In Honor Of National Cat Day, Shelters Are Offering Free Kitten And Cat Adoptions
In honor of National Cat Day, one of our nation's holiest holidays, L.A. Animal Services is waiving adoption fees for their cats and kittens on Saturday. Yes that's right: free cats. A grant from the ASPCA has paid for all kitten and cat adoptions fees, which are normally $76, according to their Facebook page. You can browse "available cats" here, and find the nearest shelter here. People who might not be able to commit to owning a cat furever are also encouraged to foster kittens and cats on a temporary basis.
"National Cat Day was created to help bring awareness to the number of orphaned kittens and cats who do not have a home of their own and to encourage cat lovers to honor the cat in their life," a spokeswoman for LA Animal Services said in a statement, per City News Service. We think everyday is an opportunity to "honor the cat in [our] life," but we'll be giving little Pantino some extra nip today, because darn it, he's earned it!!
For last year's National Cat Day, Uber actually delivered cats for people to play with. Pretty weird!
