The Independent Cat Society's November/December Adoption Promotion is still ongoing. We are offering the adoption of a cat 5 years or older and we will waive the adoption fee. This will include a spay or neuter, current vaccines, flea treatment, nail trim and a free initial vet visit with one of our participating vets. We have many wonderful over 5 cats available please stop out and check them out soon.
We also offer the adoption of a cat under 5 for $75 and a companion cat for no charge. This still includes the above mentioned spay or neuter, current vaccines, etc, etc.
November is 'Adopt a Senior Pet Month.' Help us to give our cats something to celebrate this holiday season, a home and family of their very own.
Any questions please contact the Independent Cat Society 219.785.4936.

November is Adopt a Senior Pet Month, and we want to challenge you to look behind the fluffy cuteness of a new kitten and see the beauty that older pets have to offer! Here are our top 10 reasons to adopt a senior cat.
Top 10 reasons to adopt a senior cat:
1. When senior cats are adopted, they seem to understand that they’ve been rescued, and are all the more thankful for it.
2. A senior cat’s personality has already developed, so you’ll know if he or she is a good fit for your family.
3. You can teach an old cat new tricks: Senior cats have the attention span and impulse control that makes them easier to train than their youthful counterparts.
4. A senior cat may very well already know basic household etiquette (like not attacking your feet at night) anyway!
5. In particular, senior cats are often already litter trained and are less likely to “forget” where the box is.
6. A senior cat won’t grow any larger, so you’ll know exactly how much cat you’re getting.
7. Senior cats are often content to just relax in your company, unlike younger cats, who may get into mischief because they’re bored.
8. Speaking of relaxing, senior cats make great napping buddies.
9. Senior cats often know that scratching posts (not furniture) are for scratching and toys (not hands or feet) are for biting.
10. Senior cats are some of the hardest to find homes for––so when you adopt a senior cat, you’re truly saving a life.
