Why so many adoption specials? Quoting from the just released Cat Care Quarterly:

“'Why so many adoption specials?', you may be wondering. 'Don’t adoption specials devalue the cats we care so much for?!'

No, the specials don’t devalue the cats at all. We’ve had a few questions about the specials, and thought it might be wise to address these questions in a Cat Care Quarterly cover article."
