Here at MUTTS, we love all kitties (and all other creatures, too)! However, we think that cats in shelters deserve some extra special attention. Even with the help of loving volunteers and rescue workers, a shelter can seem like a scary place to any animal — especially a kitty.

The good news, though, is that you can help! Have you been considering bringing home a furry feline friend of your own? If so, please-pretty-please pay a visit to your local animal shelter.

Still on the fence? No problem! Here’s a list of 10 purrfect reasons to adopt a shelter cat.
