Giving a shelter rescue kitten a forever home is one of the most rewarding, life-changing events ever, both for the human and the kitten.

Here's your chance to describe the mutual happiness you and your adopted shelter or rescue kittens share, while encouraging other readers to consider shelter adoption. Please use all the space available, and tell a compelling story on behalf of your kitten and shelter kittens all over the world. (Please note: This form is not intended for kittens born as a result of failure to spay your own cat.) Your story may be responsible for changing the life of yet another shelter kitten. Note: For this feature the age of "kittens" is from birth to one year.
