The fabulous days of summer are here, full of fun and outdoor activities, but did you know that June is Adopt A Shelter-Cat month? In some shelters, far less cats than dogs find their happily-ever-after, while some might not even be promoted to the public at all. Here at HeARTs Speak, we are lovers of all creatures, great and small, but there is simply no denying the altogether lovely, wild and fantastically eccentric nature of a cat. They’re a companion like no other and exist in a league all their own.
So what better way to celebrate this special month and the fabulous feline itself than with a collection of photographs from our members. Save a life, ADOPT a cat from a shelter!

DESCRIPTION: Charlie was adopted by HeARTs Speak’s Web Producer, Jacquie Childers. She was found stashed in the back of the shelter waiting to be put down. She was nursed back to health by Jacquie and has become a loving, amazing and awesomely bratty part of her family. PHOTO CREDIT: Photo by HeARTs Speak’s Jacquie Childers.
