxy? First off, Jackson Galaxy is a popular cat behaviorist best known for his TV show My Cat From Hell on the Animal Planet. In order to help cats become more adoptable and feel more comfortable in a...
