9. Pet Store Cat
If you’re cat shopping, don’t go to a pet store and post pictures. They may be cute, but pet stores usually get their cats from mills with horrible conditions that crank out pets just for profits.
Take pictures of shelter cats, instead. Then you can help your friends find cats in need of forever homes, too.
Some places have made it so that pet stores can only sell adoptable animals instead of those obtained from mills or backyard breeders. If you live in one of those areas, this rule may be another that doesn’t apply to you.
By all means, post adoptable pets online and help them find homes!
