kittensWhat’s better than the purrs, nuzzles and spunk of a kitten? How about two kittens?   In celebration of National Adopt a Shelter Cat Month in June, you can take advantage of AHS’ special Twice as Nice program and adopt two kittens for just $150!   Not only do you get double the cuteness, but there are also a variety of social and behavioral benefits that come from adopting a pair of kittens together.

Benefits of pairing kittens

Tempers normal kitten behaviors such as scratching or biting – having a second cat, especially an older one, models appropriate behaviors
Cleaner cats – cats groom each other, often cleaning places that a single cat can’t reach on its own
Safeguarding furniture – kittens are curious and full of energy, if they have a furry playmate, they will use up a lot of that energy on non-destructive activities
It’s fun – there are two million cat videos on YouTube, with 24.6 billion views between them, so it’s clear that cats are fun to watch. And you can’t have a “cats playing patty cake” video (which has more than 2.4 million views) without two cats. And you can’t inspire the creative genius of teens who did a voiceover on what the cats were thinking in that same video (which has more than 20.7 million views)
Having double the animals isn’t double the work – because pets with siblings are happier and well-adjusted, more time will be spent enjoying your animals than fixing all of the destructive behavior that the boredom of being alone brings
  If you aren’t sure kittens are the right fit, there are plenty of adult cats who would also love to go home with you today.   All of our cats are spayed/neutered and vaccinated and adoption fees include a free pet carrier, bag of Hill's Science Diet Food, free follow-up veterinary exam with VCA Animal Hospitals and 10 percent off at Arizona Humane Society Petique retail locations.   Check out our cat profiles and pick out the perfect pet for you!
