I have been volunteering in the boarding section of the shelter for almost a year now for two days per week, one day cleaning and the other cat cuddling.
I needed to change my current shifts over to weekends from the start of March onwards, so now I volunteer on weekends but only one day per week because that is all that is available. I’d like to volunteer more hours though, on both days of the weekend not just one.
I still have my same shifts, just on different days now. I have also started volunteering in the actual shelter itself doing cat cuddling. I had my first shift recently and now I want to adopt a cat.
I actually wanted to adopt an older/senior female cat but I have two Jack Russell x Chihuahua’s and I’m not sure how the cat or my dogs would react/adjust to a new animal in their environment. I think it might be best to adopt a kitten so that the kitten can grow up with my dogs. It’s a big decision though, I have been thinking about the possibility of adopting a cat for over a year now and still am not sure.
