The Benefits of
Adopting an Adult Cat
Most have outgrown that
active phase of climbing curtains and/or climbing your legs.
Young cats are still
playful even though they have outgrown the cute kitten stage.
Adult cats are less
active and can tolerate our busy lifestyles better than a kitten
that needs ongoing stimulation and socialization.
Adult cats will bond with
you just as well as kittens do (after an initial adjustment period).
Adult cats come with less
expense: their vaccinations are often up-to-date and they have
been spayed or neutered.
The temperament of an
adult cat is clearly visible whereas kittens tend to be a surprise
The SPCA of Western
Quebec has many beautiful, affectionate adult cats in our Shelter,
in our Petsmart Adoption Centre, 1851 Merivale Road, Ottawa, and in our
