The process of adopting and taking responsibility of a pet that the pet's previous owner has left (abandoned) to a shelter or to a rescue organization due to various reasons like lack of people to take care of the pet or financial circumstances, is called Pet adoption. Common sources to adopt a pet is an animal shelter or from the rescue groups. Some rescue organizations give ownership to the adopters of the pet, while others use a guardianship model, where the organization will still have some control over the animal's future even after letting others adopt the pet. There is also an easy option available, which is online pet adoption. These websites have databases of pets being rescued by thousands of rescue groups and animal shelters, and the public can easily search it as it is open to them. The most common reason to have a cat is for companionship. People who never have a cat as a pet in their lives often believe that cats are unsocial and distant pets. If you've ever received love from an affectionate and a friendly kitty, you know that the ‘unsocial' is indeed a myth. Cats are not the solitary and reserved type of animals that they had been believed all the time.
