Did you know that most cats in shelters and rescues are healthy and well-behaved, and are in the shelter through no fault of their own? Animal shelters and rescue groups are full of lovable, active and healthy adoptable cats and kittens just waiting for someone to take them home. Many people go to a pet store or Turkish Angora cat breeder looking to purchase a cat or kitten, but don't realize that they might find Turkish Angora or similar looking cat right in their local shelter. Many cats are given up when their prior owner can no longer afford the financial requirements to keep them. Other times cats are given up to shelters due to a divorce, death in the family, or new housing situation. Most cats and kittens in shelters are simply in need of a new home – they just want a safe, loving, and happy place to live!

Homeless & Orphaned Pets Endeavor: HOPE
Even though living in a cat rescue situation isn't ideal, most rescues (and some animal shelters) try to make the cats more adjustable and adoptable. Sometimes they will expose the animals in their care to other animals in order to help socialize them, making them more playful and able to live with all types of pets. Also, many rescue organizations use foster homes. Foster homes are terrific because adoptable pets get to be socialized with children and other pets while in their temporary foster home, giving them essential experience and training before they go to their new adopted homes. This makes the transition to your home easier and smoother for both the adopted pet and you, the guardian. Whether in a foster home, a boarding situation, or a shelter, many cats available for adoption are already housebroken, litterbox trained and ready to go! This is one of the most positive aspects of pet adoption. Foster parents, have dedicated their time and energy to making pets more adoptable. Remember, you can find so many different kinds of cats in shelters, that it is worth starting there when you are looking for a Norwegian Forest.
