Because there are plenty of cute looks – and shameful displays. But you can’t take all of the kitties home unless you want to be the weird cat people.
It’s best to pet them and love on them some. That’s how you can tell if they have fur that you like, personality and so on.
If you’re lucky, the shelter will let you play with the kitty, too. (And you should definitely adopt from a shelter…give a poor kitty a proper home and support your local government at the same time.)
Eventually, you will pick the right kitty – and the right kitty will pick you.
And that, my friends, is how you find a new furry friend to make home life much more enjoyable!
